Wall received the award for "Unselfish Service to Others" in assisting a staff member in distress.

Custodian Wanda Jarvis experienced a severe drop in her blood sugar level, which lead to dizziness. Wall rushed to her aid, getting her a soda and staying with Jarvis until she stabilized. "I know I would have passed out if it hadn't been for her," said Jarvis. "She probably saved my life."

Wall is the daughter of David Wall and Jennifer Wall, both of Purdy.
