The Anna Jarvis House has named Anna McCloy, the wife of Sago Mine survivor Randal McCloy, "Mother of the Year."

McCloy was given a plaque at a ceremony on Saturday at the Anna Jarvis House in Taylor County. The museum's director, Olive Dadisman, says she received letters from all over the country nominating McCloy. Her husband, Randal McCloy, was also there. Dadisman says this award is fitting, because of everything the two have endured this year.

"She's very humble," says Dadisman. "And right now her main concern is her family and Randy, and continuing his progress to get better."

WBOY-TV's own April Kaull was the guest speaker. Country singer Skyla Spencer performed a song for all the miners of the Sago tragedy.

The Harrison County Commission has proclaimed this Saturday, "Randal McCloy Day."

Nutter Fort Elementary will host a car and truck show to honor the sole survivor of the Sago Mine disaster.

The McCloy family is expected to judge the competition, and as a special tribute, the trophies will be made of coal.

The car and truck show will start at 9:00 a.m. Saturday. Vehicle registrations will cost $10 and organizers say the proceeds will benefit the McCloy family.
