FT. SILL, OK._ Ft. Sill announced it's 2012 Family of the Year on Monday. Winona Wilkerson and her children accepted the award on behalf of her husband, Staff Sergeant Jermaine Wilkerson, who was unable to attend the event. Winona said the award took her entire family by surprise.
"I'm in shock," Wilkerson said.
Winona says her husband is involved with many fundraising efforts and charity work in the community. All of their children are involved in activities like sports, boys and girls scouts and more. Winona stays busy, too. She says her biggest job is taking care of her family.
"I like to do it and I enjoy helping kids and family and everything," Wilkerson said.
The Wilkersons were 1 of 29 families that were nominated this year.
