City of Bolivar Honors Hometown Heroes

Retired Assistant Chief and Volunteer Firefighter Emmett Bolyard was presented with a framed copy of the House of Representatives Joint Resolution No. 167 honoring his fifty-five years of service to the Bolivar Fire Department by Representative Johnny Shaw on June 14.
The resolution was adopted on February 25, 2019, and was presented to the House of Representatives by Representative Ron Gant and Senator Dolores Gresham.
The resolution reflected “It is fitting that the members of the General Assembly honor those individuals who have performed with uncommon devotion and enthusiasm throughout their years of public service.”
Also honored as “Hometown Heroes” were two police officers and two firemen who were part of a live saving situation this February in Bolivar.
