School resource officer receives state award | Schools
School resource officer Lewis M. Scott received the Tennessee PTA Life Achievement Award for faithful and unselfish service rendered on behalf of the students at Germantown Middle School.
The award was presented last week by PTA representative Ms. Ildiko Sloan, Shelby County Schools Superintendent John Aitken, PTA member Pamela Johnson and Germantown Middle School Principal Russell Joy.
Scott, a 30-year veteran of the Germantown Police Department, has enthusiastically embraced his role as a school resource officer for the past ten years.
He will end his career at GMS in May and is scheduled to retire from the Germantown Police Department in June.
School officials comment that Scott is always willing to go the extra mile to protect the children and keep families informed.
"SRO Scott is an asset to the Germantown Police Department, Shelby County Schools and especially GMS," said police chief Richard Hall.
