Lt. King Receives Letter of Commendation

April 10, 2018

Lt. Heath King, a Cherokee County Firefighter, received a Letter of Commendation on April 6th from Cherokee County Fire Chief, Tim Prather. The letter congratulated King and his crew, Jeremy Simmons and Mark Karnbauch for assisting a youth member of our community that may someday become a part of Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services.

According to Chief Prather, “I received a “thank you” letter from Coach Joel Schubert, of the Creekview High School boys’ lacrosse team. The thank you was in regards to a request from his office to help a student, Parker Lindsay of Creekview, with a senior project. The coach reported that Parker has interest to become a firefighter. I understand that you along with two other personnel assisted Parker with his senior project on short notice because of a last minute effort for Parker to get it complete. Coach Schubert indicated that you genuinely provided the needed assistance and was highly impressed with the commitment you displayed while assisting and serving our community.” Prather went on to say “thank you” for a job well done.

Congratulations to Lt. King and his crew for their commitment of helping the youth of our community.
