Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly are pleased to recognize Sergeant Corey Cook for receiving the South Carolina Sheriff's Association Medal of Valor; and
Whereas, the South Carolina Sheriff's Association Medal of Valor is given to any deputy sheriff who performs actions above and beyond the call of duty and who exhibits exceptional courage, extraordinary decisiveness, and presence of mind, or an unusual swiftness of action, regardless of his or her personal safety, in an attempt to save or protect human life; and
Whereas, on October 25, 2020, Sergeant Corey Cook was dispatched in the early hours of the morning to locate a possible victim who had been stabbed and left the scene.
