Savannah Solis, who recently gained national media attention for making hundreds of handmade thank-you cards for law enforcement officers after two NYPD Officers were slain in Brooklyn last year, will be in San Angelo next week.
Ten-year-old Savannah, of Tyler, Texas will visit the San Angelo Police Department on Tuesday, June 16, 2015 to deliver a presentation to Law Enforcement Officers. The event will take place at 10:30 a.m. in the Chief's Conference Room, 401 E. Beauregard. The event is open to the media.
Savannah's quiet admiration for law enforcement started at a young age and she and her family expressed their gratitude by delivering cupcakes to Chapel Hill Police in her church's parking lot. Upon hearing of the murders of NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, Savannah was inspired to take her message of gratitude to the next level; making hundreds of thank-you cards for New York officers as well as police throughout Texas.
Word of Savannah's message has traveled quickly and her story circulated through National Press. She has since been honored by the Texas House of Representatives and Governor Greg Abbott and she has traveled to New York, Austin, New Orleans, and London to deliver her message and cards to law enforcement.
Savannah recently started the ?Savannah Challenge? and travels to Texas schools to encourage others to make thank-you cards. To date, over 90,000 children have taken the challenge.
Savannah has continued to stay true to her mission; to honor her heroes by letting them know they are appreciated and to inspire her peers to do the same.
