Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay honored slain Yarmouth K9 Sgt. Sean Gannon Thursday night.
Gannon was posthumously presented the annual “Big of the Year” award which recognizes someone who has had a significant, positive, and lasting impact in the lives of children.
Gannon, for the past three years, was a big brother to Cape Cod 12-year old Rylee.
Rylee, Gannon’s parents, and Yarmouth Police Chief Frank Frederickson were on hand with Frederickson accepting the “Big of the Year” award on behalf of his slain officer.
