The Developing Opportunities to Excel (Project D.O.E.), Ameri-Corps project staff — under the sponsorship of the Burlington Housing Authority and its Future Challengers After School Enrichment Program — recognized our local law enforcement and firefi ghters in honor of the 9/11 Day of Remembrance. Fifty youth in kindergarten through high school created “thank you” letters, cards and posters and presented them to Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson, city of Burlington Assistant Chief of Police Eric Kerns and city of Burlington Fire Chief Jay Smith. All three spoke with the group about making good choices and encouraging them to do well in school. Above, Burlington Assistant Police Chief Eric Kerns and Fire Chief Jay Smith speak with BHA’s after school program participants.
