RI's Olympian Welcomed Home Wednesday
WJAR is planning a homecoming rally for Elizabeth Beisel.
Rhode Island will welcome home its biggest star of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London this Wednesday. WJAR-TV (Channel 10) is organizing a homecoming rally for North Kingstown native Elizabeth Beisel on Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. at North Kingstown High School.
According to North Kingstown School Superintendent Phil Auger, the rally will be held on the athletic field at the high school. Those planning to attend the event are encouraged to wear their Team Beisel T-shirts and to bring signs.
Beisel, a 2010 graduate of North Kingstown High School, is returning home to Rhode Island after competing in her second Olympics at the age of 19. During the 2008 Olympics, she was the youngest member of the US Swim Team at 15 years old.
North Kingstown High School is located at 150 Fairway Drive in North Kingstown.
