SkillsUSA members at the Alliance Academy for Innovation in Cumming, Ga., hosted a breakfast to honor their school’s resource officer for National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.  They decided to extend their gratitude for local law enforcement by inviting the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, too. The school offers courses in healthcare, firefighting and criminal justice, all of which work in conjunction with the county’s sheriff’s department, fire department and local healthcare professionals. Students also wanted to recognize the honorees’ diligent efforts and  contributions to the community and the school.
