Master Trooper Hershel Smith – Louisiana State Police
In August of last year, Master Trooper Hershel Smith learned about a young boy from his home parish of Vernon. The boy had never had his own bicycle. Touched by the circumstance and understanding how much a bicycle can mean to a growing boy, M/T Smith made a decision to act. Using his own money, M/T Smith purchased a bicycle and delivered it to the young boy in Vernon parish. As you can imagine, M/T Smith made a new friend and opened the door to an exciting new world of play for this young boy. M/T Smith’s generosity and spirit of caring is absolutely wonderful.
