Flagler County Sheriff Staly Presents Virtual ‘Great Kid’ Awards for April During COVID-19 Pandemic

Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly presented the April 2020 ‘Great Kid Award’ virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic and school closures. During the presentation, Sheriff Staly recognized three Flagler County students for making positive impacts in their schools and community.

“While kids are virtually learning, I’ll virtually award them for being great members of our community,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “I didn’t want to miss out on presenting these ‘Great Kid Awards’ because they deserve to be recognized for doing good in this community.”

Each month our School Resource Deputies work with school administrators to select one elementary, middle, and high school student for going above and beyond to help others. Sheriff Staly usually presents the awards in person in front of the student’s class, but due to COVID-19 closing the schools, a virtual presentation seemed to fit.

Michael Kramer

Michael Kramer who attends Matanzas High School and prior to classes being held virtually, was scheduled to be a Teacher’s Assistant. Michael is a wonderful assistant for the Law and Justice Program and has built a solid rapport with all students. He has an amazing sense of humor and always exemplifies great behavior.

Violet Ochrietor

7th grade student Violet Ochrietor from Indian Trails Middle School. Deputy Cooper has known Violet since elementary school and she continues to impress him. Violet is a straight “A” student who is committed and is a great representation of Indian Trails and they are lucky to have such an outstanding young lady as part of their school family.

Sebastian Alban

5th grader Sebastian Alban from Belle Terre Elementary School. He was nominated by Commander Reynolds for allowing the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office to participate in his Florida’s Missing Child Awareness Day assignment for his class. Sebastian’s essay was so well written, organized, and detailed. Sebastian strives for the best and embodies the skills and qualities of a true leader.

The FCSO will be mailing the awards and certificates to all recipients. We congratulate April’s winners and look forward to presenting more great kid with awards during the next school year.
