Sadly, on December 10th the Steelwheelers lost basketball team member Shawn Smith.  Even though He was just getting started in his Steelwheeler career he made a huge impact.  From the first time everyone met him it was an instant family bond.  Shawn was always so positive and passionate at anything he put his mind to.  He kept the team working hard, made us laugh and have a great time when we were all together and was a true peer mentor with helping those when they are down. We all loved our time with him. Our brother, teammate, and friend will be deeply missed.  Shawn left behind 3 young children.

The 21st President's Challenge will be held on October 2, 2021.
