ALTOONA, Pa., 2017-Jun-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — Today (June 7, 2017) Sheetz, one of America’s fastest-growing family-owned and operated convenience retailers for more than 65 years, is proud to announce Sebastian Joynes as the 2017 Sheetz Family Award of Excellence winner. Awarded Saturday, June 3, during the closing ceremonies of the Special Olympics Pennsylvania Summer Games, Joynes was honored due to his distinguished sportsmanship and perseverance throughout the Games.

Joynes, a 21 year old from Area M, consistently encourages and inspires his fellow athletes and coaches. During a relay event at the Games, after a member of Joynes’ team ran before receiving the baton, Joynes lifted up his teammate saying, “It’s okay, we can do this relay again next year.” Additionally, despite being sick, Joynes competed in the 200 meter race, earning a 7th place ribbon.

The Sheetz Family Award of Excellence was created to capture the great sporting moments that distinguish the athletes at the Summer Games. The award recognizes the athlete whose determination and effort can only be understood by the power of the human spirit to overcome obstacles and inspire greatness. It distinguishes athletes who may not win, but whose courage, sportsmanship, effort and determination is award-winning.

“We are pleased that Sebastian received this year’s coveted Sheetz Family Award,” said Nicole Jones, Special Olympics Pennsylvania’s Senior Director of Marketing and Communications. “He has clearly demonstrated our athlete oath, ‘Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.’ ”

“In our 25th year as a proud sponsor of the 2017 Special Olympics Pennsylvania Summer Games, we couldn’t be more honored to present the Sheetz Family Award of Excellence to Sebastian Joynes, an athlete who inspires greatness in all of us,” said Sheetz Vice President of Human Resources Stephanie Doliveira, who presented the award. “At Sheetz we are deeply committed to supporting the communities we serve. We are proud to stand beside our partners at the Special Olympics as they continue to transform lives through the joy of sport, teamwork and friendship.”

The winner of the Sheetz Family Award of Excellence was selected by a team of Sheetz employees from applications submitted by delegation leaders and coaches.  All nominees remained anonymous during the selection process.

On Thursday, June 1, Emily Sheetz Mandel, representing Sheetz, ran with the torch in the Special Olympics Torch Run, which kicks off the Pennsylvania Summer Games. Sheetz also participated in the Summer Games with over 100 Sheetz employees volunteering their time and through the donation of more than 4,750 meals including 6″ subs, fruit and water for Olympians in addition to a prize wheel and free beverages for athletes at the Olympic Village.
