The “O” Award
The "O" Award is given to any person or group and/or company that makes their community better in any aspect.
The award is in honor of Otha Young. Otha was a huge part of Juice Newton's career until his death in 2009. Otha will always be remembered as a very positive person who saw the best in everyone.
The 2018 "O" Award goes to Wanda Fowler Eckoff. Wanda's cause is The Angel Band Project.
Rachel Ebeling is the founder of the amazing cause. The cause is about music helping to heal victims of sexual assault.

Wanda skydives to raise funds to help the The Angel Band Project assist those in need. Wanda has done this for a number of years and assists in other ways when needed.
When the horrible action of sexual assault takes place, the long journey in recovery is so very difficult. Through music, the victims can ease the pain and ease the process by channeling through a therapy that they will enjoy. Perhaps a favorite song as a child or school party.
Wanda's ability to put other's needs first and her dedication to such an important cause is why she was chosen for the "O" Award for 2018. Wanda is a kind understanding person and her vision to assist any and all in need such as The Angel Band Project is so very admirable.
I am very proud of Wanda. She is not only an angel, she is family.
