Knights of Columbus honors policeman for youth work


July 09, 1996|By Vicki Wellford | Vicki Wellford,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

PATROLMAN Kyle Stargill, of the Anne Arundel County police, has received the "Policeman of the Year" award from the Archbishop Keough Council of the Knights of Columbus for his work with West County youth.

He was cited particularly for his work with two boys from homes with severe domestic problems. His efforts not only reflected well on himself, but also had a positive impact on the county police department and the citizens of the county, organization officials said.

The award was presented during the June 30 meeting of the council, designated the "Grand Knight's Appreciation Night." It was the last meeting for the administration of Mark Conroy, whose term as Grand Knight expired.

In addition to Stargill, the "Knights of the Month," and "Families of the Month" for the last year were presented with certificates.

The plaque for "Knight of the Year" went to Mike Wingert for faithfully being chairman of the bingo operation, as well as being lector for the last year.

John Meinhardt's family was recognized as the "Family of the Year" for outstanding work on the monthly council organ ECHO.

In addition, the council set aside tomorrow's meeting for a prayer vigil, with Living Rosary and Litany for Life to honor the proclamation of the National Council of Catholic Bishops calling for July 11 as a day of prayer and fasting to override the Presidential veto of the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act.
