Reno participates in Central event

Thursday, April 19, 2001

Julie Reno, daughter of Bob and Pat Reno of Sioux Rapids and a junior at Central College in Pella, took part in "Celebrating Spring at Central."

This collaborative mini-olympics project for area preschool students was held at Central's Kuyper Fieldhouse on Monday, April 9.

Reno is an elementary education major at Central and a graduate of Sioux Central High School.

The mini-olympics event, which was sponsored by Central College and Heartland Area Education 11, drew preschool students from Carlisle, Indianola, Knoxville, Newton, Pella, Pleasantville and Melcher-Dallas preschools. It was an opportunity for these preschoolers to be involved in a variety of student-designed activities in a non-competitive atmosphere.

"Mini-olympics is an exciting event for both the invited preschool students, many of whom have a disability, and for the participating Central College students," said Dr. Esther Roth, assistant professor of education in teacher preparation at Central.
