People of UCCS: Talisha, Sarah, and LaRhonda

“To highlight inclusion via Special Olympics is simply an opportunity to tell the world that we all matter.” —LaRhonda McCann, Educator (Detroit, MI)

The Unified Champion City Schools (UCCS) initiative is a targeted program bringing together students with and without intellectual disabilities in urban school districts with the highest need. In People of UCCS, we spotlight exceptional educators at the forefront of these programs.

Talisha, Sarah, and LaRhonda are educators from Detroit, Michigan, who have seen firsthand the transformational power of inclusion. Watch as they discuss how UCCS has encouraged them to say “yes” to inclusion and how the initiative has positively impacted their students and peers.
