Sylvia Turner Throws Out First Pitch
Sylvia Turner, director, adult education, threw out the first pitch during the Ridge Area ARC’s Special STARS Softball Classic on March 24. The annual tournament helps raise funds for the various activities Special STARS participates in throughout the year. “SFCC works closely with the Ridge Area ARC, offering nursery operations and environmental services programs to many of its clients, and many are hired after they’ve completed the programs,” said Turner. “We’re also a major sponsor of the tournament and are happy to support them in any way we can.”
The Special STARS program offers 13 different sports and six recreational activities throughout the year to more than 250 children and adults with mental and physical disabilities in Highlands County.
