Rep. McCravy and Sheriff Kelly thank the officers for coming.

Rep. John McCravy honored 19 officers of the Sheriff’s Department for over 2 decades of service last Thursday as part of his mission to thank Greenwood’s top-notch teams of first responders on behalf of the South Carolina House of Representatives.

Families, friends, and colleagues of the recognized officers gathered in the Greenwood County Library County Council Chambers. Rev. David Evans, Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Greenwood, opened the ceremony with prayer. Originally, 26 officers were to be honored, but 7 were out on calls, keeping Greenwood safe. A second presentation for them will be held at a later date.

“It’s amazing to see how many highly qualified officers we have here in Greenwood.” Rev. Evans remarked. They are undeniably a highly trained, experienced, and decorated team of men and women.

“Every day in the House of Representatives, the Chaplain starts with prayer, and part of that prayer is for the safety of our first responders.” Rep. McCravy says. “I want the first responders in my district to know they are prayed for.”

The officers honored were:

Capt. Brian Penn – 20 years of service

Sgt. Jeff Graham – 20 years of service

Sgt. Wayne Findley – 21 years of service

Lt. Derrick Smith – 22 years of service

Cynthia Owens, Records Dept. – 22 years of service

Capt. Marc Cromer – 22 years of service

Dep. Gary Moore – 23 years of service

Lt. Eddie Smith – 24 years of service

Dep. Kevin Reeder – 24 years of service

Capt. Wallace Enlow – 25 years of service

Sgt. Sharon Middleton – 25 years of service

Capt. Sam Watts – 26 years of service

Sgt. Bobby Grogan – 27 years of service

Sheriff Dennis Kelly – 30 years of service

Dep. Eric Inks – 31 years of service

Dep. Jimmy Boggs – 33 years of service

Major Lonnie Smith – 34 years of service

Donna Knight, Records Dept. – 36 years of service

Dep. Coke Brown – 45 years of service

Rep. McCravy presented each officer with a certificate of recognition from the SC House of Representatives. He also presented the Sheriff’s Department with a plum cake from his wife, Dana. “Maybe the cake was the most important presentation of the night.” McCravy said.

Special thanks to Major Lonnie Smith and Sheriff Dennis Kelley for coordinating this ceremony.
