Proceeds from the Chili Cook-off provided a second bicycle and helmet to the Stevens Intermediate school  “Pedals for Progress” program.

Staci Roesel, the Special Education Administrator for Wilmington School District wrote the following letter about the young winner and the day he was presented with his new bike:

Hello Wilmington Mason Secretary and Members,
Today was a very exciting day for us in the Wilmington Special Education Department, as well as for the entire Stevens Intermediate School! Because of your generosity a young man feels like his hard work has paid off and that there are people in our community that care about his reading progress, but even more than that, care about him! After you left I heard him tell his teacher, “I have never gotten such a nice gift in all my life!”  “That was really nice of those people.” My staff, myself included, had tear-filled eyes as we gathered later to talk about the joy you have brought to him. This is something that he will never forget, nor the special education department as a whole. Thank you so much!
Thank you again,
Staci Roesel
Special Education Administrator for Wilmington School District
