The Olean Common Council issued a special proclamation at its April 26 meeting to recognize the annual Special Olympics Unified Basketball Competition at St. Bonaventure University, held this year on April 27. Mayor Bill Aiello was so impressed after attending the event in 2015 that he wanted to officially honor those who make the event possible. Pictured in the back row with the mayor (far left) are Marcie Richmond, director of Special Education for Olean City Schools; Angela Mest, special education teacher for OCSD; Jeff Capitani of Directions in Independent Living; Neal Johnson, president and CEO of Special Olympics New York; and Joseph Zimmer, provost and vice president for academic affairs at St. Bonaventure. Students pictured in the front row are (from left) Jazlyn Knapp, Jake Meister, Stella Gonzalez and Megan Pockalny.
