The residents of Creekwood Place in Russellville were recently blessed by a surprise at a monthly birthday party.

According to Travis Bryan, activities director for the facility, it was a University of Kentucky themed event and featured a surprise visit from former UK Wildcat Brandon Stockton.

Stockton is a former Glasgow Scottie and played for the University of Kentucky from 2002 through the 2006 season. He was chosen as Mr. Basketball of the State of Kentucky in 2002 and was honored with being the Gatorade State Player of Year.

Stockton signed autographs and took photographs with residents and staff while at Creekwood.

"We cannot thank Mr. Stockton enough for taking time out of his schedule to come and celebrate our resident birthdays," said Bryan. "His visit made their day."
