Lawmakers Honor Local Thomas County Officer

By  | 

Jones says he's never been more nervous in his life. The Thomas County DARE officer was honored by members of Georgia's General Assembly during a ceremony in Atlanta.

Steven Jones, 2005 DARE Officer of the Year, says, "I think it was a tremendous honor to be recognized before the House. DARE is such a wonderful program, and to be just a tool to deliver it is all I am. The program is what the kids get all excited about, but it was great."

Steven Jones and his wife were guests of Thomas County Rep. Mike Keown during their trip to the Capitol.
