Olympic memories


Indian Lake Elementary kindergarten mothers Jamie Ross, left, and Colleen Bodin spent time Friday sharing with Jodi Carder’s class about their Olympic Torch Relay experiences, as they both were torchbearers for the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. The opening ceremony for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics also was broadcast on Friday. On Jan. 3, 2002, Mrs. Ross carried the torch in Lima, while Mrs. Bodin carried it through downtown Dayton. They shared with the kindergartners various details about carrying the torch and showed students their torchbearer outfits and the route the torch was carried. Each student also had the chance to hold the torches. Mrs. Bodin, a guidance counselor at Indian Lake High School, shared her experience with students at the high school earlier in the week.
