Merakey AVS Pittsburgh Campus Happenings
On February 15, a Valentine’s Day dance was held at the Merakey AVS Pittsburgh Campus Gymnasium. Everyone danced the day away and participated in games like “pin the lips on cupid” and “land the Hershey’s kiss on the box of chocolates.” Attendees made beautiful Valentine’s Day boxes that were put on display, and voted on during the dance. The winning box was the popcorn machine created by the group from Building 1B. We are grateful to everyone who took the time to make boxes!
Under the coaching of Lisa Livengood and Savannah Strickland, three individuals from Merakey AVS participated in a Special Olympics 3 vs. 3 basketball tournament held at the University of Pittsburgh on March 10. This was the first time that Sharon, Donald and Shequala participated in the tournament. The team practiced for 6 weeks and through the hard work and determination of the individuals and coaches, the team took gold in their division. Congratulations to Sharon, Don, Shequala, Lisa, and Savannah!
