I just wanted to send a note of thank you to PADAN for awarding me the 2019 Mike Ewles Community Builder Aware. To say you caught me off guard, and lost for words is truly an understatement. I cannot express in words just how honoured I am being bestowed this prestigious award.
I have had an amazing experience as Liaison with Chief for a Day over the last 8 years.
Having been a part of it from informing the schools, to the essay writing, to organizing the competition day, to becoming part of the "winner's" family for several weeks has been extremely rewarding.
I had the pleasure of being involved in the Chief for a Day program for three years. I can honestly say it was one of the most positive experiences as a Police Officer I have had. I had the privilege of working with great members from the community that put this whole event together, the committee members are a group of dedicated professionals who work many hours pulling the whole event together.
