A true champion

Tammy Annette Clark, 45, of Salem, presses toward the finish line in her wheelchair Saturday at East Liverpool High School’s Frank J. Mangano Track during the 44th annual Special Olympics. Offering her a water bottle is her caregiver Jannelle Hazel. Clark was participating in the 100-meter wheelchair race and finished with a time of 3 minutes, 11 seconds. The daylong event for Columbiana County Special Olympics, Area 11, was organized by the Beacon Association, a volunteer service organization. Participating schools were Ashtabula, Columbiana, Fairhaven, Mahoning County MR/DD, Mahoning County Public and Youngstown Development Center. (Salem News photo by Stephen Huba)
