A Message From Shannon Brecher

Hello my name is Shannon Brecher and I am a senior at East Greenwich High School. My sister Zooey is a freshman at East Greenwich High School and she has Autism. Zooey has been participating in Special Olympics sports since she was little sports like basketball, soccer, and track. When Zooey was playing Special Olympic sports I volunteered and became her partner. This year Zooey and I played Unified Volleyball at East Greenwich High School. We were on the division one State Championship winning team. We both plan of playing Unified Basketball this spring!
