If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? Phase 2.3 has been one of the most rewarding projects I have been involved with. Phase 2.3 is where Neenah High School's Special Olympics basketball team plays a game against a team of teachers at our school. This year, I was able to be help plan the event and just seeing the excitement of all of the Special Olympians makes the whole night even better.
