One local high school says thank you to police officers by having a little fun.

McDowell’s ROTC program hosted a LEAD event today. LEAD stands for Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Officers were invited to bring their families to enjoy refreshments and games.  

Coordinators say officers don’t always get the appreciation they’re owed.

“I think a lot of what happens with law enforcement often times goes without thanks, and this is our way of saying to them thank you for what you do and know that we support you,” said John Nygaard, McDowell ROTC Director. 

More than 100 students are involved in McDowell’s program. The advisor tells us the program teaches cadets about community involvement.
