NEWBERRY — Newberry Elementary School students, faculty and staff dressed as superheroes on March 8 in observance of South Carolina Walk to School Day and to recognize Superheroes in law enforcement.

City police officers were on hand at NES to help with arrival by opening car doors and interacting with students. This public relations effort was a partnership organized by Principal Reggie Wicker and Police Chief Roy McClurkin.

The community relations are part of the department’s community policing philosophy.

In appreciation, NES faculty, staff and students are dressed as superheroes to thank the officers for their heroic acts each and every day.

Visiting officers included McClurkin, Captain Kevin Goodman, Sergeant Rodney Grey, Sergeant Mike Hawkins, Corporal Yolanda Medenhall and Patrolman Corey Hallman.

“Having the officers present, provided an opportunity for our students to see and interact with law enforcement in a helpful and friendly manner,” said Wicker. “Hopefully, their personal and positive experience will delete any negative thoughts about these heroic individuals.

“Our students were able to witness our 21st Century Global Citizen Skills of integrity, accountability and productivity in action,” he added. “Newberry Elementary School greatly appreciates the sacrifices our law enforcement men and women make each and every day to ensure the safety of our community.”
