Parkside Elementary School second-grader Tavian George receives a surprise honor at the school for his part in leading his siblings to safety during a fire at their home. Tavian’s mother, Trista Poole, was able to remove his toddler brother from the upstairs of the home. Tavian assisted his younger sister and brother out of their burning home just minutes before it became engulfed in flames. During the assembly, Tavian was presented with a plaque honoring him as a hero by Cumberland Fire Marshal Lt. Shannon Adams. From the left are interim Principal Shannon Imes; Adams; Edward Root, school board president; Tavian; and Devante Ross, Tavian’s best friend.
