Welcome Home, Shelton!

PIERCE - The community of Pierce is throwing a big celebration this afternoon and you're invited. Shelton Dvorak, who suffered a brain injury in a football game against Albion Boone Central a month ago, is coming home after spending a month in Lincoln at a hospital and rehabilitation center. Family friend Caroline Sherman tells WJAG NEWS Shelton is being released in time for tonight's Pierce home football play-off game and they're asking as many as people to line the streets of Pierce to welcome him home. She says the family is scheduled to arrive back in Pierce around 3:00 this afternoon.
