Hollis is named a Special Olympics Unified Champion School
In December of 2020, Hollis was named a Special Olympics Unified Champion School, much to the credit of Yori Battle, MS MOID Teacher. Thanks to her efforts, the Department of Special Education at Hollis received a $500 grant to support 2020 Inclusive Schools Week festivities.

Today, Special Olympics serves as a driving force for social inclusion, with the vision to create a world where “people with intellectual disabilities of all abilities are welcomed in their communities and join with others to learn, work, compete and play with the same rights and opportunities as others.” - Special Olympics
