A Moore teacher and mother get the surprise of a lifetime!

Posted: Updated:
Close to one year ago, a deadly E-F-5 tornado tore through Moore, destroying everything in its path.
Maylene Sorrels is a teacher's aide at plaza towers elementary school where seven children died.
During the May 2013 tornadoes, she used her body to shield the students in her class, saving their lives.
Maylene's home was one of many that was destroyed during those severe storms, and it was home to her and her ten children!

Maylene was invited to speak with talk show host Queen Latifah about her story and Queen Latifah was so moved by maylene's story, she wanted to help her get back on her feet. So, with the help of Oklahoma's very own Bob Mills, Maylene Sorrels and her family were presented with a big surprise! Make sure to watch the surprise on Queen Latifah's show, right here on FOX 25.
