Congratulations to Middleton High School Resource Officer Kenneth Chung for being awarded the Region 8 NASRO Regional Excellence Service Award.
This award is presented to individuals that provide continuous and sustained service to the school community above and beyond what is expected of a normal SRO or school staff member.
Associate Principal for MHS, Bobbie Reinhart nominated Chung and has this to say about him:
Officer Chung is masterful in using creative approaches to build relationships with students from all groups. He is able to work with students who had a very negative view of police officers in general. This doesn't push Officer Chung away, rather it causes him to lean into the tension and work even harder to reach the root cause of the issue and build rapport from the group up.
Officer Chung will be honored along with all of our other award recipients at this year's NASRO National School Safety Conference in Aurora, Colorado.
