This January, Milton Academy’s community service program hosted more than 100 athletes from the Greater Boston area competing in the annual Special Olympics Basketball Invitational Tournament. Leading up to the event, Milton students volunteered their time each Sunday afternoon to coach one of the fifteen teams. At the tournament, Upper and Middle School students managed the opening ceremony, anthem and Special Olympics oaths; served as referees and time keepers; and presented awards during the closing ceremony. Lower School students and their families made signs, cheered the teams and assembled lunches for the players. In May, the Special Olympics will return to Milton when the community service program hosts the Track and Field qualifier.
