First Grade Class Makes Get Well Cards For Injured Deputy

SCOTT COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18)– A Scott County Sheriff’s Deputy injured in a deadly gunfight with a serial robber is getting lots of support from first graders at Stamping Ground Elementary.

In Ms. Duncan’s first grade class, carefully crafted Get Well cards were made for injured Scott County Sheriff’s Deputy Jaime Morales.

Every card was colored with a young, bright imagination, and included messages of hope and healing from six and seven-year-olds.

“My card is a butterfly going to get nectar and inside, he’s brave and balloons. From Renae to Officer Morales,” said first-grader Renae Schwartz.

Morales has visited their school.

The kids had a message for Morales, “Thanks for keeping us safe” and “I hope you feel better”.

All of the cards were hand-delivered to the Sheriff’s Department Friday in a care basket.
