Bald Knob’s school resource officer, SRO Collin Ervin, received a commendation for his swift actions that saved a life. On the fateful day of May 15th, while on the campus, he heard distress calls for help. Following the voice, he discovered a woman shouting in the LaView Street area. Without wasting any time, he dashed to the location to find a male individual with a deep gash in his right arm.

Ervin's quick thinking and exceptional training came to play, as he kept the victim calm while stemming the bleeding until the ambulance arrived. His heroics did not go unnoticed as the Bald Knob Police Department recognized his exceptional service by awarding him with a certificate of commendation during a city council meeting on Monday, June 5, 2023.
SRO Collin Ervin, your bravery, dedication, and selflessness have set a high standard for those around you. Thank you for your service and making a positive impact on our community.
