During challenging times, or even in day to day life, ordinary people are stepping up in extraordinary ways to give back to the places they call home. ATCU knows we’re at our best when we #givetogether and we’re proud to share efforts that strengthen and uplift the communities so important to our mission.
Our Community Hero award was created to shed light on all the positive things happening right now in Northeast Alabama. In addition to these highlights, Alabama Teachers also gifts our recipients in recognition of their heroic efforts.
In partnership with WEIS Radio, our Community Hero for the Cherokee County area for the 3rd quarter is Mr. Michael Wynn. Officer Wynn has worked with the Cedar Bluff Police Department for one year. Prior to his career with the police department, he worked as a correctional officer at Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department. He says that his mother was his biggest influence when he decided to become a police officer. Wynn stated, “[My Mom] was also a police officer and also single parent, she established a sense of service honor and duty into me and my siblings at a young age and I hope to be able to do the same for my children. She definitely set the example for me to follow as a law enforcement officer and a parent.”
Congratulations and thank you, Officer Wynn, for your dedication to the Cherokee County Community. You service is greatly appreciated! #LearnTogether
