Phillips' chosen as one of Arkansas' Parents of the Year

Friday, July 27, 2012

Salem residents Gary and Rebecca Phillips received a surprise when they arrived for a cookout at Mammoth Spring State Park on Saturday, July 14. The large gathering of friends and family was really present for State Rep. Lori Benedict's announcement that the Phillips had been chosen as one of Arkansas' Parents of the Year. Benedict nominated the couple because of their commitment to their three children, and for their involvement in the state's foster care program. The Phillips were invited to the state capitol on July 21, where the Parents of the Year were honored.
