On Saturday, Aug. 8, we dedicated the gymnasium at Margaret B. Rost School as the "Mike Fairbanks Memorial Gym." Mike was an outstanding basketball player, and first got involved with Special Olympics Hamilton County at the Rost gymnasium in 1985. 

Over the years, he helped win multiple championships at the Special Olympics state games, participated in the Special Olympics international games, and competed successfully in Unified Special Olympics basketball.

Mike was a dedicated employee of HCDDS for more than 20 years and passed away earlier this year. He worked as a custodial aide at both Franks Adult Center and Margaret B. Rost School.

Thank you to everyone who came out for the dedication ceremony. See pictures on the Rost Facebook page
