A local family is in need of community support.
Shawn and Whitney Reeves were proud parents on Oct. 6, 2012, by giving birth to their daughter Sunni Nicole Reeves. Shortly after her birth, she was diagnosed with a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and has since gone through around seven surgeries.
According to Facebook, her parents found a medical institution in Houston to get Sunni the care she needs. Shawn and Whitney also have two small boys attending school, Ryder and Cooper, so they both travel back and forth to give their time and attention evenly to their children.
If community members and students truly want to arrive alive, they are encouraged not to drive distracted behind the wheel.
This was the message of the â€śArrive Alive: Don't Text and Driveâ€ť rally held Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012, at Borger High School. The rally was organized by sophomore class officers J.T. Conner, Lane Myers, Callie Galloway, Christian Marr, and Britany Rodriguez.
Featured speaker for the event was Department of Public Safety Trooper Darrin Bridges. He said there are tragedies that occur daily as a result of distracted driving.
