Wichita County Sheriff's Awards and Honors

The Wichita County Sheriffs Office today recognized officers who went above and beyond the call of duty to save lives.

Sheriff David Duke presented awards to 3 deputies who responded quickly to a man with a gunshot wound who was found in a vehicle in front of the sheriffs office.

Duke says their quick actions very likely saved the man's life.

And Deputy Josh Brown was given the Tessa Price Award, named for a 16 year old Texoma girl who was killed by a drunk driver in 2011.

The sheriff's office made a total of 230 DWI arrests last year and Brown made 68 of those.

Brown has now won the award its first 2 years, and this year doubled his DWI arrests.

Wichita County Deputy Josh Brown says, "Its always an honor to be recongnized for the hard work that you do but its also at the same point its kind of sad that I'm getting an award for someone else' bad decisions".

Other deputies were also honored and two city view high school students received Herb Easly Chevrolet scholarships also in honor of Tessa Price.
