Champions Together is an inclusion club of Special Olympic athletes and high school athletes. The school has had a Champions Together since 2014 and advised by high school librarian, Mrs. Brenda Strimple.

This upcoming winter season, Champions Together is going to be very busy. “For Christmas, we are putting together a party after school for the special education students,” president Mariah Gentile says. This party will be right after school on December 12 before the high school girl’s basketball against Switzerland County at home. “My students are very excited to celebrate Christmas with the other students,” special education teacher, Mr. Trace Tucker says. There will be games, crafts, and cookie decorating at the party.

Another upcoming event for the club is during the girl’s basketball game against South Dearborn at home on January 6. The Champions Together board members decided to put together a team to play against South Dearborn’s team during half times of the junior varsity and varsity halftimes. The teams consist of 3 to 2 ratio of special olympic athletes to high school athletes. “Having all athletes play together is a great way to get everyone included and involved, and we are all very excited for this event”, vice-president Elexah Roepke says.

There are other events that the Champions Together club is organizing such as zumba with Mr. Tucker’s students and a sports clinic in the spring for all special olympic athletes. Champions Together is a very active club making giant strides with the inclusion revolution.
