TOMAHAWK – A Tomahawk High School (THS) student was recently recognized for his efforts to promote fire safety.

Last month, Angelus Lovelace was presented with a T-shirt and a certificate recognizing him as an honorary member of the School District of Tomahawk’s Fire Safety Crew.

Lovelace was honored for his work with School District of Tomahawk Building and Grounds Director Arland Wingate.

Wingate explained that previously, Lovelace had feelings of fear and anxiety about the district’s fire alarms. After doing his own research to learn more about the alarms, including their decibel levels, Lovelace began giving Wingate a hand with some fire safety-related tasks.

Together, the two have checked the district’s fire extinguishers every month, and Lovelace pulls the alarm for the district’s fire drills.

“Now he looks forward to it, instead of being afraid of it,” Wingate stated.

Wingate said getting involved with school safety helped Lovelace conquer his fears, noting that Lovelace even wrote a book about the district’s fire drills.

“He’s a special kid with a big heart, and it was a lot of fun getting to watch him grow over the last couple years,” Wingate said.
