KENNESAW — Kennesaw State University student athletes will get a chance to showcase their non-athletic talents in the Student Athlete Talent Show benefitting The Golden Soldiers — a nonprofit organization that provides year-round sports and other recreational opportunities for both children and adults with disabilities. KSU Athletic Director Vaughn Williams and Golden Soldiers founder Lindsey Turner will co-emcee the event with special-guest host Madison Montour, a 9-year-old third-grader with spina bifida, and guest judge Cameron Ulrich, a 17-year-old, Allatoona High School student with cerebral palsy. The talent show will be Monday at 7 p.m. at Kennesaw State University Convocation Center. Tickets are $3 for students, faculty and staff and $5 for everyone else. For more information, visit thegoldensoldiers .org and click on the events tab, or send an email to info@thegolden soldiers.org. Jay Ulrich, Cameron’s father, said Cameron is looking forward to being a part of this event to support The Golden Soldiers “and to raise awareness that special needs kids are people, too.” “Madison and I are beyond excited for her to participate in the KSU Talent Show,” said Jess Montour, Madison’s mother. “We love having the opportunity to have new experiences like this. Madison loves to meet new people.” The Golden Soldiers Inc. is a faith-based, nonprofit focused on spreading the Golden Rule by providing year-round events, activities and services for families and individuals with developmental disabilities.
