The Citizen Commendable Action Challenge Coin is given by an Officer of the Cape Coral Police Department to a civilian that performs an extraordinary act(s) or in the recognition of exemplary behavior.

School Resource Officer Ed Schilff presented a Citizen Commendable Action Coin to a citizen at Cape Elementary. SRO Schilff’s submission - “Greg Skiff has been a volunteer at Cape Elementary for several years. Greg volunteers basically five (5) days a week assisting students during parent drop-off specifically focusing on the vehicles with the special needs students. Greg will assist with special need students helping them out of the vehicles and walking them to their specific locations.

After parent drop-off, Greg assists the kindergarten classes with various tasks to include reading to students, working with sight words and other educational work. Greg also helps out with volunteer work outside of school hours.

Greg is definitely an asset to the school with his positive actions making this community a better place. It is difficult to put in words Greg’s impact on the school, teachers, and parents and how much of an asset he has become. His role as a volunteer goes above and beyond school staffing expectations.”
