During the event, the RPCC will also recognize Arkansas State Trooper Roy Moomey for his valiant dedication to his profession.

Moomey was involved in a fatal crash with a wrong-way driver on August 8, 2016, which left him hospitalized for weeks while undergoing multiple surgeries.

Documents and interviews from the investigation into the deadly wreck on Interstate 40 in Crawford County indicated the wrong-way driver intended to crash into Moomey’s vehicle as the trooper responded to the call. Moomey managed to maneuvered his patrol car into the lane of the on-coming vehicle and by doing so successfully prevented two vehicles and their occupants from being struck by the wrong-way driver.

Dress for the event will be country casual, jeans and boots.
