Leonardtown, Maryland - On July 22, 2014, students attending the Middle School Leadership Academy Camp came to the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office for a tour. The students met with Captain Steve Hall, Commander of the Patrol Division and graduate of the FBI National Academy, for an impromptu question and answer session on what it means to be a leader.
During the tour, students were able to see the duty officer, Sergeant Stephen Myers, in action. They met the Sheriff's Office Crime Analyst, Jim O'Neil, and Crime Laboratory technician, Megan Roberts, who explained what they do to solve crime.
The visit culminated with and in depth discussion with Sheriff Tim Cameron about leadership. So many great questions were asked of the Sheriff. Sheriff Cameron explained how by simply attending the Leadership Academy Camp all of the students were already leaders. One of the students asked what is the best part of being Sheriff. Sheriff Cameron replied, "helping people, seeing the members of this agency do great things, and meeting young people like you."
This group of young men and women were so impressive. Sheriff Cameron and the men and women of the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office would like to thank Barbara Ives and her students for visiting and wish them continued success throughout their lives.
