Indian Lake Elementary kindergarten moms Jamie Ross and Colleen Bodin spent time on Friday sharing with Mrs. Carder's class their Olympic Torch Relay experience.
Ross and Bodin were torchbearers for the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. On January 3, 2002, Jamie carried the torch in Lima while Colleen carried it through downtown Dayton. They shared with the kindergartners details about carrying the torch, showed the route the torch was carried along with the torchbearer outfit, and even allowed each student to hold the torch.
The students had several questions about being a torchbearer and the Olympics. Mrs. Bodin, a guidance counselor at the high school, also shared her experience with students at ILHS earlier in the week.
