We remember fondly all that Garrett Rice did for our Special Olympics athletes. Our friend passed away on July 1st. His time as County Manager saw increased participation, additional sports and more volunteers. He modernized the operations of SOMC office and improved the financial position while also working full time. He was driven to improve the athlete experience and was guided by his two rules when facing a decision: Is it in the best interest of the athletes? And when in doubt refer back to rule one.
He was quite a man!
Thank you NRG Gives! And thank all our supporters for voting us #1.
“This $100,000 donation is thrilling. With it we can advance the self-confidence of Special Olympics athletes and Unified partners to become contributing, participating members of our community. Our leadership team will have the resources to grow our local tournaments into the future and we so sincerely appreciate the recognition and funding from NRG Gives.”
Scott Otterbein, County Manager
