Hermon community. Click here for that story The Washington Parish Council established the Ronda Sylvest Varnado Memorial Award that recognizes acts of heroic and selfless acts and bravery performed in the line of duty and Ronda was later named the first recipient of the award. Click here and click here for those related stories.
