Calvert Sheriff Salutes CSM, Gladys Jones

College Provides Classroom for Two-Week Crash Reconstruction School

            “You guys are so special—there’s not enough one can say about how you have responded when we needed you,” Calvert County Sheriff Mike Evans told College of Southern Maryland Director of Administrative Services Gladys Jones as he presented the Sheriff’s Salute to Jones and the college Nov. 23. The feeling was mutual as Jones responded, “You are here for us, too. This partnership means so much to the college.”

Evans presented the award for Jones’ support of the Sheriff’s Department in coordinating numerous training exercises and drills, and for securing classroom space for a two-week Crash Reconstruction School last April that was attended by law enforcement personnel from around the state.
