Overcash and Cato recognized for outstanding contributions

At its regular chapter meeting on Aug. 26, the Salisbury Chapter of NC Society Sons of the American Revolution (NCSSAR) recognized two public servants for outstanding contributions in their jobs.
Battalion Chief Reid Overcash of Rowan Emergency Medical Services was honored with the Emergency Medical Services Commendation Medal for accomplishments and/or outstanding contribution in an area of emergency medical services. It specifically recognizes those who have performed beyond that normally expected. Chief Overcash is a 32-year veteran of Emergency Services, beginning his career with the Salisbury Fire Department in 1986. He joined Rowan County EMS in 1988. He holds paramedic credentials with North and South Carolina, and the National Registry.
School Resource Officer Tommie Cato was presented the Law Enforcement Commendation Medal. The Law Enforcement Commendation Medal is presented to those who have served with distinction and devotion in the field of law enforcement. The medal is intended to recognize exceptional service or accomplishment in the field of law enforcement. Cato is the school resource officer at East Rowan High School. He is a retired NC State Trooper who subsequently joined the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office as a school resource officer. He was selected Rowan County’s Officer of the Year in both 1996 and 2016 and was awarded the NC Order of the Long Leaf Pine by Governor McCrory.
The chapter was also recognized by the National Society for its sponsorship of Wreaths Across America at the Salisbury National Cemetery. A Partner in Participation Certificate was presented by Foothills Region VP, Jack Bowman.
Certificates for the Patriotic Display of the American Flag were made to Rowan EMS and Mt. Hermon Lutheran Church in Statesville.
