I am very grateful to the Rocket Special Olympic Team, in Hazlet. The group honored myself and Courier Associate editor Christopher Blaszczyk on Tuesday with plaques at The Courier, in Middletown.
It is very humbling to be recognized by this group of very gifted and dedicated athletes, who have represented Hazlet and this area so incredibly in competition. I have not seen a group of athletes so committed to the best parts of sport, nor people so driven to address challenges straight on.
I thank them very much and look forward to having the opportunity to see their many successes of the future. Click on the headline to go to Alyssa Passeggio's "Just the News" for the photo and story.
