Brandon Taylor Receives Opelika Bravery Award

During Mayor’s Remarks, I had the privilege of recognizing Brandon Taylor for his bravery and heroic actions during the Pinehurst Apartment fire several weeks ago. Brandon, a lifelong resident of Opelika, helped a mom and her two children to safety as they jumped from a second floor window. We are thankful for Brandon's quick thinking and selfless act.

I also recognized the Opelika High School Indoor Track Team for winning the State Championship for a third year in a row. There were three stand out athletes who won various individual titles – Ledamian Rowell, Jarell Stinson and Eric Watts. Congratulations Bulldogs!
