9 students honored for completing Youth Police Academy program

YOUNGSTOWN — Sam Weatherly and Skyann Braun are junior high students interested in doing something to help the community.

Both Sam and Skyann figured the best way for a 13-year-old to help the community is to start by making a difference in their school. They, along with seven other students, entered the Black Knight’s Police Association Youth Police Academy to learn how to do that.

Delphine Baldwin-Casey, a retired Youngstown police officer, today handed all nine of the seventh- and eighth-grade students in the program certificates of completion and gift certificates for Subway Restaurant.

The ceremony was at Volney Rogers Academy, the middle school on the city’s West Side.
