PONCE DE LEON, Fla. – Students in attendance of the summer WINGS (Winning Intellectually and Gaining Safety) program at Ponce de Leon Elementary School enjoyed hearing from two special guests this morning.

Eddie Eagle stopped by the school, along with Holmes County Sheriff John Tate, to speak with the children about gun safety, namely what to do should they encounter a firearm: “Stop! Don’t touch! Leave the area! Tell an adult!”

After the presentation, Eddie Eagle and Sheriff Tate took a moment to visit and take photos with the children.
