MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. — In addition to keeping elementary schoolers safe, School Resource Officer Mulern Jean has her sights set on Olympic glory. 

On Thursday, the track athlete was set to leave to train for the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, according to WCIV. But students and staff at Laurel Hill Elementary wouldn’t let her go without a special send-off.  

Children and faculty lined up outside the school, cheering and waving flags for Jean, video from Mount Pleasant Police shows. Jean held her own Olympic torch – made with tissue paper – while taking a lap around the parking lot. A faculty member gave her a homemade gold medal and a signed Olympic flag. 

Jean is training to represent Haiti in the 100-meter hurdles, according to WCIV.

 

This morning Officer Jean was surprised by the faculty and students of Laurel Hill Primary School. There are no adequate words to express how proud we are of Officer Jean!
