Schools hold Special Olympics-style field day

The Franklin County Schools last month honored all its athletes, of any shape, size and ability, as it hosted a Special Olympics-style Field Day.

Students from both Franklin County Schools and the Apalachicola Bay Chart School took part, in events that included the 100-meter dash, softball throw, obstacle course, broad jump, sack race, hula hoops, and minute-to-win-it games. Lynn Clark worked to oversee the event.

Lunch was provided by BJs Pizza, and the colorful ice cream truck from the sheriff’s office treated athletes to ice cream.

Along with teachers from both schools, athletes included Jacody Johnson, Corbin Langley, Rebeca Sanchez-Carlos, Avery Sinitiere, Isaiah Stanley, Hailey Tomas, Caden Haynes, Shawn Nichols, Brayden Evans, Joe Pierce, Leiry Andres-Bartolome, Daelyn Page, Jaden Dempsey-Williams, Nolan Sinitiere, Alexis Wheetley, Dustin Curry, Jonathan Evans, Vinny Karecki, Josie Smith, Brianna Cooper, Nicholas Cooper, Janalyn Hippensteal, Job McBride, Robert McNeal, Michael Melton, Dylan Love, Laena Dively, Bentley Leonard, Johan Ramos-Flores and Carlos Ramos Flores.
