A Sheriff's Salute is an award given to those individuals whose accomplishments deserve special recognition, traditionally given to a member of the agency. However, on Saturday, September 10, 2016, Zenobia Dyson, of St. Mary's County, was the recipient of one of these prestigious awards.
Mrs. Dyson was honored during a community worship event at the Holiday Inn and Suites. Capt. Steven Hall of the Sheriff's Office was proud to read aloud the words of the salute, “With appreciation and distinguished recognition of your exemplary community service. Your kind and selfless acts have helped countless people during their time of need. Your exemplary volunteerism and sustained dedication have been an invaluable asset to the citizens of St. Mary’s County and made a positive difference that will always be remembered."
Mrs. Dyson was recognized for her work in the community as a long-time advocate against sexual assault and domestic violence. Among other activities, she has launched a poetry reading night and spearheaded a career ministry to assist community members with job skills and preparation of resumes.
On behalf of Sheriff Cameron and the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office, thank you, Mrs. Dyson, for your work in the community.
