  • "Blinding With Kindness" to Launch Firebird Ambassadors Program

    “We are greeting the students and encouraging them to be kind to one another and have a great day as they enter the building for school,” said Teresa Murphy, sheriff deputy and Falcon Zone school resource officer. “It’s also the first event for the new Firebird Ambassadors program." Murphy, a 20-year veteran with the sheriff’s office, has been serving as a school resource officer in Falcon Zone for nearly six years. Working with students in grades K-12 has inspired Murphy and Kristyn Nordeman, fellow sheriff deputy and SRO, to create a new club to promote a positive message to the school community. “The Firebird Ambassador program will inspire students to cultivate kindness and gratitude,” said Murphy. “The goal is to develop a student culture where everyone feels appreciated and recognizes compassion, honesty, and simple acts of kindness.”
