BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – During Wednesday night’s Golden Eagle Dinner hosted by the Central Florida Boy Scouts, I was honored to be recognized as the event’s “Golden Eagle Honoree” for leadership and community involvement.
The event, that was held at the Radisson at the Port is held annually to bring awareness and support to the Central Florida Boy Scouts for all they do to develop future leaders of our community through their many programs.
The event’s theme was about heroes, and while I was humbled to be recognized as the “Golden Eagle Honoree,” I, know better than anyone else that it is the 1,500 proud men and women of our agency who are the true heroes and who deserve the recognition for all they do each and every day to protect our citizens.
I can honestly tell you that not a day goes by that one of our citizens doesn’t share with me how much they appreciate our agency. On each occasion, I share with them just how proud I am of the amazing work our members do and what an honor it is to be part of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office family.
I have been in Law Enforcement my entire adult life and I have never seen a more dedicated team to not only protecting their community through their jobs but by also rolling up their sleeves and volunteering to make a difference in their community.
From helping raise the needed funds to support the many great charities in our community, to volunteering with an organization our team is always involved in trying to make a difference. The men and women of our agency consider themselves blessed to have the amazing support of our community and want to do everything possible to give back.
Our community loves and protects us just as much as we love and protect them and having that kind of support means the world to us.
I stand in awe of the amazing work our members do and their passion for serving others!! So while my name may be the one that was read last night, I was humbled to accept the recognition on behalf of our entire agency, because they are the true heroes who deserve the recognition and credit for just how safe a community we live in.
I want to personally thank the Boy Scouts and their leadership team for honoring our agency during their annual event, and even more so for all they do to help develop America’s future leaders each and every day of the year.
I want to also thank everyone who attended last night’s Golden Eagle Dinner who collectively helped raise over $225,000.00 to support the Boy Scouts of America!!
