Monday August 15th, Ada High orientation was a little different.  Seniors started off their morning in prayer for two students injured in a traumatic car accident. Students, Avery Anderson and Karsen Sheffield suffered injuries from the impact of the accident. Karsen is home and healing from a concussion and broken pelvis. Avery spent 3 weeks in OU Medicals’s TICU before being transported to Bethany, Oklahoma at The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital in a coma recovering from a traumatic brain injury. She has been in the rehabilitation center for a little over a week now, and is slowly, but surely improving.

 

The students at Ada High feel the absence of their classmates.

“Not having my best friend with me to start the school year, and not knowing when she’ll be here again with me has been really hard to cope with. But I know Avery is healing and God is making the best out of this situation, and soon I’ll get to cheer her on in the halls.” – Mackenzee Crosby, AHS Senior.

“Both Avery and Karsen are super positive, and always so kind to everyone whether in class or in the halls. I could always count on receiving  a smile from one of them. I am sending my thought and prayers to their families.” – Anonymous

“This school year hasn’t been the same without the light that radiates from Ace and Karsen. I definitely can’t wait to have both of them back again to make me laugh.” – Marleigh McClure, AHS Senior

 

The families are grateful for everyone’s prayers and support through this trial. You can get updates on Avery’s condition by joining the Facebook page, “Avery Anderson Updates”

In the words of Tiffany Anderson, “Standing firm. Life.”
