Having seen Jeff in action around the SRV campus over the years, and up close in our Dads on Campus meetings where he volunteered several evenings to meet with us and fill us in on the latest regarding the school goings-on in terms of teens, party drugs to be aware of, what to watch for, etc., and he'll really be missed. When I was in high school back in the 70's, some kids referred to our police presence on campus as "the NARC", and it wasn't meant to be complimentary. He treated his job like a mission to bust kids daily on every little thing. Conversely, Jeff has worked hard to earn the respect of students, faculty, and parents, and has been successful in doing that. Best of luck, Jeff, in the future!
