DAMASCUS, GA (WALB) -

There was an emotional scene on a football field Friday night when Taylor Stuart was introduced as a member of the Southwest Georgia Academy homecoming court.

Taylor suffered two broken vertebrae in a crash near her home in Seminole County August 21st. She came home from the Shepherd Spinal Center in Atlanta just for homecoming.

She's got one more week of therapy in the day program there before she's home for good. Her family says folks at SGA and even some rival schools have been extremely supportive.

There is a fund set up in Taylor's name at First State Bank if you'd like to donate to help with medical bills.
