ALFRED, Maine — A York County sheriff’s deputy has been recognized as the national school resource officer of the year.

Jason Solomon, a 12-year veteran of the force who has also been Massabesic High School’s school resource officer since 2010, has been chosen as the National Association of School Resource Officers’ School Resource Officer of the Year for 2013, according to Chief Deputy William King.

The award recognizes a school resource officer who has made a specific and significant contribution to their local community and school.

Solomon was nominated by King after the chief deputy received a number of reports praising his performance from students, faculty, administrators and parents.

Solomon will be recognized at a national conference in Orlando on July 14.
