(KAIR)--Special recognition for an Atchison County Sheriff's Deputy, with Jesse Noll honored earlier this month by the "NextGen Under 30 KS" program.

A release from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie explains that the program is "renowned for its mission to recognize and celebrate exceptionally talented young adults under the age of 30 who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence in their careers, a strong dedication to community service, and a desire to build a promising future right here in Kansas." It recognizes and encourages young professionals who are pushing the boundaries of innovation, creativity, and community service. Award winners are selected based on their active participation and meaningful contributions to their respective communities, which Laurie says exemplifies Noll's commitment to the Atchison County community.

The 26-year-old Noll received the honor Friday, October 20 during an awards ceremony held in Wichita.

The release notes that noll began his career with the Atchison County Sheriff's Office in October, 2018 as a Jail Corrections Officer, becoming a certified Deputy after demonstrating "his dedication to ensuring the safety and security of inmates." The certification came in 2021, after Noll completed training at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center, and now serves as supervisor in the Atchison County Jail with additional responsibilities.

Laurie, in the release calls Noll "highly engaged and a contributor to the operational decisions of the" jail, with his work often transpiring "behind the scenes and his accomplishments often go unseen."

Another member of the Atchison County Sheriff's Office is also receiving accolades, with Sgt. David Worley last month marking his 15th work anniversary.

A release from the Sheriff's Office calls Worley's career "a true testament of commitment and dedication to serving the Atchison Community."

Worley began his career in law enforcement as a Corrections Officer in the Atchison County Jail, advancing, in 2013, to Patrol Deputy, a position the release says "he has excelled in ever since."

The past six years, Worley has served as K-9 handler with his partner, K-9 Ernie.
