COLUMBUS—State Senator Frank Hoagland (R-Mingo Junction) today presented a Senate Resolution to Chris Hammond for being named the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction's (ODRC) 2021 Correctional Officer of the Year and the Ronald C. Marshall Award recipient.

"Officer Hammond is someone who shows up to work every day on time, in the right uniform, and with the right attitude," said Senator Hoagland. "It is folks like Chris who make Ohio such a great state, and his leadership and hard-work should be a model for all."
