Golden Fleece media covered the 2016 Buncombe County Special Olympic Games held here at Roberson on Thursday. Peer buddy Lilly Talley explained to our staff what makes this day so special to her.
“I love it; it’s great to see them (the athletes) out there doing the events and enjoying themselves. It’s happiness for me,” Talley said.
This gallery focuses on four students in the Progressive Education Program (PEP) and their buddies. Congratulations to all the athletes who participated in the games!
