RADFORD – Dalton Intermediate School teachers Brian and Tammy Dye recently launched a new
business venture creating personalized tumblers, and the first large order they completed was a gift
tumbler to each officer and staff member of the Radford City Police Department.
The Dyes, who are married, recently launched Pono Styles and created a tumbler with a flag and cross
motif for the department. Each tumbler is personalized with the last name of the officer.
“It’s a way to say thank-you for what you do for us, keeping us safe, not just our schools but our whole
community,” said Brian Dye in presenting the tumblers to Radford City Police Department Chief Brian
Dodson recently at the school.
“Strong partnerships are formed on common values, a willingness to collaborate, mutual respect, and
communication,” said Dodson about the gift and accompanying thank-you cards handcrafted by students.
“All the characteristics mentioned is what describes our partnership with the Radford City Public
Schools. We are very appreciative of the gifts and support of all the students, teachers, and staff.”
