Awareness at the College Level

By Adam Cable

Myself and "Fast Eddie" at the 2014 Special Olympics Michigan Summer Games

As a student at Central Michigan University, I have been blessed with a plethora of experiences both on and off campus. Nothing will trump my experience with Special Olympics Michigan. As a brother of Beta Theta Pi, I have watched our greek life take passion in volunteering with the Olympics and with Project Unify. Project Unify at CMU is a pretty big deal to us since we are one of the first universities to have this program. As a future band teacher I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to create a unified band when I have my own classroom, and to be able to teach students to understand each other's differences and to seek interest in common goals while having fun. I leave CMU with a passion to spread awareness to end the R word, to include everyone regardless of their different ability, and to have fun in all walks of life. Without volunteering through Special Olympics Michigan I would not be the man I am today, and I would not be the teacher I hope to become.
