Neighborhood Heroes

Two Spring Branch ISD Police Department officers were recognized recently by the area Memorial Super Neighborhood organization for police work that helped lead to the arrest of two teenage suspects for deliberately setting several fires.

At a Memorial Super Neighborhood meeting on March 25, Super Neighborhood President Greg Sergesketter presented SBISD Police Officers Brad Farley and Matt Krajnovich with the LEO Award for outstanding law enforcement work. Both police officers worked in cooperation with the Houston Fire Department Arson Investigation Team to track down a 19-year-old suspect and juvenile in early 2013.

The two arrests put to an end a dangerous situation in west Houston that included neighborhoods near several of our SBISD campuses – Stratford High, Spring Forest Middle and Meadow Wood Elementary schools.

Memorial Super Neighborhood (MSN) is a City of Houston-sponsored group that was established to help tens of thousands of residents living between Interstate 10 to the north, Buffalo Bayou to the south, Texas 6 to the west and the incorporated villages of Hedwig, Bunker Hill and Piney Point to the east.

According to the Super Neighborhood, the organization and its programs enable residents, civic organizations, institutions and businesses to work together and to identify, plan and set priorities to address the specific needs and concerns in west Houston neighborhoods.

Regular meetings of this group are held on the fourth Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in The Gate of Memorial Drive United Methodist Church, located at 13194 Memorial Drive, near the TJ Maxx commercial store.
