Even though I never had the privilege to meet Mr. Miyares, I am blessed to work with his daughter. Here at our school, we will always remember our fallen officers and pray for their family. We lift up all of our officers out in this broken world. We are extremely grateful to God for their life; as ultimately they give their life for our safety.
You will never be forgotten!

God bless you all !!!
