Shawna Turner of Sanger recently received a Who’s Who of Parker award from Dallas-based Parker University, formerly known as Parker College of Chiropractic.
Turner was presented with the Student Body Student of the Year Award for living the chiropractic philosophy. Her husband was in an accident and was told he would never walk again.
With the help of chiropractic, her husband has beaten his doctor’s prognosis. In addition to the award, the graduating class of spring 2012 donated $1,771, the remainder of their class budget, to the Turners.
The awards are given to faculty, a staff member and a student.
Each class nominated their selection for each award, and the student senate voted on the winner. The recipients were chosen for demonstrating a compassion to serve that is greater than a compulsion to survive.
