On April 7th, Commissioner Chris Jackson had the privilege of helping open the 2017 Special Olympic Games in Lawrence County. The games, which were held at the Lawrence County High School football field, provided a fun-filled day of competition for contenders from across the county.

The annual event gives competitors the opportunity to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship.

Lawrence County Government would like to congratulate all those who participated in this year's games and would like to thank you for being an inspiration to all of us every day.

Our county is proud of each and every one of you! Great job!
