Mena High and Mena Middle School has been active for the last three years in “Project Unify,” a program that promotes school communities where young people are “agents of change­­” fostering acceptance, respect, dignity and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities and anyone who is perceived as different.
Mena hosted the first “Battle of the Ouachitas” in basketball and Mena defeated Hot Springs Lakeside 18-14, bringing home the traveling trophy for the year.
Project Unify integrates Special Olympics programs with ongoing youth activities and focuses on creating and sustaining education systems, classroom practices, school climate, and community engagement.
