On Friday, Sept. 23, education students in EDC 300: Introduction to Exceptionalities at Lake Erie College traveled to Broadmoor School in Mentor to take on the Broadmoor Bobcats in a friendly game of basketball. Broadmoor, a school for students with special needs, is incredibly proud of their basketball team’s performance each year.
Though the students from LEC put up a good fight, the Bobcats came out on top, maintaining their undefeated record. An LEC jersey hangs on the wall of Broadmoor’s gymnasium among the jerseys of other local high schools and colleges whose students have experienced defeat against the Bobcats.
During their visit, the future teachers from LEC not only had the opportunity to play basketball with Broadmoor students who have developmental disabilities, but they were also given a tour of the school and learned more about various services for students with special needs.
Broadmoor School is a part of the Lake County Board of Developmental Disabilities, an organization working to advance public awareness of and assistance for individuals with developmental disabilities. More information can be found at http://www.lakebdd.org/services/broadmoor-school.html.
The tradition of taking LEC education students to play the Broadmoor Bobcats in basketball was established by Dr. Katie Krammer, associate professor of special education.
