McLoughlin Middle SchoolDRO, safety, McLoughlin, Jonathan Lawrence

District resource officer

Years with VPS: 18

Most memorable career experience: When I was at Skyview High School, the staff had a giving tree and bought gifts for underprivileged children. It was rewarding to see the smiles of the kids.

One thing I’ve learned: Training is key. My training has prepared me for every situation that we DROs come across in schools.

A few words that describe me: Loves kids. Nice.

When I’m not working, I: Am a full-time dad and husband. I spend time with my family and attend church.
