Law’s Kristin Connolly was recently chosen to be a Special Olympics Spirit of Life Award recipient for 2014.
Special Olympics Connecticut honors athletes each year for exemplifying spirit, courage, and joy. Students are chosen each year throughout Connecticut for showing off their athletic and team spirit.
As an honoree, Connolly will be recognized at the Special Olympics Connecticut annual Hall of Fame Awards banquet at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville, CT, on Wednesday, March 25. Connolly will be able to bring guests of her choice to the ceremony with her to be presented with the award.
“I feel very happy to be chosen for the award,” Connolly said. “I am very excited for the award banquet.”
Connolly is only one of eight recipients for this award that is given annually to recognize athletes for their years of dedication and support.
Connolly will be bringing her dad and Law teachers and paraprofessionals Mrs. White, Mrs. Aranda, Mrs. Daniels, Mrs. Holden, Mrs. McKeever, Mrs. Kish, and Mrs. O’Connell to the banquet.
