Yesterday was the Chick-fil-A Employee Banquet and Christmas Party at the Club Westerner. Every year at this event, Chick-fil-A owner,  David Murphy, invites one of Victoria's finest to deliver the 'secret' ballot box to the podium right before the awards ceremony.  This year, Officer Lehnert was chosen for this task.  As he walks the ballot box up, the 'Bad Boys' theme starts to play making the crowd chuckle. THAT IS HOW TO MAKE AN ENTRANCE.

Lehnert thought that was the only reason he was there. It was not! David Murphy stopped him at the podium and had a few words for him.  "Chick-fil-A Victoria has a deep appreciation for law enforcement, first responders, and military also. Every year we have someone we would like to select as our everyday hero of the year" Murphy continues "Jeff we want to reward you with Chick-fil-A for a year, you have your own special ID." Officer Lehnert was nominated by a Secret Santa. It was a great way to start the night.
