What a great night at the Nashville Special Olympics held at Lipscomb University! I had the privilege of being a banner judge and boy, was that a tough job!
There were so many beautiful banners that represented each area, and I know a lot of hard work went into them! I was blessed to spend the evening with our current Miss Tennessee Shelby Thompson, a fellow judge. What a beautiful person inside and out! One of the biggest blessings of this title is all of the new connections I get to make!
Shelby even wants to volunteer at our next pageant. One of the many highlights of the ceremony was hearing gold medalist figure skater Scott Hamilton offer words of wisdom to the athletes. Oh, and we cannot forget the parachuting cows from Chic Fil A! Above all, it was so wonderful to be a part of such an important night for so many courageous individuals!
I look forward to being part of the Special Olympics for many years to come!
