PALM COAST, FL – This morning, Sheriff Rick Staly visited three local schools to present three exceptional students with awards for being “Great Kids” for the month of January 2021.
“The Great Kid Awards give us the opportunity to meet and recognize some extraordinary kids doing great things in our community and in their schools,” said Sheriff Staly. “This is a terrific tradition that we started in 2018 and it is something that we look forward to every month. We hear too much in the media about kids who make bad decisions, it is an honor to present this award to these students and shine a spotlight on the kids in Flagler County who are working to make a positive impact.”
