KISD – CANCELED: Chad Powell Memorial Special Olympics Track Meet
Special Olympics Texas is suspending all sport training and other competition activities through March 31 due to concerns about the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This includes Keller ISD’s 2020 Chad Powell Memorial Special Olympics Track Meet.
This year’s Chad Powell Track Meet was set to be held March 17. There are not currently plans to reschedule the event.
The annual meet brings hundreds of athletes from Keller ISD and surrounding school districts together to compete in track and field events, with the help of more than 500 student and adult volunteers.
In addition to celebrating good sportsmanship associated with Special Olympics, the annual meet honors former volunteer and Keller High Valedictorian Chad Powell who tragically passed away in the 1999 Aggie Bonfire collapse while a student at Texas A&M.
