This week, Senator McConnaughay spotlights Christopher Chavez, a St. Charles East High School alumnus selected to be part of the Team Illinois delegation to the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games in Seattle.
Christopher will be one of 3,500 athletes competing in individual and team sports at the Special Olympics USA Games, which are scheduled from July 1 through 6. He will participate in running, long jump and mini javelin competitions.
