MARIETTA, Ohio (WTAP) October's mom of the month is a mother of three girls from Marietta.
Marla Porter was nominated by her mother, Eva Campbell.
Marla has three daughters: Layne, Essence and Nikki.
All three girls were able to get out of school today to congratulate their mom.
Marla had no idea the WTAP news crew was coming to surprise her during her lunch break Tuesday.
Her mother nominated her, saying she goes above and beyond for her girls, all while attending school and working two jobs.
"When she would get off school, or off work, and they had things, she always made sure she was there for them. She's made me very proud," says Marla's mother, Eva Campbell.
"My mom means a lot to me. She helps me and supports me through a lot of things and she tries her best to make time for us, even with her busy schedule," says Marla's oldest daughter, Layne Porter.
"I love my girls so much. They're my inspiration. I do everything I do because I love them," says Marla.
Marla's mom says her daughter is more than deserving of this award.
She'll be receiving a bouquet from Crown Florals in Parkersburg, W.Va.
