NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. - A local teen received a top award from Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper on Wednesday.
Abigail Cardwell, a student at Hilliard Middle-Senior High School, was awarded as the "Top Female Cadet" for her hard work and dedication to the Northeast Florida Camp Cadet program.
Northeast Florida Camp Cadet is a group that teaches students the importance of teamwork, discipline and courage. The group also gives teens a better understanding of law enforcement activities.
Cardwell will be going into ninth grade this fall and plans to attend West Point Military Academy when she graduates High School.
