JACKSON - Master Sergeant John Collum, of Fulton, MS, a
thirteen-year veteran of the Mississippi Department of Wildlife,
Fisheries, and Parks, was recently awarded the 2012 SEAFWA Officer
of the Year by the Southeast Association of Fish and Wildlife
Agencies. Seventeen other top officers from across the southeast
region of the United States were nominated for the prestigious
award, bestowed annually since 1986.
"Officer Collum's exceptional dedication to protecting the
natural resources and people of Mississippi, as evidenced by his
community outreach, leadership skills, and innovation, are typical
of his service, and are the reason he was awarded this honor,"
stated Dr. Sam Polles, Executive Director of MDWFP.
Officer Collum began working as a volunteer hunter and boating
safety instructor for Itawamba County before becoming a
conservation officer and has since distinguished himself as one of
the state's most respected law enforcement professionals.
