El Dorado-- Murphy USA is taking 5 South Arkansas residents to Trenton, New Jersey this week to compete in the 2014 National Special Olympics.

They will be flying them out on their private airplane and will be paying for all of their accommodations.        

Murphy staff, family, and friends, came out bright and early this morning to see them off.

Special Olympic contestant, Derek Smith, says this is a dream come true, and he is looking forward to one specific event.

"Softball, play hard, listen to my coaches, listen to my cousins and that's it," says Smith.

The Special Olympics competition is a week long event and participants will be back next Saturday.
