Feagin works a full-time job, , does therapy with her son, and takes her son to all of his doctors and therapy appointments in different town. The bank selected Feagin to be the first recipient of their $450 gift package, including $100 gift certificates to Kathy’s Boutique, Star Nail and Merry Gardens. Fifty-dollar gift certificates were to McAlisters Deli, Athens Floral and Applebee’s. Payton, who is 7, is disabled and has cerebral palsy. He uses a wheelchair and walker, but works hard every day with his mother so he can hopefully walk one day.
