School Resource Officer Philip Jones Recognized by the Duplin County Board of Education
Chairman Brent Davis presented School Resource Officer Philip Jones with an Outstanding Service Award.
KENANSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA- August 7, 2018- Officer Philip Jones was recognized during tonight’s meeting of the Duplin County Board of Education for his bravery and selflessness. Chairman Brent Davis presented Jones with a plaque on behalf of the Board.
“Tonight it is an honor to recognize one of our SROs, Philip Jones. Officer Jones was recently awarded the Hank Snyder “Beyond the Call of Duty Award” from the NC Association of School Resource Officers,” said Davis. “Last October he stopped to assist a stranded school bus filled with Pre-K students. As he exited his patrol car he was struck by an oncoming vehicle and sustained very serious injuries and had to be airlifted to Wilmington. He is to be commended for his bravery and selflessness and Duplin County Schools will be forever indebted to him for his actions on this day.”
Davis commended all School Resource Officers, many of whom were in attendance, for their dedication to students and staff and for playing an integral role in helping ensure schools provide a safe environment conducive to learning.
