Selma Times-Journal: Busy few weeks prove to be worthwhile
The last few weeks have been exciting for me. From getting married the last day of February to covering many wonderful events in Selma since then, I have been extremely busy and very blessed.
Of course getting married was wonderful, and I could not be happier with finally being able to call Blake my husband. But shortly after our wedding, it was back to work, and we had to hit the ground running.
I’ve had the opportunity to be within inches of the President of the United States and the First Family — talk about an awesome experience.
Former President George W. Bush even wrote me a personalized letter in response to a letter I left for him concerning my uncle Randy Royer.
Only one week ago Randy was awarded the Purple Heart. It was an honor well-deserved, and our family is so proud of him and his courage in the face of a horrible tragedy — the Ft. Hood shooting in 2009.
I’ve been able to work with Congresswoman Terri Sewell on multiple occasions for stories, and I have really come to admire and respect such a wonderful woman and leader for our community.
