Washington Center students, families and staff celebrated the annual Challenge Day Sept. 28, on the Bob Jones University campus. 

 Challenge Day is the Special Olympics Developmental Games designed specifically for Washington Center’s students. The Greenville County Recreation Department helps to coordinate and sponsor the event along with community support.  Washington Center Adaptive P.E. instructor, Cindy Brown, coordinates the program for the school.

 The "Parade of Athletes" opened the event, welcomed by Bob Jones University President Dr. Stephen Jones, followed by developmental athletic events and the carnival town game fun. 
Washington Center students participated in the opening ceremonies: Jacob Ashmore led the Pledge of Allegiance, Ahnalliyah Wright repeated the Special Olympic Oath followed by the Passing of the Flame of Hope by Torchbearers Sara Allen, Taylor Smittle and Charles Merritt. 

Closing the event, the Awarding of Olympic Medals Ceremony applauded each student’s abilities and accomplishments.
