Success Story: Special Olympics
David Sargent was the 2012 Outstanding Athlete of the year for Special Olympics Missouri. In addition to competing in bowling, golf, and basketball with SOMO, David (Davo) has been an Area Office intern for over a year, assisting with weekly tasks such as shredding, filing, equipment loading for events, and spreadsheet updates. He is very generous with his free time, volunteering with multiple organizations around the St. Louis area. Davo even took on the planning and creation of a haunted house at St. Louis Life for community members to enjoy, with the funds going back to benefit St. Louis Life. Davo enjoys the competitive side of SOMO sports, and though he does not have family residing around St. Louis, they always come to events to cheer him on.
