A tremendous honor was recently bestowed on our very own Fort Pierce Westwood High School Principal Mr. Joseph Lezeau.

Last week during the high school’s JROTC Awards Ceremony, an impressive number of cadets earned awards for high academic accomplishments and were recognized for their citizenship, leadership, and community service.  At the close of the ceremony, CSM Frederico Dottin presented Mr. Lezeau with the Commander’s Award for Civilian Service.

The Commander’s Award for Civilian Service is an honorary award presented by the United States Department of the Army to civilian employees for commendable service or achievement. The Commander’s Award for Civilian Service is comparable to the military Army Commendation Medal.

In recognition of Mr. Lezeau’s commitment to a positive school culture, his public support of the JROTC program, and as an honored recipient of this award, he was recognized at the April School Board Meeting.
