State Senator Karen McConnaughay (R-St. Charles) spotlights John Hoscheit from St. Charles for earning the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Annual Charlemagne Dinner.
From the Northwest Herald:
City resident John Hoscheit – who in the last year received statewide recognition and had a forest preserve named after him – received another honor Friday, this time from the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce.
The organization bestowed him with a lifetime achievement award during its 94th annual Charlemagne Awards Dinner at the Q Center.
Hoscheit, who moved to St. Charles as an eighth-grader, said he was lucky both to grow up and to raise his family there with his wife of 30 years.
“We’ve taken more from the community than we’ve given back,” he said.
The Charlemagne Award honors individuals with a history of service to the community.
Hoscheit is its 58th recipient since its creation in the 1960s, according to a list of past winners.
He noted he was looking at the list earlier.
“To be recognized in that group is just unbelievable,” he said.
