Honoring the Heroism of
Two Local Children

Anna and Peter Kayhart Honored

At the Granton Elementary Christmas Concert last Thursday, Anna and Peter Kayhart were recognized for acting bravely in a scary situation. 

On Nov. 8, an intruder entered their home, but instead of panicking, they remained calm: Anna was able to escape and get help. 
The two children gave a great description after the event that helped police to identify and arrest the intruder, said Patrol Sgt. Marty Schwantes, who presented the award.
“How cool they remained, and what they did, we have not seen adults that would have reacted in a
  situation like that,” said Schwantes. 
Anna and Peter were presented with plaques made by DJ Metalworks of Withee that read, “In recognition of exceptional valor and courage.”
