The Outstanding Business Partners of the Year are:
A business partner at Apollo Elementary, the City of Titusville Fire & Emergency Services do so much to enrich the lives of Apollo students. The firemen chaperoned "The International Walk to School Day" to promote personal wellness and safety at Apollo Elementary. A presentation by Reggie Belle, Life Safety Specialist, was given to the K-6th grade students to increase fire prevention education. This presentation saved the lives of one family when the parents were rescued by their 2nd and 3rd grade children who had learned about fire safety from the firefighters. In addition, the firefighters have written books about a firefighter's life to encourage literacy with students at Apollo Elementary.
Holland Elementary has a business partnership with Robert Kurrus, owner and President of Premiere Theatres in
