For my loved one dwells with Thee.

This July in New Orleans, Brenda Langford will be racing for
the gold in an international competition of strength,
courage, and determination. Brenda may not be AHS's
leading runner, in fact she can't even walk, but her
strength, courage, and determination rank her with the
world's best athletes. She is confined to a wheel chair by a
common disorder shared with over a half million citizens in
the United States. Cerebral Palsy is a disorder where muscu-
lar control and coordination are impaired due to brain dam-
age, but Brenda has not let her handicap impair her com-
petitive nature. For the past two years she has been com-
peting in the Special Olympics.
The Special Olympics started in 4968 as a program of
sports training and athletic competition for handicapped
individuals, and since then it has grown into an international
program with over one million participants in AO countries.
The athletes train and compete in 45 different Olympic
type sports including skiing, wrestling, bowling, mountain
climbing, diving, and football playing.
Brenda began participating in Special Olympics three
years ago and qualified for track and field competition with
times received in State Special Olympics last May. The
Student Council is sponsoring Brenda with a S200 scholarship
to get her to the International Special Olympics. Brenda is
coached by Jean Sutton.
