BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – I had the honor of presenting the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office “Great Kid” Award to Dylan Badurek of Bayside High School for his amazing attitude and trustworthiness.
The “Great Kids” Award recognizes students in our community who consistently show respect for their peers, help others in a time of need, maintain a strong academic standard and represent themselves, their family and their school with great character and pride.
The program is facilitated in partnership with School Resource Officers and Deputies throughout Brevard County and Brevard Public Schools.
Dylan is an outstanding example of a student who is always willing to help others and of someone who possesses great character and honesty!
Recently a student at Bayside High School lost a very valuable and sentimental watch that had been passed down through generations of his family.
The student reported the missing item to School Resource Officer Dan Ellis who began to conduct a search.
A short time later Dylan saw the watch in a field and brought it to Officer Ellis who was able to return it to its owner.
While this is just one example of Dylan’s character there are many more accounts that demonstrate just how much of a great young man he truly is.
I had a chance to visit with Dylan and his Mom today before the presentation and was extremely impressed with what a respectful and caring young man he is!!
Please join me in congratulating Dylan on being a “Great Kid, his parents for raising such an impressive young man, and also in thanking Palm Bay Police Officer Dan Ellis and Principal Lena Wiebelt for nominating Dylan for this very deserving award.
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
