Mabry Minute for Week of 11/25/18
Meet Officer Mike Claypool
We'd like to introduce you to the new Community School Officer who has been assigned to Mabry and we are thrilled to have. In his own words, please meet Officer Mike Claypool:

I am a proud father of six children with ten years experience in sworn law enforcement. Two of my step children attended Mabry years ago one of which (Jaelen Knight) was appointed to the United States Air Force Academy. I took an early retirement from law enforcement to pursue a career in Emergency Medical Services as a medic as I have a strong passion for emergency medicine and helping people. I worked several roles in EMS, working in an ambulance, and adult and pediatric emergency departments (Bayfront Medical Center Level II trauma Room & All Children's Hospital ER). I have worked as a medical crew member for an air ambulance company caring for patients being flown globally. I have a strong passion for the protection of our children and knew it would be a good fit with my experience to work as a Community School Officer aka "Guardian".  When I am not working I love to fish and being on my boat.
