At the school board's November 10 regular board meeting, leadership students at Orting High School Gavin Mangold and Christian Cline were recognized for coordinating the Unified Soccer Game last month. The event was 100 percent student-led.
Jennifer Babcock, teacher of the Orting High School's special education life skills program that helps students ages 14-21 learn skills towards independence in daily living tasks, community access, self-advocacy skills, career exploration and job skills, shared how impactful this event was for her students. Her students wrote letters and notes for Mangold and Cline that Board President Carrie Thibodeaux shared as well. Mangold and Cline read some of the heartfelt letters to those attending the board meeting.
Thank you to Mangold and Cline for their leadership and coordinating this event!
