Skyler Hann

Skyler, a high school student, took it upon himself to volunteer as a middle school bus monitor. He assists the bus driver acting as an "extra set of eyes" to keep kids safe. Skyler has approached administrative staff to see if there is the possibility of establishing a school bus monitoring program led by high school students. To this day, Skyler continues to voluntarily ride the school buses every afternoon.

* Chase Hedrick, 8th Grade, Gulf Middle School

One of CCPD's operators received a call from Chase on Sunday, March 5, stating that he had found a bag of marijuana near the gates of a local middle school. Chase told the operator that he called his mom first, who instructed him to call the police to report the incident. Thanks to Chase's quick action and call, an officer was able to locate the marijuana and take it off the street. When others may have chosen to look the other way, Chase jumped into action.
