Volunteer Spotlight - Dr. Randel D. Brown


Dr. Randel D. Brown, Associate Professor/Interim Chair/Director Special Education at Texas A&M International University, has served as a volunteer with Special Olympics Texas in Laredo since 1998. Dr. Brown first started assisting as a committee member for Roundball on the Rio and later began recruiting students from the university to volunteer and get involved.

Dr. Brown has instilled in his university and students the value of helping others to such degree that his students are now participating in fundraising for Special Olympics Texas through our annual Polar Plunge. The students’ attitude and their presence at all Special Olympics Texas events and competitions add to the beauty of seeing the athletes rejoice in their individual accomplishments. 

Dr. Brown’s commitment and to Special Olympics Texas is something that is evident every competition and we continue to thank him for his dedication to our organization.
