Chuck R. Dalton, 17, of Berrett, an Explorer Scout since the group began two years ago, received a Good Citizenship Award from the state police for volunteer work at the Westminster barracks. As president of the 13-member group, he has worked on traffic and crowd control at county events and carnivals. He helped with paper work and in the radio room at the barracks. The group has also organized displays at area malls.

Organization's comments: "Chuck is a positive role model and influence for the other members of the troop," said Tfc. Matt Breeding, who has worked with the Explorers for two years. "As president of the group, he has been energetic and enthusiastic. He always is willing to do more and never says no to a task."

Volunteer's comments: "I have gotten to help a lot and have enjoyed the experience. On several ride alongs, I have seen first-hand what law enforcement involves. It can be a dangerous and stressful job."

Chuck plans to study criminal justice at Carroll Community College and continue at Villa Julie College in Baltimore County. He hopes to become a state police officer or work for the Drug Enforcement Agency. He plans to keep active in the Explorers until he is 21 and would like to become an adult adviser.

Background: Chuck, a senior at South Carroll High School, plays trombone in all the school bands and recently started playing with Western Maryland College's Jazz Band. He is the son of Charles and Sandy Dalton and the brother of Karen Dalton, 14, and Trisha Metcalf, 25.
