Everett "Nick" Kerby of Barne's Run is continuing to improve at the West Virginia Rehabilitation Center at Institute, according to his father, Warren "Bud" Kerby. Nick was taken to the center for rehab a short time ago, recovering from serious injuries received in an auto accident in Nashville, shortly after New Year's Day. His classmate was killed in the accident.

The elder Kerby said the plan is to help the youth walk on his own. "The staff at the center have already done wonders," he said.

"His speech is returning, but he has difficulty saying certain words, but he is learning," Kerby said. He said his remote or long-term memory is good, but he struggles with his short-term memory.

The Kerby family continues to express their appreciation to members of the community for their support and prayers.

"This kid is going to make it," said his dad. He will be at the rehab for several months.
