Ector County Independent School District Police Department’s Lt. Jeff Daniels, center, leads The Odessa student Crime Stoppers. WhatsApp Local NewsEducation Teens help take a bite out of crime OCA top 2 were ESL students Two state Crime Stoppers Ambassador spots are now held by Odessa students, which an Ector County Independent School District Police Department officer says is a big deal.Aaron McKown, a 16-year-old sophomore at OCTECHS has been an ambassador since sixth grade. Skylar Hubbard, a 16-year-old Permian High School sophomore, was recently selected.The Crime Stoppers Ambassador Program is a student-based leadership program for Texas youth involved in Crime Stoppers.The ambassador program includes 12 students are who carefully chosen and tasked with setting leadership standards of excellence among their peer groups, acting as role models on their campuses and in their communities and are required to complete a series of projects over the course of a calendar year.McKown was the youngest student ever appointed to the ambassadors, Lt. Jeff Daniels said.The students are picked at the Texas Campus Crime Stoppers State Conference, which was in Houston this year.By the end of the conference, Hubbard said they have to give two speeches in public, write an article to go into the newspaper and log eight hours of community service, such as working during Bustin’ for Badges, which supports the local police department, or Bad Boy Blast that supports local fire departments.Students in the ambassadors are from across the state. When Hubbard interviewed, Daniels said 27 youngsters applied for seven positions. He added both students have done an outstanding job representing ECISD and the City of Odessa.“We’re extremely proud to have that type of recognition for Odessa because it’s not based on population size or area, it’s based on the quality of the individuals who interview. For us to land two out of 12 spots is huge. We’re the only program I believe right now with multiple ambassadors,” Daniels said.Once you are elected as an ambassador, Hubbard said you can fill it until they graduate, you can leave of your own choosing, or if a disciplinary action occurs.During the state conference, ambassadors introduce all speakers, and at every class change ambassadors make sure attendees books are stamped to verify they were there, Daniels said.Hubbard said they are supposed to be able to answer all the questions people ask them.“They’re given multiple jobs throughout the conference to make sure that it runs (smoothly),” Daniels said.Both boys have family members who have been, or are, in law enforcement.McKown said he wanted to be an ambassador because he thought it would help him learn to make public presentations and lead. He added that he thinks he wants to become a police officer, but he doesn’t know what kind yet.“It just teaches really good skills that I would be able to utilize later in life,” McKown said.He added that there is always so much to learn from every state conference.Hubbard agreed that it would help him with leadership skills. He is not sure if he wants to go into law enforcement, but it is definitely an option.“And I really wanted to make a difference in my community,” Hubbard said. “My biggest issue at school is about how police officers are being viewed in a negative way with all the pop culture that is making kids view them this way and I would want to change that.”More Information By admin – March 13, 2018 Home Local News Education Teens help take a bite out of crime Previous articleCHAPMAN: Trump’s North Korea gambit could be a big deal, for good or illNext articleFive things you need to know today, March 13 admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Noel earns award 23rd Annual Texas Crime Stoppers Conference. ECISD District Police.

NORTH AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE: Jackalopes win in overtime

first_img For the Odessa Jackalopes, third time was the charm. Playing in overtime for the third consecutive game, the Jackalopes were able to get the win as Alex Konovalov’s goal gave Odessa a 2-1 victory over Lone Star Thursday at Ector County Coliseum. Playing against the North American Hockey League South Division leaders, the Jackalopes moved to 5-5-2 for the season. The Brahmas fell to 13-3-1. The Jackalopes were coming off two consecutive losses to Shreveport last week, both in overtime. “I thought we came out with a lot of energy,” Odessa coach Jason Fortier said. “We had the puck in their zone for most of the third period. It was a pretty physical affair. It’s the way we want to play at home in front of our fans.” The Jackalopes finished with 31 shots total while the Brahmas had 24. “It was really special to get the win tonight,” Konovalov said. “The crowd was really buzzing tonight. It was great to see the guys come through. We showed a lot of resilience and courage.” Neither team could do much at the start of the game as the Jackalopes and the Brahmas were both held scoreless in the first period. The Jackalopes had numerous opportunities to score and nearly closed out the opening period with the lead but couldn’t get on the board and Odessa did manage to outshoot the Brahmas 17-6 in the first 20 minutes. The Jackalopes kept things pretty disciplined early in the game. Lone Star had two penalties in the first period while Odessa wouldn’t get penalized until seven minutes into the second period when Isaiah Huempfner was sent to the box for a holding. The Brahmas nearly scored on the power play but were denied as Odessa goalie Connor Hasley deflected the shot and kept the game leveled. The Jackalopes’ patience would eventually pay off when Lucas Coon scored with 2:27 left in the second period for a 1-0 lead with an assist by Ben Doherty. Odessa spent the first half of the third period by fending off several chances from Lone Star. As the final minutes continued tick away, the Jackalopes continued hang to their one-goal advantage even as the Brahmas kept up the pressure. It wasn’t until there were four minutes left in the game when Lone Star found its equalizer when Andrew DeCarlo scored with an assist from Stefan Miklakos and Mitchell Digby. The scored remained tied at 1-1 as the third period expired and both teams went into overtime. However, the Jackalopes came out firing in overtime and it wasn’t long until Konovalov’s goal came, scoring two minutes into the period. “I think we’ve had that in our last three overtimes,” Fortier said. “We had a penalty shot and our guys did a good job of being resilient. They still believe they can win games even when giving up leads in games.” WhatsApp Twitter SportsJackalopesLocal News Facebook Twitter NORTH AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE: Jackalopes win in overtime Facebookcenter_img TAGS  WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – December 17, 2020 Previous articleHIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Castillo enjoys contributing to Permian’s rushing attackNext articleMedical Center Health System confirmed to receive 2,500 COVID-19 vaccine doses Digital AIM Web Support Pinterest Pinterestlast_img read more
