The Chief’s Difference Maker Award

At the beginning of the 2023 school year, Chief Robert Bruce implemented the Chief’s Difference Maker Award for students between grades 6-8 at local middle schools. The focus is to build positive, healthy, strong relationships with our youth and to recognize young student leaders who make a difference in their school and community. Awards are presented monthly to one student at each school who is identified by the school as a student who demonstrates leadership in punctuality, good manners, kindness, and citizenship.
