Mayor Martin presented Michele and Kashawn with citations on behalf of a grateful City, with the following text:
“Be it hereby known to all that The City of Stamford hereby offers its grateful appreciation to Michele Kulis and Kashawn Caleb Beatty for assisting a resident in need during a life-threatening situation, and saving a life on July 24, 2017. We salute your bravery and service to others.”
On Monday July 24th, at approximately 2:30 p.m., Stamford’s 911 Communication Center received a phone call from an individual who believed that his friend might hurt himself and was concerned. The caller said that his friend had been posting numerous Facebook entries about suicide and depression. Officers were sent to the individual’s location and upon arrival saw two people, Michele and Kashawn, holding on to, and talking to, the young man making sure that he was safe.
Kashawn Caleb Beatty and Michele Kulis are good citizens who intervened where necessary to help prevent a tragedy. They could have merely driven or walked by but instead they chose to intervene. And today we are recognizing them for their actions.
