Isaiah Tsosie

Washington High School

Sports Unified - Partner of the Year

When Isaiah stated attending Washington High School two years ago, there was not a Unified Sports team on campus. As a peer tutor in a special education class, Isaiah took it upon himself to build a Unified Sports program from the ground up. With his unique, fun spirit and outgoing personality, Isaiah has recruited students from many different groups on campus to emphasize the principle of inclusion. His intuitive knack for pairing unified athletes (students with intellectual disabilities) and unified partners (students without intellectual disabilities) has resulted in truly meaningful friendships and a sense of camaraderie that extends after the final game buzzer.

Not only is Isaiah a perceptive and innovative leader, he is also patient, kind, and respectful to all students on campus. Isaiah truly exemplifies what it means to be a good role model. In addition to mentor many students on campus through tutoring and friendship, Isaiah is constantly brainstorming ideas to advocate for individuals with disabilities. During March 2017, he helped organize a “Spread The Word To End The Word” Campaign on Washington High School’s campus. The R-Word Campaign educates others on the harmful impact of the R-word, and encourages them to pledge to end their derogatory use of the word. Isaiah gave up his lunch hour the day of the campaign to persuade over 500 students pledged to end their negative use of the R-Word during the school’s 2017 campaign. There is no doubt that Isaiah’s passion and dedication will continue to positively impact the lives of those around him for many years to come.
