Randolph County

Welcome to Special Olympics Randolph County!

I am extremely excited to announce a great new Leadership Team that we have in Randolph County! We have two new Local Coordinator’s that have been active in the program for many years.

Please join me in welcoming Shawn Columbia and Jonathan Sermon as the new Local Coordinators of Randolph County.  Shawn is the Aquatics and Competitive Swim Director at the Randolph-Asheboro YMCA.  He has been on the local committee for over 20 years with serving in a Games Management role as well.

Jonathan Sermon is the Program Coordinator/Assistant Director/Superintendent for the City of Asheboro Cultural &Recreation Services. He has also been on the committee for 20 years with serving as Games Management and facilities support.

They have both agreed to serve as Local Coordinator’s since they work so well as a team with currently offering local Special Olympics events in bowling, aquatics, basketball and Spring games.  This is such a great partnership between the YMCA and the Parks and Recreation! Shawn and Jonathan are extremely excited about this opportunity and look forward to building and expanding the local program in Randolph County.
