The Catoosa County News - - FRONT PAGE - By Adam Cook

The Ca­toosa County Cham­ber of Com­merce took time last week to rec­og­nize the com­mu­nity’s finest as it held a spe­cial Net­work­ing at Lunch event to honor the top po­lice of­fi­cers and fire­men in the county.

The event, held Thurs­day, Sept. 14, in­cluded the pre­sen­ta­tion of awards for the of­fi­cers and fire­men of the year for their re­spec­tive agen­cies.

Deputy Marvin Clay Thomp­son took home the award for Of­fi­cer of the Year for the Ca­toosa County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment, As­sis­tant Chief Chad Cardin for the Ring­gold Po­lice Depart­ment, and Lt. John McGrath for the Fort Oglethorpe Po­lice Depart­ment. On the fire and res­cue front, Lt. Chris McCor­mack was named Fire­man of the Year for the Ca­toosa County Fire Depart­ment, while Terry W. Warnix was hon­ored with the same award for the Fort Oglethorpe Fire Depart­ment.

“It was a great event,” said Amy Jack­son, mem­ber­ship co­or­di­na­tor for the Ca­toosa County Cham­ber of Com­merce. “Con­grat­u­la­tions to the po­lice of­fi­cer and fire­fighter hon­orees who were rec­og­nized. Each was pre­sented with a plaque from the Cham­ber and a gift box, which in­cluded a $100 gift card from Bo­jan­gles of Fort Oglethorpe.” For more pho­tos, see pages A6-7 or visit our web­site at catoo­sawalk­ernews.com
