Project UNIFY – Meet in the Middle (MiM) students from Rider High School in Wichita Falls will participate in the Texas Association of Student Councils (TASC) High School Conference in Arlington this weekend. MiM students will join more than 4,500 student council leaders from more than 400 Texas high schools to celebrate their accomplishments, attend information sessions, participate in leadership activities and get informed about opportunities for local service.  The MiM leaders will provide an opportunity to take the pledge against the R-word (retarded), as well as host a bocce demonstration so that attendees can learn the game and even battle it out on the bocce court. 

The TASC conference is from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on April 1 at the Arlington Convention Center, located at 1200 Ballpark Way.   This is the first year MiM students will host an exhibit at the convention.  The display will include photos and videos of Rider High School's MiM activities, SOTX giveaway items and information about Unified Sports.

Project UNIFY - Meet in the Middle (MiM) is an education-based program that promotes acceptance, inclusion and respect between students with and without intellectual disabilities in Texas schools. The program is currently active on 130 campuses across the state.   To learn more, visit www.mimtexas.org, www.specialolympicstexas.org or call 800.876.5646.  Engage with us on: Twitter @SOTexas; facebook.com/sotxmim; and  youtube.com/specialolympicstexas.
