FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Robin Falcon is a key volunteer that wears many hats in our organization whether she’s staging, helping with awards or registration. She always there to help with whatever may be needed. We can always count on her help at all our competitions because she is readily available to give of her time.
Her role of volunteer extends beyond the competitions, she servers as our ALPs coordinator and has gone through the POC trainers training. Plus, she also attends and assists the trainers at all our sports specific training schools and face-to- face at our Area Conference.
Robin has been around SOTX since was 3 years old with her mother, Celin Falcon, who so happens to be the Head of Delegation. She was the Rio Grande Valley’s first Junior Coach. She felt very proud when she received her first SIG so much that she was clutching it on the way home. Her mother asked her why she was holding it like that; her response was "mom I have my own now, for years I have seen you carry and use yours. I knew that binder was something very special and now I have one."
It’s with great pleasure to honor Robin as our volunteer spotlight and thank her for all her hard work and tireless energy she has given to Special Olympics Texas athletes.
