Webster Henry’s managing shareholder, Scott Speagle assisted with a Vehicle Lease and Special Needs Trust that allowed Alabama Wounded Blue to present Montgomery Police Officer Carlos Taylor with a specially equipped van to meet his needs following a tragic accident while in the line of duty and to donate $33,000.00 raised from our amazing Montgomery community for the benefit of Officer Taylor.

Officer Carlos Taylor of the Montgomery Police Department was severely wounded in February 2017 in a motor vehicle accident while on an undercover burglary detail. He has a brain stem injury and is confined to a wheelchair. He cannot do anything except blink his eyes.

Officer Taylor has a tremendous impact on our community as evidenced by the participation of numerous community leaders including Alabama Wounded Blue, Stivers Automotive Group, Superior Van and Mobility, Braun Ability, ALFA, Attorney General Steve Marshall, District Attorney Daryl Bailey, and the many who donated money to assist our wounded officer.
