“As an alumnus of Joliet Catholic, it’s exciting to see the Angels and Hilltoppers of today carrying on the tradition of success,” Connor said. “Not only are they exceeding athletically, I’m impressed at their strong work ethic in the classroom as well. These are the leaders of tomorrow, and I’m excited for what their future has in store for them.”
Connor welcomed members of JCA’s dance team, which secured its first ever IHSA championship this past January, as well as players from the football team, which won its state record 14th championship last fall. Connor gave a tour of the House floor and explained the legislative process to the student athletes, as well as JCA Principal Dr. Jeffrey Budz and football Head Coach Jake Jaworski.
