Ozark To Hold First Daisy Games

By  | 

It's a call every parent dreads.

Kim Shepard said, "None of us are exempt from tragedy, you never know and I found that out."

In March of 2011, Brittany Shepard Pugh was just 24 when her car was struck head on driving down 231 just north of Brundidge. Her 15-month-old son, Shep, was also killed in the accident.

Her mother Kim said, "She was a wonderful teacher and she loved helping children and others."Teaching and mentoring her Barbour County students was Brittany's passion, that is why the Maude Martin Study Club started a scholarship in her name.

Kim said, "This scholarship is just a way to carry on her legacy."

This Saturday will be the first ever Daisy Games, it is a way to raise money for that scholarship. There will be a Mush Ball Tournament and children's festivities.

Events start at 8 a.m. and is free of charge. But donations will go towards the scholarship fund. It is awarded to a young woman from Dale County who plans to pursue a college career.

President Maude Martin Study Club Randy Matthews said, "And rain or shine tomorrow there is going to be a lot of sunshine in our hearts so everyone come out and enjoy the day."

Kim said, "We know that Brittany and Shep are waiting on us. They are in our future. We look to that day and faith has carried us and our hope in heaven."

This is the second scholarship awarded to a Dale County senior. Kim Shepard wants to thank all of the sponsors, The Maude Martin Study Club, the Daisy Games Committee and the community for their support.
