Community Members to be Recognized

 

PULLMAN – Three community members will be recognized at the Pullman City Council meeting Tuesday evening for valuable contributions made to the community.

 

Kaycee Faber will be presented with the Outstanding Citizen award for actions she took on May 5, 2017. On that date, Ms. Faber fought off an attacker who had followed her home, forced his way into her apartment, and began choking her. Ms. Faber fought back and was able to force the assailant out of her apartment. She immediately called 911 and described what occurred and her attacker. Officers detained the subject nearby and the subject was arrested after being positively identified by Ms. Faber. The actions of Kaycee Faber not only served to protect herself, but also removed from our community a person who presents a danger to the public and would likely have assaulted others less capable of defending themselves.

 

Grant Porter and Allison Schomburg will be presented with the Lifesaving Award. On May 10, 2017, Mr. Porter and Ms. Schomburg intervened with a 24-year-old subject who was attempting suicide by standing on a chair and hanging himself from a basketball hoop. They were able to talk the subject down from the chair and engaged him in conversation until the police arrived. Officers confirmed the subject was in need of a mental health evaluation and the subject was transported to the hospital. The immediate actions of Grant Porter and Allison Schomburg, and their willingness to get involved, very likely saved a life.

 

The awards will be presented:

Date: Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Time: 7:00 p.m.

Location: Pullman City Council Chambers, 325 SE Paradise St, Pullman, WA 99163
