Wilder featured on today's 'Girl Talk'
Every Wednesday from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m. WNSI 105.9 FM in Atmore has "Girl Talk" hosted by Atmore resident Susan Smith.
Today's guest is Priscilla Wilder, a former local high school teacher, who was involved in a horrible accident several years ago. The accident occurred more than three years ago when a car ran over her, leaving her hanging on to life. She is a walking miracle that will tell her story and have you looking at life different. As quick as a flip of a coin, life as you know it can change, leaving you to struggle to stay alive or to learn a new way to cope with life changes.
