A young Galax police officer learned a hard lesson when his mom showed him some tough love in middle school, completely changing the direction he was headed.
Silverio Gonzales, whose family came to Virginia from Mexico, hated middle school and did just enough to get by.

“She taught us that education is the most important thing we can do for ourselves,” said Gonzales, who just joined the Galax Police Department as its first bilingual officer.
