Three employees at the correction centers in Cameron were honored with the 2019 Director’s Award of Valor. Director Anne Precythe says the awards are for their actions at Crossroads Correctional Center last year. In the early moments of the uprising in May of last year, Cade Thompson, Jason Huff and David Baker took a leadership role and ensured the safety of staff and offenders in harm’s way. The three swiftly and safely evacuated staff and offenders from the building, containing the rioters inside. Their foresight prevented serious injury.
Cade Thompson is a Corrections Supervisor II, Jason Huff is a Corrections Officer III and David Baker is a Corrections Officer I
