Westmont College is fast becoming a home to all types of special athletes.
Earlier this year, Westmont hosted some of the world’s top track and field athletes, including US Olympic decathlon gold medalist Ashton Eaton. In July, 2015, the college in the hills of Montecito will host 100 international Special Olympics athletes in the region for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games.
“This is a perfect fit for Westmont College,” Westmont president Dr. Gayle Beebe said at a press conference announcing Santa Barbara as a host city for the World Games on the college’s picturesque Kerrwood Lawn. “It so reflects who we are and who we want to be.” more
