School resource officer Cody Myers recognized Taylor Barry's volunteerism and dedication.
Riverton High School senior Taylor Barry was given the Most Outstanding Student award by Fremont County School District 25 school resource officer Cody Myers during a school board meeting Jan. 28.
Myers congratulated her for meeting his expectations and learning the values, loyalty and duty that comes with being in the military science class. Myers said Barry struggled a bit the year before and was missing class until she finally approached him.
"Taylor impressed me this year. She said, 'I will not let you down,'" Myers said. "That means so much to me."
Now, in her second year in the military science class, Myers said Barry has helped volunteer, including at a veterans breakfast event.
"She's done a wonderful job," he said. "(The award is) for her dedication (and) telling me what she was going to do and following through with that."
Barry also received a military science class award from the Fremont County Board of Cooperative Education Services, and Myers gave her a "challenge coin" made by the Wyoming State School Resource Officers Association. Behind the coin it read, "changing attitudes and building relationships that last a lifetime."
