Buddy Ball Praises OCHS Students

Hi OCHS Family,

My name is Billy Shain, President of Two Rivers Buddy Ball. First let me start out with a huge THANK YOU for allowing our special needs program use your facilities again this year. This season, it rained every Monday we were scheduled for soccer. We were so grateful we were able to use a gym instead of having to call off each of those days. Consistency is a big deal for special needs kids.

Next, let me say a few things about Coach Andy and the kids that volunteer from OCHS. Andy is great with the special needs kids. He has a way of asking the kids to do things that are totally out of their comfort zone and this allows them to open up to the ability to enjoy soccer. He is always ready with a smile and makes sure that the kids have fun while learning.

The students at OCHS are unlike most kids I see. I drive a school bus for Daviess County and wish all the students at county schools would show the same compassion, leadership and love for others that your students do. Part of that comes from their parents, and the rest of it is because of the staff and leaders you have there at OCHS. They mirror what they are taught. Our program may have success, but it is only as strong as the ones that play the pivotal part of being in the foreground- OCHS, Andy and the kids at OCHS. Thank you for another great spring soccer session.

God Bless

Billy Shain
