Wednesday, February 6, 2019
Phil Bonn was presented with a Citizenship Award by Mountain Home Chief of Police, Scott Conner, for his help in making sure a four year old girl got home safe in December.

On December 18th four-year-old Emily decided to go to school with her brother. Once her brother got on the school bus Emily started to wander around and thatís when Philip Bonn saw her and thought something wasnít right, due to there not being any schools around where she was walking. Bonn picked Emily up and brought her to Hacker Middle School and spoke with a Student Resource Officer who took Emily to the Police Station. While there, Police Chief Scott Conner took to social media to try and find little Emilyís family and it worked. Emily and her mother were reunited after a few hours of her leaving home.

During the Mountain Home City Council meeting on Jan. 28, Bonn was recognized by Chief Conner for his outstanding citizenship for his observations and quick action to help save the child who had wandered away from home in the morning hours in freezing temperatures. Mayor Rich Sykes also thanked Bonn on behalf of the city.
