VALDOSTA — Governor Nathan Deal had a letter hand-delivered to the Westside Elementary teacher involved in stopping a kidnapping from the schools campus.

Ginger Taylor received the letter Tuesday from the Governor’s Education Outreach Coordinator, Pam Williams, which thanked her for her “bravery and commitment to public education”.

Taylor noticed two men attempting to take a child from the playground of the elementary school a couple of weeks ago.  When she confronted the men, they shoved her aside and took the child.  Taylor noted a description of the men, notified the school’s resource officer.  Here attention helped authorities locate the child before he was taken out of the area.

The kidnappers were the estranged father of the child and his accomplice, who had flown from Mississippi to take the child with them.  Both men were arrested and the child returned to his mother.

After presenting the letter, Williams also toured the school campus before returning to Atlanta.
