Jennings High School Student Council shines at Special Olympics Track Meet!
On Tuesday, April 26th, seven members of the Jennings High School Student Council served as "buddies" at the regional Special Olympics of Missouri track meet at De Soto High School in De Soto, Missouri. The students were buddies this year with individuals at the assisted living facility in Jefferson County, Next Step for Life. The compassion our students demonstrated towards those athletes was remarkable. Every athlete that our students were buddies with medaled in all of their events, more importantly, our student leaders left with an appreciation, understanding, and love for those athletes they worked with during this fantastic event! Jennings High School Student Council has proudly sent volunteers to this track meet since 2015 and our work with Special Olympics has helped us earn the distinction as a Special Olympics of Missouri School of Character for the past four years.
