Mrs. Treasure Valley Sonya Hoadley attends Special Olypics Festivities

Mrs. Treasure Valley Sonya Hoadley attended the Special Olympic Winter Games Festivities. Here is what Sonya had to say: My sister, mother, nephew, and I were so blessed by our visit to the Special Olympics playground! We mingled with athletes and fans and even recorded a video to show our support of all of the amazing athletes. The Special Olympics were founded in 1968 by J.F.K.'s sister and were modeled after the World Olympics. These games are just one more example of how setting a goal and working hard for it can stretch you beyond your wildest dreams. The Special Olympics now serve more than 1 million athletes in over 140 countries! Learn more at their official website: Thanks to everyone who has shown their love and support of this great event. Yet another reason I am SO PROUD to call the amazing state of IDAHO my home!

Sonya Hoadley Mrs. Treasure Valley - Impacting Treasure Valley Kids

Mrs. Treasure Valley Sonya Hoadley has been having a blast working with a group of Caldwell kids on goal-setting. Some of them aspire to be mothers and fathers, teachers, doctors, and one boy is SURE he is going to be President! She has been working with them to start discovering what a goal is and how to pick an appropriate goal. The kids then chose their own goals and made a collage to represent what they are working towards. We can't wait to see them reach for the stars!

Mrs. Treasure Valley Sonya Hoadley and her husband Joey are mentors for CFES (College for Every Student) again this year. We met with our mentees to work on goal-setting and encourage them in their college-bound planning. Hope all is well and look forward to seeing you soon!
