Fort Wayne, Ind. (WANE) - Trine campus safety is known for their daily involvement with students. The director of campus safety, Keith Hefner says Doug Stone is the epitome of the program.
Doug Stone transports students and visitors to and from the airport, on top of being a campus safety officer.
He moved to Indiana from Alaska to be closer to family, but knew he needed to find a pastime during retirement. That's when he joined the campus safety team at Trine University.
Now 5 years later he is being awarded with the Officer of the Year award for the non-sworn division.
Stone says he did not expect it at all, and was very honored to be nominated by one of his bosses.
After spending just a short time on campus, you're bound to find at least one person who knows Officer Stone, and that's what he loves about his job.
