Wichita County Sheriff's Office awards several people in memory of a DWI victim.

During the Wichita County Sheriff's Office's Quarterly Award Ceremony Deputy Gabriel Villarreal received the Tessa Price award.

Deputy Villarreal made 43 driving while intoxicated arrests in 2013.

The award is given in memory of Tessa Price, 16 year old City View student, who died from a DWI accident on Seymour Highway in 2011.

This is fantastic. I can't tell you how appreciative the family is for the sheriff's department to do this and to continue to do this. It keeps her memory alive and maybe it prevents someone else from being a victim of DWI,” said Mitch Tasker, Tessa's Uncle.

Two scholarships were also given to two Holliday students in memory of Tessa.

Alissa Stevens, and Hannah Pond received $500 dollars from Herb Easley Chevrolet.
