As the SRO assigned to Forrest Glen Middle School, Officer Kerner has consistently contributed beyond his normal duties to assist the school. A prime example of this is his creation of a weekly after-school guitar club. Officer Kerner contributed numerous volunteer hours obtaining all of the necessary permissions and orchestrating the guitar club agenda. Additionally, he sought out community partners to provide the 33 participants with guitar repairs, picks and strings. Officer Kerner even went as far to personally contribute funds in order to make the club a success. As a result of Officer Kerner’s efforts and the power of music the guitar club has brought together a cross-section of students and school administration that otherwise may not have formed a such a cohesive unit.
