It was 10 years ago this month when a group of about 20 fresh-faced corrections officers, many of whom had just completed their college training, embarked on careers as the first employees of the newly established Logan County Juvenile Detention Center.

Now a decade later, seven members of this original group of officers still are employed at the Logan County Sheriff’s Office. They each received a second five-year service star during the past week, along with letters of commendation from Logan County Sheriff Andrew J. Smith.

Those who were honored include deputies Adam Fullerton and Ryan Brown, and corrections officers Tyrone Breaston, Chris Joseph, Tonia Rogan, Missy Davis and Jana Boysel, the last two of whom still work in the juvenile facility.
