Aaron Boyce, a former standout football and basketball player at Kentwood High School, has been named the 2019 Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority Firefighter of the Year.
Boyce was one of several employees honored at the Puget Sound Fire virtual awards presentation on Oct. 16. The ceremony typically is held earlier in the year but COVID-19 postponed the event and caused it to be presented in a virtual format.
“Firefighter Aaron Boyce was nominated by multiple peers,” according to a Puget Sound Fire media release. “Firefighter Boyce is acknowledged as an individual who embodies those characteristics and skills which exemplify excellence in firefighting and emergency medical services, as well as promoting and nurturing excellence within his team and department."
