Students honor fallen officers

Kennedria Jackson ’19 signs one of the posters for fallen officers Justin Martin and Tony Beminio. The posters will be sent to the Des Moines and Urbandale police stations.

After Des Moines Sgt. Tony Beminio and Urbandale officer Justin Martin were shot and killed Nov. 2, the community was left grieving. Urbandale schools closed for the day, some Johnston students stayed home from school and some even left during the day to be home with family.

Students gathered in the science hallway during the school day to sign posters in memoriam of Beminio and Martin, which will later be distributed to the Des Moines and Urbandale police departments.
