‘Touch A Truck’ Enjoyed by Miller County Students


Students enjoy listening to the pilot of the helicopter. Students enjoy listening to the pilot of the helicopter. On Wednesday, October 18, students attending the Miller County School System were visited by many personnel from several of our Emergency Service Departments. The students were allowed to touch or view several emergency vehicles while meeting and talking to officers, pilots, and firemen. The departments that were represented were Air Heart Life Flight, Georgia State Patrol (road vehicles and helicopter), Miller County Sheriff’s Department, Colquitt Police Department, Miller County Emergency Medical Service, and Colquitt-Miller County Fire Department. Both emergency personnel and students seemed to enjoy the event, a time which allowed emergency personnel the opportunity to encourage students to attend school regularly, do their best in their school work, and always strive to exhibit good or excellent behavior.

Chief Hollis Smith of the Colquitt Police Department, along with other law enforcement officers, worked together to provide the “Touch A Truck” event.

This was the beginning of an incentive program they are planning for the students during the year who maintain perfect attendance and students who exhibit good behavior. They encourage all students to attend school each and every day, do their best work, and strive to have excellent behavior. We hope all the students will do this as they wait to see what incentive or reward will be offered at the end of the second nine weeks or end of the first semester.
