It’s all in the cards for the Hanover School Resource Officers

It’s all in the cards for the Hanover School Resource Officers

Forget Pokemon or baseball trading cards. The Hanover School Resource Officers are now depicted on their own trading cards. The officers are handing them out to students who go above and beyond in helping or assisting with everyday tasks at the two elementary schools and the middle school. The printing costs were paid with the help of funds from the PTO's from the three schools. 

The idea for these cards came from Director of School Safety and Security Michael O’Donnell.  He designed the cards and his wife, Traci, took the photographs of the officers. On the back of each card is information about each resource officer, including hobbies, education and a favorite quote.

The kids are very excited to get the cards.  Each officer was given 100 cards to share, and they are going fast.

The eight officers depicted on the cards are Ofc. Jarrett Stickle, Ofc. Richard Pennington, Ofc. Ryan Miller, Sgt. David Moake, Cpl. Jason Allande, Officer Marcus McDowell, Commander Tim Kilgore, and Officer Dustin Corbin.
