Five 4th grade students from Broad River Elementary School received the Burton Fire District’s Fire Chief’s Excellence Award today for their academic efforts this year.

The Burton Fire District’s awards program is designed to support teachers in their classroom by promoting student achievement and behavior through the recognition of student accomplishments.

Burton firefighters love their job and say if it were not for teachers who encouraged them they may never have achieved their dream of being a firefighter. It is in this spirit of supporting teachers and helping students reach their dreams that this award program was created.

“It takes a community to raise a child,” stated Burton Fire Chief Harry Rountree, “and we are part of this community.”
