Friday, August 9, 2013

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts on Thursday, August 8 presented the Sheriff’s Award, which is the highest honor that the sheriff can bestow, to Lexington Technology Center Director, Mr. Ken Lake.

Metts presented Lake with the Sheriff’s Award in recognition of his commitment to education and improving the quality of life for young people as director of the Lexington Technology Center for many years.

“Ken is highly committed to students, faculty and staff at the Lexington Technology Center,” Metts said. “His strong leadership, and friendship, to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department is a tremendous asset to the citizens of Lexington County.”

Lake has worked as an educator for more than 43 years, Metts said. He has served in many capacities including a high school teacher, an Assistant Professor of Vocational Education at Clemson University, State Supervisor of Trade and Industrial Education of the S.C. Department of Education, and as Assistant Director and Director of the Lexington Technology Center.

Lake led efforts for students of the Lexington Technology Center to assist in construction of the beds utilized by inmates in the Lexington County Detention Center when it was constructed throughout the 1990’s, Metts said.
