LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Students at Stonewall Elementary School spent Friday morning hosting a "First Responders Breakfast" to thank and honor our local first responders.
Every student played a role in the event. Some created artwork and videos. Others performed skits and dances.
"I like first responders," fifth-grader Raja Lewis said. "Because they save people if they're hurt. They can like rush them to the E.R. if they need to."
Several first responders at the event wore two hats: first responder and parent.
"It's really nice to see their support," Lt. Jeremy Tuttle said. "A lot of them see you as heroes. A lot of them want to do your job when they grow up. We want to build that positive relationship. Let them see that this is a job. But they also see that we're also fathers and things of that nature too. A lot of us have children that did this so it's nice to see that as well."
One performer said she hopes that first responders in Lexington know that students at Stonewall Elementary are always rooting for them.
"I hope they feel that they are honored in that they are always going to be there for us," Briauna Musgrove said. "Even if it's tough. If people don't like them and stuff. We're always going to have a place for you at Stonewall."
