Senior Stories: Joe Carr

Joe Carr has been a bright spot in our Richfield community for years. As he graduates this year, he is looking forward to attending Transition Plus at the South Education Center, where he will explore career and other post-secondary options. His dream job is to be a sports play-by-play announcer and if he could meet anyone, it would be Jason Benetti, a Chicago White Sox play-by-play announcer who also has cerebral palsy.

Joe stays busy outside of school, taking part in adaptive floor hockey, soccer, softball, horseback riding and downhill skiing. He also hosts an annual lemonade stand to raise money for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. Last year, during his fifth annual lemonade stand, Joe raised over $10,725 to help with their adaptive bike program.

“Joe has so much Spartan pride, and always has a smile on his face. I love seeing him at different events, and he always gives me the warmest greetings,” says teacher Laurie Siebert. “Joe is such an asset to the Spartan community!”

Joe loved his Unified PE classes at RHS, because he gets “to go on my bike and my gait trainer. I get to be with my friends and meet new friends in Unified PE.” He also loved all the adaptive sports he took part in. “I loved playing adaptive sports and having the football team, wrestling team, basketball team, former paras and teachers, neighbors and friends come out to watch us play.” 

Coach Omar McMillan made the greatest impact on Joe’s high school experience: “As a Coach—He included me on all of the boys basketball team events and made me a part of the team. I will always remember the last two years.”

Joe’s advice to freshmen? “Try new activities or sports to meet new friends. Try your hardest and ask for help if you need it.” When asked his favorite thing about school, Joe said simply: “I like everything.”
