Daryl Legg (3rd from left) is honored by the Cherokee Nation
Local resident Daryl Legg of Sallisaw will receive the "Champions of Change" award today from the White House. The award is given to ordinary Americans doing extraordinary things in their communities. Legg, who was previously sentenced to prison three times for drug possession in Arkansas and Oklahoma, now works for the Cherokee Nation as the Director of Vocational Programs. One of the programs that he oversees helps former prisoners get back on their feet after they are released from prison, helping them with jobs and housing. Legg serves as a role model through the Cherokee Nation and is proof that lives can be turned around with positive choices.
