WINNSBORO — Fairfield Career and Technology Center teacher Marvin Miller was recently recognized for his assistance in designing a crisis response plan alongside the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office.
Capt. Brad Douglas noted that Miller has been an integral in the process and presented him with a plague recognizing his dedication.
The response plans are inclusive of every school building in the county.
“It is very detailed oriented and Marvin (Miller) has been working with us non-stop,” Douglas recognized. “In recognition of your outstanding service and dedication to the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office to ensure the safety of the students and staff.”
Douglas stated that the two parties have been working diligently throughout the past year to update the crisis response plans for the school district.
“It’s unfortunate that tragic events happen in our schools but we have to be prepared for it,” he emphasized.
Douglas thanked the school district for allowing them to collaborate on the effort of updating the crisis response plans.
Miller is a graduate of Spring Valley High School Class in 1977. He worked 10 years in the printing industry before becoming a teacher and has been teaching Graphic Communications at Fairfield Career & Technology Center for 23 years.
Superintendent of Fairfield County Schools J.R. Green knows the importance of safety inside schools.
“On behalf of the school district I just want to say thank you for your dedication to ensure that we maintain a safe environment for all the students of Fairfield County,” he said. “I tell people all the time that parents are more concerned with safety than they are with anything else. They are more concerned with safety than curriculum, instruction, facilities or anything. And we could not accomplish that safety without the assistance of the sheriff’s office.”
