Always Brave in the Attempt

Allison Nichols may not always win, but she is always "brave in the attempt." As a junior at Washburn Rural High School, Allison’s strongest subject is math. She loves reality TV, show tunes and musical movie like “Mamma Mia.” She was also born with Down syndrome, which makes participation on her other love – sports – an inspiration. For Allison, stepping on the volleyball court is not just about the competition. It's also about the camaraderie she finds with athletes matched to her abilities. And the Special Olympics playing field is one where athletes care as much about the other competitors as they do about themselves. Read more about Allison at the link below.
