CHICO, Calif. -- Pleasant Valley High School hosted and event called "We Not Me" today. The event recognizes, highlights and celebrates those in the special needs program at PV.

The student body, boys basketball team, cheer team, and parents gathered at Varley Gym to watch students participate in dunk/shooting drills before an exhibition game.

It was a day filled with cheers from the crowd. The atmosphere was wild, and a bit overwhelming for some.

Head Coach Tim Keating says, "Today I was blown away. I mean almost emotional just watching how much they cared about the kids and you just saw a side of kids that you're like 'oh my god that's so cool."

For those that participated, especially for the first time, it left quite an impression. Sacha Williams says, "...it felt amazing like i've never been to something like this and it felt great."

Memebers of the basketball team assisted the participants throughout the entire event. For them, getting the chance to impact others, was rewarding.

Sophmore Chase Mitchell is one of them. "It's fun when the crowd gets hyped when we do something cool. We all know what the feeling feels like, but I think they don't get to feel that as much and I think it's special that we get to give it to them."

Keating says the idea to start "We Not Me" came from the Enterprise High School football team a few years back. Five years later, the support and love continues to grow.

A dry and warmer than average Presidents' Day and work week is expected as high pressure dominates our weather. High temperatures will make the mid to upper 60s and the next chance for rain isn't until next Sunday.
