Boni Frederick Honored

A Western Kentucky social service aid, who died earlier this year in the line of duty, was honored in Owensboro, Ky., Friday, Dec. 8, 2006.

Governor Fletcher paid tribute to 67-year-old Boni Frederick who was supervising a state foster child’s visit with his mother when she was beaten to death.

The governor presented a medal honoring Fredick’s life and work, to her daughter Sandy Travis of Dixon, Ky. The medal is an Exceptional Service Award and only two other similar medals have been given since 2003.
