HIGH SPRINGS – Three team captains for city-based teams, which participated in the 2016 Alachua/High Springs Relay for Life, received Certificates of Appreciation for their hard work during the event. The presentations were made at the beginning of the June 23 High Springs City Commission meeting.

Linda Hewlett, a member of the 2016 Relay Leadership Team, presented a certificate for City of High Springs Team Leader Courtney Odum. Recreation Director Robert Basford was on hand to accept the Certificate on her behalf.

A second Certificate of Appreciation was awarded to High Springs Police Department (HSPD) Team Captain, Sgt. Adam Joy. HSPD Executive-Operations Commander Lt. Antoine Sheppard accepted the Certificate on Joy's behalf.

A third Certificate of Appreciation was awarded to High Springs Fire Department (HSFD) Team Captain Lt. Kimberly Wilson. HSFD Lt. Kevin Pearson accepted the Certificate on Wilson's behalf.

“All of our team captains went the extra mile to get the word out to the public and raise money for cancer research,” said Hewlett. “We are very proud of their efforts and wanted to let them know in some tangible way,” she said of the commendations.
