CHERRY VALLEY TOWNSHIP – Cherry Valley Township supervisor and U.S. Army veteran, George Supernois was presented with a “retirement shadowbox” by Lake County Sheriff Rich Martin recently honoring his years of service to the community.

“When (he) mentioned to me that he never received a retirement shadowbox when he retired after 30 years as a deputy and sergeant for the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, I decided to make things right by making him his own shadowbox,” Sheriff Rich Martin told the Star. “This guy has been a mentor to me with his many years of service and tutelage.”

Supernois’ lengthy resume of service to the community and the country include: 30 years with the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office; 17 years in the U.S. Army Military Police Corps; 16 years as a firefighter for the Yates Township Fire Department; 14 years as Yates Township clerk; and is currently the Cherry Valley Township supervisor.

“Thank you, George, for your many years of service,” Martin said.
