Las Vegas, Nevada is known to many as “Sin City.” But Donna Cowart wasn’t in Vegas this past February to gamble or enjoy any of the city’s other infamous pleasures. Donna, one of Phoenix’s HR specialists, was there to support the Special Olympics.
Donna has been a Special Olympics volunteer for 10 years. She learned about the opportunity when she found a flyer in her Phoenix mail box. Since then, Donna has volunteered at local events as well as the Alabama State Games conducted by the Alabama Sports Festival Foundation.
But the Vegas trip was all about bowling for Donna and her Special Olympic partner Jeanne Case. “I thought it sounded like fun,” Donna said. “So I went.”
It was more than fun. Donna and Jeanne’s team won several medals. Phoenix congratulates Donna and thanks her for volunteering with Special Olympics. She truly is rising above and going beyond!
