Why are you willing to serve at Heritage in this capacity?
From my hire date, Heritage was a calling and not a destination. I feel a deep commitment to what we have established here in Security for our community. I could not imagine a day where someone who meant harm to Heritage was able to do that harm without being confronted with equal force. I am a proud parent of two HCS students and feel strongly that part of being a top educational facility in our current culture is having a professionally trained security department with the ability to respond in a variety of capacities to any threat the school may encounter.
