The SROs in Warren County are deputies under the Sheriff’s Department and are sworn to uphold the law.SROs in Warren County are Pennington, who works systemwide, Jarvis Johnson, Brandon Vann and Kevin York at WCHS, and Brad Hennessee at WCMS.The patch is green outlined in yellow and has a old-fashion school building with a flag, two magnolia trees and a magnolia blossom representing Warren County being the Nursery Capital of the World. Reid said he used the magnolia tree because it is a good representation of the South.He said he had a friend help with the final artwork.
