Roy Cravens & Roy Cravens Honored By County
Roy Cravens has won the April Character Award from the Putnam County Commission ... and so has Roy Cravens. One is a retired Cookeville police officer who worked with the DARE program for 18 years. The other works at the Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency. Both were honored last night. The Roy Cravens who works at UCHRA was nominated for the award by a woman whose family car had a flat tire as they were travelling through Cookeville. He stopped his vehicle, paid for the repair of the tire, bought the stranded family a meal and paid for them to stay overnight at a local motel. When asked for information on how they could repay him, Cravens told the family to do something good for someone else.
