Chief Suckling Receives Distinguished Awards
  By Donna RhoDes
ALEXANDRIA – This spring Alexandria Police Chief David Suckling received two dis- tinguished awards for his work in substance abuse and the safety of children in the Newfound Area School District.
The New Hampshire School Administrators Association pre- sented the first award on May 13. Suckling was nominated for the Champions for Children-Lakes Region award on the recommen- dation of Newfound Regional High School Assistant Principal Chris Ulrich and the district Superintendent Pierre Couture for his work in ensuring that stu- dents of all ages throughout the district are able to go to school in a safe environment. Presenting
his award were not only Ulrich and Couture but N.H. Dept. of Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut and NHSAA President Dr. James Morse.
On May 27, the chief was once again recognized at the an- nual statewide summit meeting in Plymouth, which is hosted by CADY (Communities for Alco- hol and Drug-Free Youth). With his family on hand for the event, CADY Director Deb Naro pre- sented the chief with the Car- ole J. Estes Community Leader Award, given out in honor of Estes whose lifelong commit- ment was to bettering the lives of children and the community by promoting healthy lifestyles. Suckling received the award for not only his role as a Police Chief

and EMT, but for his continued support for the students of New- found Area School District in not only academic access but sub- stance prevention as well.
Residents of both Danbury, where Suckling served as a police officer, chief and EMT for many years, and Alexandria where he
now oversees the police depart- ment and safety issues of that community, all offered congrat- ulations on social media pages. Among the posts was one fitting comment from Belknap County Sheriff Bill Wright.
“Excellent job Chief Suck- ling! You continue to lead the
way in crime fighting,” he wrote. The Town of Alexandria was excited for his recognition at the CADY Summit as well, writing, “Congratulations Chief. We're honored that we could celebrate with you and work with you on keeping our youngest of citizens
