Brian Fether of Fayette is a member of the class of 12 students from Northwest Ohio who completed the state certification exam and the physical fitness requirements of the program.

 “The Law Enforcement Academy at Northwest State is a physically and mentally demanding program,” said Lori Robison, dean of Allied Health and Public Service. “By completing this intensive program, these graduates have shown the dedication and effort necessary for a successful career in law enforcement.”

 In addition to Fether, the 2011 graduating class includes Rashuan Amey (Archbold), Benjamin Baldwin (Pioneer), Steven Brown (Defiance), Tyler Jones (Neapolis), Matthew Kryder (McClure), Jason McQuillin (McClure), Lance Naves (Wauseon), Jessica Piña (Defiance), Rogelio Rubio (Defiance), Justin Ruffer (West Unity) and Ernest Simpson (Pioneer).

 At the graduation ceremony, special recognition was given to Brown who was presented with the Top Gun Award for earning the highest score on the firing range. Ruffer was recognized for earning the top test score in the class.

The Northwest State Community College Henry County Law Enforcement Academy is an eight-month program, with a new class scheduled to begin in August.

According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
