LE MARS — Marcus Whitehead, the son of Ervin and Lisa, is the Jan. 21 Hot Shot.

Marcus is an amazing 13-year-old who attends the seventh grade at Gehlen Catholic School. His favorite things include playing basketball and Little League baseball, riding horses at STARS and playing Pokémon Go. He loves spending time with his family, playing with his puppy Milo and all things sport.

Marcus receives occupational and speech services through Floyd Valley Therapies. Mom said she feels the services Marcus receives have helped him not only academically but also by reinforcing the skills needed to be at his typical peer level. Speech therapy has helped him to speak more clearly so he can communicate better, and occupational therapy has helped him with strength and fine motor skills help with his writing and participation in school activities.

Join us in celebrating Marcus, our Jan. 21st Hot Shot!

The Sioux City Musketeers, in partnership with Floyd Valley Healthcare (FVH), announced its new Hot Shots program this summer. This program was created with the goal of honoring FVH pediatric patients who have chronic health issues. We are excited to give children an opportunity to have a fun time with their family, cheer on the team and just enjoy being a kid for a night.
