Family of the Year is a designation Baylor and Jamie Walker of Garden City never expected to receive, but they are honored, none the less.
The Walkers have been named the Samaritan Counseling Center of West Texas Family of the Year for this area.
âWe can think of many other families in Howard and Glasscock counties that are much more deserving,â Jamie Walker said.
The Walkers have three children, Shawn, Lyndee and Mason. The family has been a part of the Garden City community for 12 years as well as members of First Presbyterian Church.
