 Richardson students, Helina DeVera and Ola Salako, were honored by the Minnesota Twins at Target Field on April 15, 2016 on Jackie Robinson Day. They were honored for their “Breaking Barriers” essay submissions—where they described how they overcome personal barriers by using Jackie’s values—alongside others on the field during pregame events. The Twins hosted the Los Angeles Angels.  Ola Salako was also recognized but unable to attend the game. Helina was joined on the field by Richardson Principal, Jenna Peters.
