Meet your 2019 Athlete Convoy Marshal, Luke Smith!
We are pleased to announce the 2019 Athlete Truck Convoy Marshal, Luke Smith. Luke is 16 years old and has been a part of Special Olympics Manitowoc County Miracles for almost 3 years. He plays many sports including basketball, track, softball, flag football and bowling. He is described by his coaches as having “good sportsmanship with other teams and players. He’s competitive at sports and wants to be his best, not only for himself but for his team.”
Ultimately, Luke wants to be his best for Special Olympics Wisconsin athletes. Luke is part of the Athlete Input Council—a group of athlete representatives working together to give back and be the voice of all athletes at Special Olympics Wisconsin. He also serves as a Healthy Athlete Leader to help spread awareness to other athletes and coaches about the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle and its impacts on performance in sports. His next goal is to help make his school into a Unified Champion School so that his school has full inclusion of all.
It is very apparent that Luke lives by his favorite quote each and every day—“We are not on this earth to see how important we become, but how much difference we can make in the lives of others.”
We are so excited for you to meet Luke at the Truck Convoy. We thank you for making a difference in Luke’s life and the lives of 10,000 athletes across the state through your participation in the Truck Convoy!
