2019 GWSAR Chapter Events
John Blair of the George Washington Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution presented Deputy Brian Wade, Deputy Gerald Wooden and Deputy Myrna Juarez with awards on Oct. 24 for their outstanding responses in two incidents last year. Then Blair presented an award to Sheriff Dana Lawhorne in recognition of his exceptional public service. Blair, who serves as the chapter’s Public Safety Awards chair, first awarded Wade and Wooden with law enforcement commendation medals for their quick thinking and rescue of an inmate who had attempted suicide. Then he presented Juarez with the chapter’s new life-saving award for her response, while off duty, to aid a man who had been critically injured in a crash on I-95. Blair stated that Juarez is the first person to receive this award. Members of the deputies’ families and many of their colleagues were present to see them receive their awards. Blair also announced that his chapter was presenting Lawhorne with the law enforcement commendation medal for his outstanding public service. Due to a prior commitment, Lawhorne was unable to be there so Undersheriff Tim Gleeson had the honor of accepting the award on the Sheriff’s behalf.
