Representatives Finnie (L) and Severin (R), with Hamilton County Sheriff Robert Crow.

There was a pretty big deal going on in Hamilton County. Sheriff Robert Crow held his 30th graduation!

Sheriff Crow, to my knowledge, is the longest running D.A.R.E. Officer in the world. Representatives attended and read a special resolution. And even Mary Jo Leads, a brilliant D.A.R.E. Educator, was in attendance.

Well done Robert! Well done INDEED!
