Full Florissant Contingent Present When Officer Mike Vernon Receives Medal of Valor
Mayor Thomas P. Schneider, Councilmen Pat Stinnett and Joe Eagan, the entire Command Staff and over 50 City employees attended the 43rd Annual Medal of Valor Awards ceremony held at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
Officer Michael Vernon received the Medal of Valor award for his courage, unwillingness to give up and intent on assisting officers despite his life threatening injuries he sustained on May 28.
He was among 25 area officers awarded for their actions. The crowd of nearly 500 people gave Officer Vernon a standing ovation after he received his award. Sandy Miller from Fox 2 was the emcee. Guest speaker was Duane Benton US Circuit Court Judge, Eighth District Court of Appeals.
Officer Vernon and Florissant city officials also appeared on Fox 2 News in the Morning last Friday when it was broadcast live from in front of Florissant City Hall.
