7News Editorial: KSWO's commitment to positive news

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Fires, traffic accidents, natural catastrophes, terrorism...these are stories 7News reports on each day to inform viewers in Southwest Oklahoma and around the world.

At KSWO, we're taking a stand to also report the good news in the communities we serve. Earlier this week, we reported on the Mudder's Day Run at McMahon Park where the proceeds go toward wheelchairs, ramps and scholarships for disabled children.

We also told the story of the Duncan High School band using the power of music to honor six of their classmates who were lost before they were able to graduate.

Just before Mother's Day, 7News reported on the inspiring story of the Thompson family where a mom and her two daughters graduated together from Cameron University.

We also brought you the story of the Lawton Police Department kicking off the run for the Oklahoma Special Olympics.

KSWO is committed to reporting stories that impact the lives of its viewers and we're taking a stand to tell you about the good along with the bad.
