Special Olympics Texas would like to spotlight Mrs. Beth Marmion.  Beth is a Special Olympics Texas – Area 20 Coach. She is also on the administrative staff at Cornerstone Christian Schools.  Because of Beth, Area 20 was able to host our 2018 Basketball Competition at Cornerstone Christian Schools.  For 3 days, March 1-3, 2018, Beth ensured that Area 20 athletes felt at home on the campus.  She provided over 70 student volunteers as well as parent volunteers.  She approached the Administrators at Cornerstone encouraging them to donate the facilities for this event.  We thank you Beth, for helping Special Olympics Texas make a difference in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.
