Meeting Eunice in 1999

By Julia Scott

Eunice asking me questions about my thoughts on Special Olympics.

I had the privilege of meeting Eunice when I took 4 athletes to JCPenney corporate office in Dallas where she was receiving an award in 1999. Her interaction with the athletes was awesome to see first hand. She asked me various questions about my involvement in Special Olympics and I was so in awe of meeting her I had trouble thinking straight enough to get sensible answers out - but I did. She was an amazing woman.

About Julia Scott: I have been involved in Special Olympics for 29 years. I am on the Area SMT, a Key volunteer for Area & State & Head of Delegation for a local team.
