All across America, men and women from many walks of life took time out of their busy schedules to share their professions with our nation's youth during the 2004 Great American Teach-In. Troopers from all four districts in Troop C were on hand to help with the event, fulfilling the Florida Highway Patrol's mission of Courtesy, Service, and Protection for hundreds of school age children and staff.

Campaign hats, crash pictures, Camaros, and FHP coloring books were a big hit with the children and teens at the annual event. The highlight of the day was when our troopers shared their personal experiences with the children, letting them know what it is like to be a law enforcement officer in Florida. The troopers also took this opportunity to speak with the children about traffic safety, the importance of wearing seat belts and watching out for traffic while riding their bikes or crossing the street. Troopers also reminded the children to be kind to one another and to respect rules and laws. Troopers talked to the teens about the importance of safe driving behavior, obeying traffic laws, and not drinking and driving. From the smallest kindergartener to the seniors in area high schools, there was a message for everyone.

The following Troopers and FHP Auxiliary members are commended for volunteering their time to share themselves with the children, and for proudly representing the Florida Highway Patrol during this year's Great American Teach-In.
