Leah Scheible, a rising junior at Fort Pierce Central High School, was recognized at the August SLPS Board Meeting because she made a big splash at this year’s Special Olympics 2018 USA Games held in Seattle, Washington.
As one of Florida’s 7-member swim team delegation, Leah took twin silvers in her individual 200 freestyle event and 4X50 freestyle relay, and she scooped a fourth-place finish in her individual 100 freestyle event.
Leah’s swim coach, Heather Gray, who accompanied Leah to the Board meeting, describes her as an outstanding athlete.
Leah participates in swim, track, basketball and cheerleading for St. Lucie County’s Special Olympics. She is equally active on Fort Pierce Central High School’s campus, participating as a varsity athlete on the school’s swim team and track team. She also plays junior varsity ladies basketball.
