Bittersweet victories at the Special Olympics

Two participants from the Bittersweet Farms program in Whitehouse made waves at the first ever Special Olympics Ohio Winter Games held in Bowling Green. Beth Meier, a state-level swimmer and skier, won one gold medal and two bronze medals as part of the Games’ swimming events. Matt Pierson, a member of the Lucas County D4 basketball team, earned a bronze medal for his team’s efforts in the State basketball tournament. Beth and Matt both are part of the Bittersweet Farms community which provides individuals on the autism spectrum a chance to work in an agricultural environment.
