Our Annual Touch A Truck event is a one day family event designed to give children the opportunity to interact with the people and vehicles that protect and build our community. With tremendous support from local fire departments and businesses, we have close to 40 vehicles on site. Children are able to sit on and pretend to drive firetrucks, boom trucks, rescue vehicles, plow trucks, tow trucks and recovery vehicles, just to name a few.

We hope to honor his life by giving this award to a student like Johnathan who along with dedication to academics, enjoys extracurricular activities and clubs with enthusiasm, has a positive impact in the community and encourages others and fellow Spartans to be their very best.
