Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools' Aspire staff recently honored Sergeant Casey Adams of the Groveport Police Department. Sgt. Adams has been coming to speak to adult immigrant students in the Aspire program for nearly six years. He helps facilitate open communication with the immigrant community and brings a better understanding of the interactions of police with community members.
"Sgt. Adams does an exceptional job of representing local law enforcement to our students," offered Angela Ward, director of adult workforce development. "He effectively communicates by directly interacting with them in a question-and-answer format. Furthermore, he lets them know that the department cares about them and always stands ready to help them."
On a basic level, it is important that the students are able to see a police officer as a friend to the community. The Aspire staff wanted a chance to show respect and appreciation for what Sgt. Adams does for these students and they recognized him during his most recent presentation to the adult immigrant students on October 22, 2019.
