Tryon Elementary’s Unified Champions appear in town Christmas parade

Tryon Elementary’s Unified Champions and several Special Olympic athletes participated in the recent Tryon Christmas Parade.

Special Olympics Unified Champion Schools (formerly known as Project UNIFY Schools) bring youth with and without intellectual disabilities together through sports and education to create school communities of acceptance and respect.

Unified Champion Schools are seen through every level of education (Pre-K/Head Start through college) and are driven by youth and staff leaders.
