Kiwanis Club accepting nominations for ‘Nick Tullier Service Above Self’ award

BATON ROUGE — The Denham Springs Kiwanis Club is accepting nominations for the “Nick Tullier Service Above Self Award.” The annual award is given to a “deserving individual, department, or unit that has placed the needs of others over the needs of their own, without desiring praise, thought, or reward for their actions.”

Corporal Nick Tullier was the first recipient of the “Service Above Self” award in 2019, during the Denham Springs Kiwanis Club’s annual Peace Officer of the Year program.

Tullier was shot 3 times on July 16, 2016 as he answered a call to protect and serve. Doctors told his family he wouldn’t survive.  Against all odds, Tullier lived another six years inspiring so many in his community.

The award was initially called the ‘Service Above Self Award’. It was later rebranded to Nick Tullier Service Above Self Award.

“To honor his fight and bravery, we felt it only natural to create an award that would speak to his legacy.” stated in the Kiwanis Club announcement.

Tullier served the Sheriff’s Office for more than 18 years. He is survived by his parents, James and Mary and his sons Gage and Trenton. 

Nominations will be open until Friday, May 3rd. The award will be announced May 23rd at the Denham Springs Kiwanis Peace Officer of the Year luncheon. Submit your nominations now.
