Students in Julie Shepherd’s 2nd grade class at Lynn Camp Elementary are learning about the people that serve their community.  To add to their Social Studies unit over community helpers, the students in Shepherd’s class invited Sgt. Kenny Jones with the London Police Department to be a guest speaker on March 3.

Jones told the 2nd grade students how police officers help the community.  He offered the students tips on being drug free and not talking to strangers.  

At the end of the visit, the students explained how they were going to help contribute to the community – both now and when they grow up.   Jones presented each student with an honorary police badge.
