Friday night I witnessed a powerful event at the North Oldham High School basketball game. The manager of their team has been with them for six years. Tee Salinas is now a senior. Tee, who has Down syndrome, takes pride in all his duties involved in managing the team. To Tee the basketball team is an extended family.
His coach Chris Stobaugh is quoted as saying “he is one of us.” Tee is included, accepted and very comfortable in being a member of the team.
