In all the years that we have recognized a new recipient of the Caught in the Act Award each week, I'm thinking this one is a new record.

While I'm sure there are loads of young people doing incredible things around here every day, I honestly believe that Ty Morgan is the youngest recipient we have ever recognized.

This little guy is still in grade school. He's only 10 years old, and he's already learned the most valuable lesson we could ever teach our children.

That lesson is that it's not about you! It's about helping others. And when Ty recently saw a young family in need, he jumped into action to fill that need.

Thanks to his Dad, we heard about Ty's act of generosity and were glad to name his this week's recipient of the Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award.

Ty is a normal 10 year old kid but has a heart of gold. Recently a young couple here in the Arklatex had a baby and immediately the baby had to be flown to Dallas where it remains today. Both parents are staying in Dallas with the baby and expenses are crazy. So, Ty asked me, "Dad can we help them?" I said son, how do you want to help? He said, "My friend showed me how to make bracelets out of runner bands. So, I ordered the material and he went to work. He has recently raised over 500 dollars at 5 dollars per bracelet. He is always wanting to help, from holding the door for his mom and sister to making sure his sister is always ok. Ty calls me every night and says Daddy let’s say our prayers!!!! He is one of a kind and a super great kid and I’m super proud to be his dad!!!!

Ty Morgan, thank you for being so amazing! You are a big reason why this is the greatest place in America to live! And because you've been 'Caught in the Act' the gang at Silver Star Smokehouse have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner!

Take a listen to the phone call we made to Ty to let him know that he was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.

Take a Look Inside Bossier's New Surge Entertainment Complex

The old Virginia College location inside the Pierre Bossier Mall is being transformed into a fun-seekers paradise! The brand-new Surge Entertainment Adventure Park by Drew Brees is set to open later this spring, and construction is chugging along on all of the amenities and I've got the exclusive pictures to prove it.

Easter Events for the Whole Family

Lots of great events for the family are planned in our area.
