Dozens of local and area law enforcement officials attended a law enforcement appreciation and prayer ceremony hosted last Friday by the 2018-2019 Uvalde County 4-H ambassadors.
The ceremony was held in the downtown square at noon. Uvalde County 4-H ambassadors are Brett Dreyer, Morgan Dreyer, Cayce Gaston, Colton Gaston, Kayleigh Griffin, Genesis Pilkington, Rebekah Ramirez, Koben Sanchez, Kyla Sanchez, Hannah Smith, Hope Smith, McCoy Smith and Kennedy Thompson.
Hannah Smith gave the welcome address.
“Often in today’s society, officers are not appreciated for their service,” Smith said. “Not today in Uvalde County. We are here today to commend these fine individuals who put their lives in danger [by] putting a shield over their chest and being our true heroes.”
Cayce Gaston gave the invocation, Kyla Sanchez recited the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States of America, Brett Dreyer recited the Pledge of Allegiance to the state flag of Texas, Hope Smith recited the 4-H motto and pledge and Morgan Dreyer recited a special prayer prepared for law enforcement officials.
