Three students who attend Flagler County Schools were recognized by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office for March's “Great Kid” award.
Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly met with each student on Wednesday, March 15 and presented them with their awards, a press release from FCSO said. March's "Great Kid" award went to Larry Covington from Bunnell Elementary School, Makayla Golding from Indian Trails Middle School and Kamisha Lewis, a senior from Matanzas High School
“I congratulate each of these amazing students who represent their schools and our students in Flagler County so well,” Staly said. “This is a way to recognize our kids that make the right decisions that you rarely hear about.”
The "Great Kid" award is a monthly award given to one elementary, middle and high school student who are respectful to their peers, helps others, works hard in academics, and represents themselves and the school well, the press release said.
