North Branford Trio Honored for Contributions to Unified Sports
On April 25, two North Branford High School (NBHS) and a staff member were recognized during the annual Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) Unified Sports Banquet held at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington.
Unified Sports are sponsored by many schools throughout the state of Connecticut and work in collaboration with the CIAC and Special Olympics. The Unified Sports programs partner students and teams, allowing students to participate in school-based events during the school year and to compete against other Unified Sports teams from neighboring schools.
NBHS juniors Alexander Huisman and Cecelia D’Amico attended this year’s festive Unified Sports ceremony with their families and school administrators. NBHS coach Diane Artaiz was also on hand and was recognized for her 15 years of dedicated service in the role of a Unified Sports coach.
