Tate High School Hosts District Special Olympics (With Photo Gallery)

March 18, 2019

The 22nd Annual Escambia County School District’s Special Olympics Spring Games were held last week at Tate High School with about 600 athletes from about two dozen schools and hundreds of Tate student volunteers assisting as “buddies” and event workers.

The event began with Special Olympic athletes running with the Special Olympics Torch around the track.  There was also an Olympic Village with plenty of fun and games for the athletes to enjoy after they completed their track and field events.

Athletes received the traditional gold, silver and bronze medals for top finishes.
