SHEEPSHEAD BAY -

A group of Sheepshead Bay High School students took the time to say thank you to their school safety officer.

The students made a video for Fred Eilam and gave him a crown to show him how much he is appreciated. Eilam has been the guard at the school for more than 25 years.

They worked with the media group Unsung Heroes to create the video.

Students told News 12 that Eilam always had a kind word and good advice about the importance of staying in school.
