Leadership In Service

Faith In Action

Giving of ourselves

Twice a year, Lutheran South students serve those in need by hosting Special Olympics events for children in St. Louis area special schools.

Nearly 200 children are paired with Lutheran South "buddies" who are their leaders, cheerleaders and helpers throughout the track meet day. The young athletes enjoy track events according to their abilities, striving to use their gifts and be their best. 

In between events, the athletes enjoy lunch and the activities of Lutheran South's own "Olympic Village" with carnival games, facepainting booths, a visit with local firemen in their fire truck, crafts and fun!

At the end of the day, Lutheran South students and their special athletes are all smiles, each learning from each other, and sharing in God's blessings of friendship and caring.

Special Olympics is just one way Lutheran South students, faculty and staff share the love of Christ and his example of serving others.


The Christo Servus (You Serve Christ) Award recognizes students who are making a significant contribution in their service and dedication to Lutheran South and beyond.
