Your Turn: Devon Gales welcome home party

Your Turn: Devon Gales

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Tess Marie. She is one of several people who reacted on our Facebook page to the news about a big welcome home party for Southern University student Devon Gales. Gales was injured in a football game last September when Southern took on the University of Georgia in Athens. Since then, he's been recovering in Georgia from his injuries, but Saturday he comes back, the university has planned a festive homecoming celebration. Tess Marie thinks that's great. In her words:

"I would love to be at the airport to welcome him home. He is a great role model for the children with his handling of overcoming his injury and pushing forward in his recovery. I hope he has a big welcome home party on campus with lots of love and support."

That's Tess Marie's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
