Senior Garrett Jenkins celebrates a win.

The annual Olympics were held Friday at Pelham Memorial High School after the event was renamed by the student association to the Charlie Wilson Olympics in memory of the late Dr. Charles Wilson, who worked in the school district starting in 1968, served as superintendent from 1996 until his retirement in 2008 and created the Olympics. Wilson died April 23.

A banner made by all four grades was paraded around the field during the opening ceremony in his honor. The event was held almost fully outdoors and grades showed up Friday morning decked out in orange, royal blue, red and light blue attire. Themes included the Flintstone Freshmen, Seaside Sophomores, Julius Caesar Juniors and Seventies Seniors. The senior class took home the gold, winning by over 100 points.
