Contact: Katie Lawhon, 717-338-4402The National Park Service has announced that John Sherman, a law enforcement ranger at Gettysburg National Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site, has been recognized for his efforts to save lives on our roadways through enforcement, education, engineering, and EMS Response.
Each year, the National Park Service’s Law Enforcement, Security and Emergency Services, Traffic Safety Coalition seeks out those Rangers, Parks, Superintendents, and others that have gone the extra mile to ensure the safety of our visitors, co-workers and our park's natural and cultural resources by removing Drunk, Drugged, Drowsy, and Distracted drivers from our roadways. Each of them has worked hard to help reach the targeted goal of "zero deaths" in our National Parks!
Ranger Sherman, of Fairfield, Pa., was recognized for his leadership and personal efforts to address safety concerns at Gettysburg in problem areas such as crosswalks, speed zones, accident scenes, and bicycle safety.
“We are extremely happy to recognize John Sherman for his efforts here at Gettysburg and Eisenhower parks to save lives,” said Ed W. Clark, Gettysburg Superintendent. “Ranger Sherman has been honored throughout the National Park system and more than 400 parks as a traffic safety champion!”
Gettysburg National Military Park preserves, protects and interprets for this and future generations the resources associated with the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, during the American Civil War, the Soldiers' National Cemetery, and their commemorations.
