Carla Nelson teaches fourth grade at Tucker Elementary School in Lowell. That’s where Lowell Police Chief Randy Harvey puts in a handful of hours each week, keeping his community safe.
“He and some of his officers are here daily, checking the security, being friendly with the students so they know who they are,” said Nelson.
Nelson says the Chief goes beyond what is asked of him, which is what makes him stand out so much.
“He also volunteers his own personal time for our school we had a Fall festival this past Fall and he came on his own personal time to be one of the judges for the costume contest and we’re doing a contest for box tops and he’s volunteered his time to have lunch with the winning class and the students love him,” said Nelson.
Honor and character above the rest, giving the community reason enough to salute Chief Harvey.
“The students just love him and he has that great relationship with him and I think if one of them were to have a bad day outside of school, whatever that was, he would be there,” said Nelson.
