When Dayvon Johnson woke up one Thursday morning this month, he never expected to go to sleep that night being named a hero. At school that morning, the 11-year-old witnessed a classmate choking and stepped in to perform the Heimlich maneuver, saving the child’s life. Later that same day, Dayvon was on his way home from wrestling practice when he spotted a house on fire. He jumped out of his mom’s car to escort an elderly woman from the burning building. Muskogee Public Schools awarded Dayvon with several awards to honor his heroic day, including a certificate that makes him an honorary member of the sheriff’s office. Way to go, Dayvon!
