Officer-for-the-Day Auction Winner Keeps Campus Safe

September 30, 2020
By FWC Story Team

Earlier this week, our campus was doubly safe as Ethan, our 2019 Auction Winner of this "Cardinal Classic Experience", served his shift as "Officer-for-the-Day"! 

Our campus security officer, Officer Jim, was Ethan's mentor and guide throughout the day. To ensure the safety of our campus during this special day, our campus had yet another full-time security officer on campus on official duty so Officer Jim could be fully focused on giving Officer Ethan the best experience!

They patrolled the entire campus, visited each division, checked on the Cardinal Store, and patrolled the perimeter of the campus in Officer Jim's patrol car. After lunch, Officer Ethan got to visit our security firm's command headquarters where Officer Ethan received official recognition from the President & CEO of our security firm. Ethan was also presented an official security officer badge from our security firm that Officer Jim got to pin on Ethan. You can view the slideshow below to see pictures of this ceremony at the security firm's command center in North Richland Hills. To wrap up the day (after a well-deserved snack), Officer Ethan was asked to give a campus security report to Head of School, Dr. Misty Overman, and our three division heads. Officer Ethan ensured everyone that the campus was 100% secure!

Last year was the first year to offer this "Cardinal Classic Experience" at November's Dinner & Auction which raised over $200,000! The proceeds empowered the school to purchase brand new 21st-century collaborative desks for every classroom on campus. Thank you to Matthew and Chelsie of north Fort Worth for their generosity toward FWC in securing this experience for their 1st Grader, Ethan. Many other "Cardinal Classic Experiences" were also bid on and will be featured on the website and on social media throughout the year.
