Guerra selected officer of month

Officer Jason Guerra has been selected as Correctional Officer of the Month for the month of September at the Reeves County Detention Center I.

Officer Guerra is a 2001 graduate of Pecos High School and the proud father of two children, Jason Guerra, Jr., two-years-old and seven-month-old Faith BreAnn Guerra.

He began his employment with the Reeves County Detention Center on Dec. 7, 2001.

Officer Guerra is ranked as Correctional Officer I.

His hobbies include fishing, hunting, working on cars and just spending time with his children.

Officer Guerra maintains high standards in his work ethics. His dedication to the operation of the Reeves County Detention Center is outstanding, according to RCDC Warden Rudy Franco.

"Officer Guerra has little experience working at the institution, but already shows a great interest in learning and is willing to accept additional responsibilities," said Franco. "He accomplishes all assigned tasks in minimal time and with exceptional results," he said.

Officer Guerra intends to continue working at the institution and making corrections a career.

As a Correctional Officer, Guerra's primary responsibility is to maintain security and control of the institution. "He has continuously executed this responsibility in the highest respect, and has always taken pride in his position with the Reeves County Detention Center," said Franco.

The Reeves County Detention Center is proud to recognize Officer Guerra as Correctional Officer of the Month.

"His high standards, quality of work performance, and self-motivation have earned him this honor," said Franco. "It is a pleasure to be associated with an individual such as Officer Guerra, who exhibits such professionalism. We wish him continued success in his career with the Reeves County Detention Center," he said.

WTCRC sponsors third annual `watermelon day'

Students, staff and volunteers at WTSS got a break from the heat on Aug. 27, with the help of more than 100 ice-cold watermelons from Coyanosa, courtesy of the West Texas Community Resource Council.

WTCRC council members Julia Smith, Marissa Layton, Bill and Dottie Slattery and volunteer Dennis Bowers were on hand to share in the festivities. The cold melons provided some very welcome relief from the 109-degree temperatures of the day. This is the third year the WTCRC has hosted the "Watermelon Day" and it becomes more successful each year.

The mission of the Texas Youth Commission volunteer services department is to maximize community resources and utilize volunteers to provide opportunities that enable youth to become responsible and productive citizens.

West Texas State School is always in need of volunteers for membership on the West Texas Community Resource Council, to provide one-on-one tutoring, enhance religious activities, to serve as mentors and to sponsor special events such as dorm Christmas parties.

Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer at WTSS, can contact Donna Garcia, Coordinator for Volunteer Services at 915-389-5555, ext. 221 or at .
