Three employees volunteer at 2023 Special Olympics Summer Games

Volunteers from 23 Oklahoma electric co-ops came together in Stillwater in May to assist with the Special Olympics Summer Games. Three employees represented OEC among the record 150 co-op volunteers in Stillwater.

Network Technician III Nick Moyer, Copywriter Erin McKnight and Member Service Associate Rosa Baringer joined other co-op employees and family members as they assisted with track and field events.

Four thousand athletes from across the state participated in the Summer Games. During the three-day event, athletes competed in track and field, bocce, bowling, golf, horseshoes, powerlifting, basketball and softball.

“This was by far the most rewarding experience of my life, especially now that I have a kiddo of my own,” said McKnight. “Seeing the joy on these athletes’ faces and having the opportunity to celebrate with them has changed me for the better.”

Barringer echoed her comments. “It was a humbling and inspiring experience to watch the athletes compete with such joy! I would recommend that everyone volunteer if they get the chance.”

In addition to OEC’s volunteers, the OEC Foundation, Inc. via the Operation Round Up® program donates funds to area Special Olympics teams each year. That funding is made possible by members who round up their monthly electric bills to the nearest dollar.

“Volunteering for Special Olympics is a humbling experience. I am so proud of these young people and their tenacity to overcome their obstacles and win,” said Moyer. “Each participant touched my heart. The high fives were endless, and the smiles and hugs were priceless. I will treasure each minute.”
