The WCSO K9 Unit and School Resource Deputies are enlisting the help of our Walton County K through 4th grade teachers and students to come up with a name for our K9 “stuffed” pup. The K9 Unit will choose the name and will present the pup to the winning class. The winning class will get to keep the pup for the year and at the end, the School Resource Deputy will choose a student out of the class who has shown a “Commitment to Excellence.”
We also plan to engage the community through Facebook and recognize all the classes who submitted a name. The winner will be announced and a photo opportunity will be done with the classroom, K9 Unit and School Resource Deputy.
Kick-off begins today and all submissions must be given to the School Resource Deputy by Friday, October 10th. The Public Information Officer will work with the K9 Unit in choosing the top 5 names, which will be posted on Facebook. A winner will be chosen by the K9 Unit, taking into consideration the number of votes each name gets on Facebook. A time will be set up to highlight the event and make the presentation to the classroom.
