Garden City sixth grader receives the Dennis Winfield Leadership Award at the City of Brooklyn Center’s Police and Citizens Awards Ceremony on Tuesday evening, April 21st. One student from each of Brooklyn Center’s elementary schools receives this award for going beyond the expectations set by his or her school in regards to helping others.
This award honors Dave Winfield who lost his life defending others. “Winfield’s willingness to get involved at the risk of his own safety and courage, in order to keep another person from being harmed, were actions above and beyond expectations,”
The GC winner was chosen for this award because she consistently follows Garden City Elementary’s school BLUE expectations: Be Respectful | Learn Responsibily | Use self control and | Everyone Achieves. "This student makes connections to many. She also continously "does the right thing even when it is hard!"
