JACKSON, Tenn. — Wednesday was a special day for some students from nearby schools. Special needs students were treated with the annual Champions Day at Jackson Fairgrounds Park. The event, sponsored by the local Boy Scout council, is for all special needs students from Madison, Haywood and Crockett counties, according to Boy Scouts officials. Champions Day is an opportunity for the students, known as Learning for Life Champions, to have fun, enjoy carnival games and interact with emergency agencies including police, EMS, firefighters, Air Evac and wildlife agencies. The event has been held annually for more than 15 years and is a collaboration of the West Tennessee Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, local school systems and volunteer support from Sacred Heart of Jesus High School.
