Graduates live full and successful lives

Mike Herd and Matthew Gibbon are separated by both years and miles.

But they share a common success story. They are both graduates of Madonna School in Omaha.

And both Herd and Gibbon agree they might not be where they are today if not for the education and skills they received at Madonna School in Omaha.

Herd, who has speech and learning disabilities, and Gibbon, who has Down syndrome, have lived full and successful lives despite their disabilities.

Madonna team places third at national Special Olympics

Although Madonna School in Omaha participates regularly in the local, state and regional Special Olympics competitions, this year's national Special Olympics competition was extra special for the girls' basketball team.

The Madonna School Mustangs defeated Team Illinois for the bronze medal at the 2010 National Special Olympics in Lincoln July 23.

The Madonna team won the Nebraska state championship in March 2009 to qualify for the national competition.

History of Madonna School

Founded in 1960 when Sister of Mercy Evangeline Randolph began educating two orphans who could not pass requirements for admission to the regular Catholic schools.

Word spread fast and soon Sister Evangeline had 25 students at the "Omaha Archdiocesan School for Exceptional Children."
