VALLEY – Langdale United Methodist Church in Valley presented “Peacekeeper Awards” Sunday to local school students who best exemplify good character and peacekeeping at their respective schools.


“Since 1999, we’ve been presenting these awards to students whose behavior and demeanor makes a positive impact on everyone around them,” said church youth director Melissa Roberts, who is also a teacher at Fairfax Elementary School. “Each year we ask participating schools to select two students they feel are most deserving of these awards.”


This year’s recipients were Diamond Clay and LaMarcus Hutchinson (Fairfax Elementary), Sarah Madison Davis and Thomas Kade Riley (LaFayette Lanier Elementary), Shamir Welch and Bryson East (Huguley Elementary), and Treanna Bridges and Zacarinen “R. J.” Miller (W. F. Burns Middle School.)


“We sincerely appreciate the churches and civic organizations throughout our community that recognize the outstanding efforts of our students,” said Chambers County School Superintendent Dr. Kelli Hodge.
