YORK COUNTY, SC - Please join Sheriff Kevin Tolson, and members of the York County Sheriff's Office family in congratulating the August Awards and Commendations.
August Employee of the Month - Deputy Nathan Ferrara
- Deputy Ferrara was selected for Employee of the Month for August based upon the kindness and compassion that he showed to a York County citizen. Deputy Ferrara conducted a well-being check on an elderly female and learned that the female was upset because her family never comes to visit her and she also had not eaten a decent meal in a few days. Feeling a great deal of compassion for this individual, Deputy Ferrara took it upon himself to buy her lunch out of his own pocket and then spend time with her while she ate. Deputy Ferrara did not look for recognition for his actions and his kind deed was only discovered when his supervisor was conducting a routine review of Deputy Ferrara’s video footage.
Commendation - Donta McClure
- Deputy Donta McClure is to be commended for his hard work and quick thinking which resulted in a NARCAN save. Deputy McClure responded to a drug overdose and was able to maintain his composure, correctly assess the situation, and take the correct course of action which resulted in a successful NARCAN administration.
