The Farmersville Fire Department, which comprises a paid staff of two and a host of volunteers, has bestowed its annual awards for jobs well done to three of those volunteers.
The Firefighter of the Year is Justin Bates; the First Responder of the Year is Nathan Hawkins; and the Rookie of the Year is Bowen McClure. All three were honored by their fellow volunteers who decided that they stood out as the best among them.
In addition, the Farmersville Police Department has announced its Police Officer of the Year. It is Officer Maggie Olvera, who was selected by the police department’s supervisory staff, according to Police Chief Mike Sullivan.
