MARTHA & DERRICK'S STORY

As our associates continue to go above and beyond, we're sharing a story that celebrates our Walmart community. Martha Brown is a department manager at Store 878 in Cumming, Georgia. Her son Derrick is one of the best college football players in the country, a defensive tackle at Auburn University. After years of hard work and dedication, Derrick is about to get drafted into the NFL. Luckily, we were there to capture each step of Martha’s and Derrick’s journey for our content series “Raising A Giant.”

I’m proud to be a Walmart associate. I’ve been working at Walmart for 15 years, I know they’re going to take care of me when it comes to my family. Football plays a big part in our life, and I’ve never missed a game. I would have never thought that my child would be in the position that he’s in now.”
