#UnifiedGeneration Review:

“Eddie Yarbrough played football at Grandview High School in Aurora, Colorado. He was one of the first Unified partners at Grandview.  Eddie loved the inclusion that Unified offered. Today, Eddie is a Defensive End for the Minnesota Vikings. He also serves as a Champion Ambassador for Special Olympics. The values of perseverance and hard work that Eddie mentions made me think about the definition of “success” that Special Olympics emphasizes.” – Ilana Drake, UCS Correspondent (New York)
