"I would like to nominate Amanda Altemus and Allison England for top puppies. Amanda and Allison attended the annual Special Olympics Youth Leadership Summit in Waterville Valley at the end of November. The Youth Leadership Summit is an activity filled opportunity for a unified pair of students to share ideas and tools to continue to build positive school culture and establish ongoing communication with other schools to network and share best practices.
Shortly after we returned from the Summit we received an email from the NH Special Olympics Program Director who were not only impressed with Allison and Amanda’s strong student bond but also how well they interacted with all the other students and teachers attending the Summit and their articulation of how BHS has been a leader in unifying our school with the implementation of Peer to Peer Art, Music and Wellness, Basketball, the Bedford Bobcats and now our Leadership class is gearing up to host a Unified Prom.
With that, an exciting opportunity was extended to us. Amanda and Allison have been selected to represent NH and join the NH delegation of 36 athletes and 14 coaches in the 2018 US Games Youth Leadership Experience in Seattle, Washington for a week in July. I am very proud and excited for these young ladies and we are looking forward to experiencing the 2018 Special Olympic US Games."
Congrats to Amanada and Allison!
