The sheriff's office will begin interviewing prospective chap- lains next month and the new volunteers will start training ear- ly next year. When law enforcement of_ ricers deal with tragedies, they could benefit from talking about the experience, Dougherty said. The program also will be available to community mem- bers who have come into con- tact with law enforcement in some way, he said, perhaps as victims of a robbery or break- in or those dealing with a fam- ily member who's become in- volved in a crime. Dougherty said that the coun- seling will be "somewhat spiri- tual, but also just someone you can talk to to process out what 'sB By BILL ARNICAR Special to the Spirit CHARLES TOWN - James K. Park, a senior at Jefferson High school, was last month award- ed West Virginia's place at The American Legion's national pro- gram, called Boy's Nation. Park was selected after attending The American Legion Mountaineer's Boy State program held recently at Jackson's Mill, West Vn-ginia Uni- versity's extension campus. He was chosen from the 400 high school juniors that attended the program this year. "The young men that attend this program are the future leaders of America," said Ralph Fox, com- mander of Jackson-Perks Post 71. "Jefferson County was selected, for lack of a better term, as the overall has happened, help get the words out of your mouth, get stuff off your chest." Dougherty believes it's es- sential for the chaplains to un- derstand what happens at crime scenes and to know how the po- lice work so he'll have the chap- lain volunteers complete the same rigorous training as other members of the Jefferson Coun- ty Sheriff's Reserve. "They know what the work involves from the law enforce- ment side, so when they're counseling they have knowl- edge of what has happened and what is going to be happening," he said. Lt. Ken Andrews said vol- unteers in the reserve assist the sheriff's department in respond- ing to calls throughout the coun- ty and helping with traffic con- trol at accidents and in vehicle and home searches. Other tasks include serving court papers, processing arrests, finger printing suspects and pro- viding transportation to the East- em Regional Jail,Andrews said. Starting in February, the Dep- uty Sheriff Reserve Academy will include the chaplain train- ing program. When the pro- gram is up and nmning, as many as five chaplains will work on an on-call schedule, Dougherty said. Want to volunteer? To be considered for the new Jefferson. County Reserve Chaplain Program, citizens must be an ordained clergy per- son of a recognized religious body; provide a letter of refer- ence outlining their qualifica- tions; hold a degree in religion, counseling, education or relat- ed area; be at least 21; and be a legal resident of West Virginia. Those interested may apply online at or in per- son at the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office at 102 Indus- trial Blvd., Suite 100, Kear- neysville. Interviews will begin in Au- gust. S winner for West Vtrginia. Mr. Park was selected based on his outstand- ing qualifications in character and leadership to attend one of the most respected and selective education- al programs of government instruc- tion ever designed for high school students ." High school juniors are screened in early spring by local American Legion posts to attend the Boys State program. "It is a participatory program where each young man becomes a part of the operation of his local, county, and state government," Fox said. "In most cases, a sponsoring American Legion post, a local busi- ness, or another community-based organization pays expenses associ- ated with attending this program." The program's activities include legislative sessions, court proceed- ings, law enforcement presenta- dons, assemblies, bands, chorus, and recreational programs. The American Legion's Boys State pro- gram is a unique way for young men to learn about the American system of government by taking part in a mock governmental sys- tem. This year also had the young men attending this program were given lectures by an assortment of West Vh'ginia attorneys, the FBI, State Police, Department of Natu- ral Resources officers and Nation- al Guard members. Additionally they attended speeches by the Sec- retary of State, Attorney General, Commissioner of Agriculture, and WVU's Director of Athletics. West Virginia has the second old- est Boys State program in the na- tion. The program has been held in this state without intermpdon since 1936.
