On March 27, 2019 a State Police helicopter visited Blue Ridge’s law enforcement career advisement period (CAP). Students were able to meet with the pilot and learn the ins and outs of the job as well as see and learn about the helicopter.
The law enforcement CAP class is instructed by Mr. Greg Deck and Ms. Katie Brown. Students learn about careers and important aspects of having a job in the law enforcement department. Deck, the school’s student resource officer, is a retired State Police officer and gives students a look into his former job, as well as having former colleagues visit to give students insight into their profession.
Dylan Dorunda, a Sophomore member of the CAP class, voiced his appreciation for the visit. “It was pretty freaking cool. He explained a lot about his job and the helicopter. Not every class gets to have a helicopter visit, and the kids not in that class are missing out.”
Students can’t wait to see what else Deck and Brown have up their sleeves.
