Outstanding Citizen Award
On June 2016, Russell Rouson and Steven Dozier, while riding bicycles on North Pine Street, heard an elderly woman desperately calling for help. Instead of ignoring the frantic calls for help, both young men decided to investigate and discovered an elderly woman in distress lying on the ground in her yard. Both Russell and Steven tried to comfort the woman and immediately called 911 for assistance.
Because of their decisive and immediate actions, the elderly woman received timely emergency medical care and is now recovering from her injuries.
I am extremely proud of both Russell and Steven who have distinguished themselves by performing an act of kindness for a person in crisis, wherein their service aided in the preservation of a human life. Both young men are well deserving of the Outstanding Citizen Award.
