UPDATE: We’ve added photos that Sapulpa Public Schools shared from their Facebook Page, see the bottom of the post.
Every year, Sapulpa’s group of Special Olympians head out to their activities to represent their school and compete. And every year, students will pile into the hallways as these students are making their way out the door. They call it the “Parade of Champions”
Tomorrow is the annual PARADE of CHAMPIONS. Everyone be in the hallways at 8:05am to cheer on our Special Olympians. #ChieftainStrong

In this short but heartwarming video, Sapulpa students and faculty line the halls on either side as far as the camera lens can see, and cheer, clap and hurrah for their peers heading to the competition. The Special Olympics team take it all in with the pride and satisfaction that any other athlete would get from such praise. In a world where handicapped teenagers are often jeered and ignored, Sapulpa Chieftains remind us all what’s really important.
