A young girl’s courtesy gesture is being recognized by a Virginia sheriff’s office.
Dickenson County Sheriff’s Office members issued a special post of gratitude for Katie Mullins from Ervinton Elementary.
“When Sheriff Stanley and Mcgruff recently visited Ervinton Elementary, Katie Mullins answered one of the questions about tobacco at the end of the program and received a prize. After the program was over Katie saw that a young student was very sad because they really wanted the prize that she had received. Upon realizing this, Katie went up to the young student (not knowing anyone was looking) and gave her prize to them. Many times we hear about bullying and negative issues facing schools but this is an example that there are students like Katie that are a positive difference in their school. If everyone would display kindness and care for each other as this student has, our community would be a better place to live. Thank you Katie and to all students that display kindness and care every day. We believe that Katie and students alike make a bigger difference than they will ever know. Parents and teachers, keep up the good work in teaching our children to care for others,” Dickenson County posted to Facebook.
We’d also like to congratulate Miss Mullins for her special act of kindness!
