Emma Talley Donates AED to Local Ky School

At halftime of Friday’s Caldwell County football game, Caldwell fans got a chance to see one of the most decorated Tiger athletes ever as Emma Talley returned to Princeton.

On her break from the Symetra Tour, Talley was home to make a donation to her school. She recently played in a charity golf tournament where the Lord Wedgewood Charity — a charity that works to fight sudden cardiac arrests — gave her a defibrillator to donate. Talley chose to give it to her alma mater and was thrilled to do it.

“It’s a travelling defibrillator, so they can not only use it at the school during hours, but they can also take it to football games, soccer games, basketball,” Talley said. “This is one of the biggest gifts I’ve ever received and to be able to give something that could save somebody’s life — I’ve done a lot in my golf career, but I’ve never saved a life before. It’s pretty cool.”

Talley will continue her golf career in two weeks at the next Symetra Tour event in South Dakota.

On January 29, 2014, we Lost a great man.Lord Piers Wedgwood

” Today marks the day we lost our great friend Lord Piers Wedgwood. There was no one more special than him.
After his heart attack in Birmingham in 2000, sitting in his hospital bed atUAB – The University of Alabama at Birmingham Piers vowed to make a difference, so he then shortly after gathered myself, Floyd Larkin and Robbie Robertson and his vision of The Lord Wedgwood Charity began.
Although Piers has left us, his spirit never leaves us and it’s in that spirit our Lord Wedgwood will move forward into the future.
God Bless you Piers! ” Frank Bromberg

” Its hard to believe that it has been three years since we celebrated Lord Wedgwood’s life. We have missed his friendship, fellowship and leadership dearly. I know he would be thrilled that the charity continues to flourish with the continued support of Wedgwood and the new partnership with ASMI and most importantly, we have saved more lives”
Floyd Larkin

” 10 months prior to his passing, Piers pulled me to the side and said, you make sure to get in touch with Michelle Westcott-Richards and she will help you continue this wonderful charity and continue to help save lives: Well Piers, you were correct my friend, Wedgwood has continued being the largest donor and your Legacy will live on” Lance Evans

Wedgwood Charity Along with ASMI and Champion Sports Medicine donate AED’s to three different schools on Aug 23 2017.  Moody High School, St. Clair County High School and Springville High School.
