BLACKSBURG (WSLS 10) - Anthony Wilson, chief of the Town of Blacksburg Police Department, and Kevin Foust, chief of the Virginia Tech Police Department, will receive an award for their effort in establishing the 'No Hokie Left Behind campaign', officials say. 

The two will receive the 'Alfred C. Payne Service Award' from the Alpha Omicron Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa during a ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 28, in the War Memorial Chapel at Virginia Tech.

The annual award recognizes an individual or individuals who have performed exceptional service to the greater Blacksburg community. 

University officials say 'No Hokie Left Behind' is a collaborative safety effort that encourages students to watch out for each other in town and on campus. The message is simple: "Go with Friends, Stay with Friends, and Leave with Friends."
