Public safety employees, a teacher and student essay writers were honored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6949 at its annual Community Recognition and Awards Night on May 24.

Family and friends of the honorees and the VFW enjoyed dinner and fellowship before the ceremony, held at the Veterans’ Memorial Center.

Lt Glenn Glasgow presented the Police Officer of the Year Award to Sean Bellamy and the Public Safety Dispatcher of the Year Award to Shawn Hayden.

Fire Chief Nathan Trauernicht honored Graham Northrop and Steve Phillips as the city of Davis’ Firefighters of the Year and Gina Updegraff and Kevin Fritz as the UC Davis Firefighters of the Year.

Jay Brookman, commander of the VFW post, congratulated Eric Jacobson for being named Teacher of the Year. Jacobson, an eighth-grade history teacher at Emerson Junior High School, was introduced by Emerson Principal Alicia Cummings.

Brookman also presented certificates and cash awards to student winners of the post’s Patriot’s Pen essay contest — Justin Dillard-Telm, first place, and Malina Janzen, runner-up — and the Voice of Democracy essay contest — Kailey Smith.

Next year’s awards ceremony will take place in conjunction with the Sweethearts Pancake Breakfast in February and will include recognition of a UC Davis police officer and a local Veteran of the Year, Brookman said.
