“I love my community. There’s no secret there. I’m blessed to work side by side with the best department. I appreciate SOTX athletes and families for sticking with us side by side.” - Chief Scesney
Of working with SOTX, Adkins said, “Special Olympics has become so personal. My son participates, and it’s starting to become a generational thing. I get so much encouragement, it motivates me to do more.”
Athletes, “This is going to pass, and we are going to get back to normal. We all look forward to the day when we can get together. After a day of spending time with the you all, officers come back with smiles on their faces and more relaxed than before,” Salvaggio explains.
Office SIsk is heavily involved with LETR and the Special Olympics. “I have more LETR shirts than I know how to count. It’s kind of a tradition to wear the one with the big Texas flag when I go out to conferences. It’s a conversation starter. When I retire I’m going to learn how to sow and make a blanket out of them,” Sisk claimed.
We got a chance to catch up with Commander Mirabelle of the Pflugerville PD! According to Mirabelle, “The pairing between Special Olympics athletes and officers is special because we see so much negativity on a day to day basis, but when we hang out with our athletes, they make us smile, they see all of the good in the world, and they turn our day around."
SOTX Boots and Hats Day was held on July 28, supporting the Paper Torch Campaign at Cavender's stores around the state of Texas.
