She may be leaving, but her impact and legacy will live on.
Deputy Heaverin worked at Rodgers Middle School and was "instrumental" in creating a food pantry there for students in need and facing food insecurity, Hillsborough County Schools says.
On Friday, Deputy Heaverin transitioned to a new role with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, which meant leaving her position at the school.
To let her know of her lasting impact on the school, students came together to give her a surprise.
The school district says they surprised Heaverin with 160 boxes of cereal donated in her name to two non-profits in Hillsborough County.
"These students learned so much about giving from Deputy Heaverin, and it clearly won't end after she leaves," the district said in a release.
