VILONIA — Andrew and Marla Watson, the executive director of the Soaring Wings Ranch/home for children, were presented the “Community Service Award” by Senator Jason Rapert as the award winner for the month of the June, at a recent special event at the Ranch, for their wonderful, life-changing work with children.

“Soaring Wings is truly saving lives and rescuing children who have often been in horrible and hopeless situations. Andrew and Marla Watson are visionaries who have dedicated their lives to providing a safe and loving atmosphere for children who need someone to care,” said Senator Jason Rapert.

Soaring Wings Ranch is a Christ-centered ministry that serves children who are abused, abandoned, neglected, orphaned, or in need of a strong family structure. The Ranch provides a loving and stable home where kids can develop and grow spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and socially. The children who live at the Ranch receive hope and healing through educational development, counseling, a loving family environment, and the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Community Service Awards recognizes those that are touching and positively affecting lives in our community and that would otherwise go unnoticed. Find out more or nominate someone for the CSA at communistyserviceaward.com.
