MADISON – Today, Officer Tracy Burbach of Wauwatosa received a Hometown Hero award from the Wisconsin State Assembly as “First Responder of the Year” for the 14th Assembly District. A ceremony by the Wisconsin State Assembly was held today at the State Capitol to honor the first responders across the state.

“Officer Tracy Burbach serves the city of Wauwatosa with honor and distinction as a School Resource Officer, and has been nominated by citizens of the 14th Assembly District for the honor of the First Responder of the Year. She is a staple in Wauwatosa School District culture — she’s proactive in building relationships with students, engages in classroom activities daily, and encourages students with her positive and supportive demeanor.

“Officer Tracy makes herself vulnerable to students with her honesty and humility, setting an example for students that cannot be replicated, and makes those around her strive to be their best self by simply striving to be hers every single day. She is the standard of which “To Serve and Protect” is defined. My gratitude to Longfellow Middle School Principal Seth Larson for recommending Officer Tracy for this award.

“As other first responders from across Wisconsin were recognized today in the State Capitol with a Hometown Hero Award for their service and sacrifice, including Officer Tracy. On behalf of the Wisconsin State Assembly, I am thrilled to recognize Officer Tracy Burbach as the First Responder of the Year for the 14th Assembly District in recognition of her selfless dedication and service to our community.”
