“Thanks for another successful year in the Gordon County School system,” said Johnson. “The Sheriff’s School Resource officers did a great job. They are courteous, efficient, highly visible and create a safe environment in all our county schools. We look forward to continuing our great partnership with the Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Ralston and his staff always maintain open channels of communications with our superintendent, Dr. Susan Remillard, and her staff.”
