Gold Medalist Selected As State Fair Parade Grand Marshal

A U.S. gold medalist will be the front man at the Twilight Parade in Springfield tomorrow.  Kevin McKee is a member of the U.S. Paralympic sled hockey team but he can add Grand Marshal to his list of accomplishments.  He was born with a spinal deformity but that's never stopped his athletic aspirations.  The Quad Cities native played tennis in high school and wheelchair basketball in college.  McKee has skated on Team USA's National Sled Hockey Team since 2010, and helped lead the squad to first place in Sochi, Russia last year.  He'll be in the first car at the parade, which starts at 6:00 tomorrow evening.
