North Lamar’s Student Crime Stoppers brought home the Productivity Award from the 20th Annual Texas Campus Crime Stoppers Conference in McAllen, Texas on February 2-4.  The award recognizes the student organization having the most cases cleared and greatest dollar recovery for the student population of 501 to 2,500. 

“This is an award that shows how effective the NLHS Crime Stoppers organization is at our school by the Office of the Governor,” said NLHS Student Crime Stoppers sponsor Billy Copeland.

Officer Mike Boaz, also a sponsor of the student organization, was there to see North Lamar’s students shine.  “While at the conference, NL’s Crime Stoppers president Erin Boaz was interviewed by the local news and Tanner Liles was sworn in as an ambassador for the state Crime Stoppers board.”  In addition, Melody Shannon and Kristian Sutherlun were chosen out of 50 applicants for the state board.

Student Crime Stoppers who represented North Lamar at the state conference were Erin Boaz, Savanah Bishop, Tanner Liles, Korbin Hamner, Melody Shannon, Chad Hutchings, Kristian Sutherlun, Sydney Beshirs, Sarah Gentry, Danielle Risinger and Nely Torrez.
