Sheriff Rick Staly visited three local schools recently to present three exceptional students with awards for being “Great Kids” for the month of November 2021.
“We’re excited to get back to presenting some of the wonderful kids we have in Flagler County with the Sheriff’s Great Kid Awards,” Staly said. “The kids getting these awards today are all doing great things in our community and their schools. We want them to know that we appreciate their hard work and we’re here to help and support them to reach their goals.”
Jaxon Steve is a kindergarten student at Belle Terre Elementary School. He is always positive and has an upbeat attitude on a daily basis. He can always be counted on, shows integrity at all times and is a fine example for other students to follow. He’s an outstanding young man as part of the BTES family!
Teyana Lemon is a Bunnell Elementary School student being recognized for her positive attitude and leadership skills. She is a role model to her peers and is always respectful, responsible, and an enthusiastic student who provides guidance to others. She is worthy of receiving this recognition and is an outstanding young lady! When she returned to her classroom the students had quickly made congratulations messages for her!
Hailey Swett is a Matanzas High School Student who’s exceptional and exemplifies the meaning for this award. She does outstanding work and treats all students as a friend and peer. She helps them understand and complete their assignments, and is a perfect role model to students, always showing them compassion. She is the best candidate for an award of this magnitude because of all she does for the MHS ESE population.
The “Great Kid” award is presented by the Sheriff to a student selected by School Resource Deputies who show respect for their peers, help others, work hard to do well in academics, and represent themselves, their family, and their school with great character. The recipients for the awards are nominated by Flagler County Sheriff’s School Resource Deputies and Flagler Schools and are awarded on a monthly basis to one elementary, middle, and high school student.
