The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and Blue Bell Ice Cream dropped in on Royal Palm Beach High School Principal Jesus Armas and Darryll Schwartz to award the school with its first-place “turkey trophy,” Blue Bell ice cream for all to enjoy, and a Sheriff for a Day award sponsored by Sheriff Ric Bradshaw. The high school collected more than 2,200 food items to help with the 2012 Unified Food Drive, which fed more than 310 families and helped stock four local food pantries during the Thanksgiving holiday. H.L. Johnson Elementary School won the second-place award, and Principal Sharon Hench, staff and students were thrilled to take the trophy and ice cream. Other participating schools were the Ideal School, Glades Day School, and Royal Palm Beach, Cypress Trails, Jerry Thomas, Limestone Creek and Birkshire elementary schools. The PBSO thanks the schools and WRMF for helping with the turkeys.
