Watauga Elementary School | Officer Gemmell Speaks to 2nd Graders

Police Officer standing with students.Officer Scott Gemmell with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office spoke to Watauga Elementary 2nd graders about his position as the School Resource Officer.

Students enjoyed hearing Officer Gemmell describe his job, and how he enjoys providing security for Watauga Elementary. Students had the chance to ask questions and make comments. They also noted that Officer Gemmell doesn’t have a police dog at school. Students indicated that they would love to have a police dog walk the halls of Watauga Elementary School! Many 2nd graders associated Officer Gemmell with Officer Buckle in the familiar story, "Officer Buckle and Gloria". Watauga Elementary School is proud of our Officer Gemmell!
