Retired State Troopers Tour Shenandoah Valley

Two retired Pennsylvania State Police Troopers from the Nanticoke area who previously served as members of the Criminal Investigative Unit recently paid a visit to the Shenandoah Valley High School.

The Troopers were given a tour of the building by Superintendent Brian Waite & Public Relations Director Bob Yudinsky. 

Both troopers Sgt. Chester Zaremba and Stanley Jezewski were specifically interested in the commemorative plaque that is currently on display in the high school lobby that recognizes the 53 men and women from the Shenandoah area who served as members of Pennsylvania law enforcement. 

Their interest stemmed from an article that appeared in the official State police newsletter entitled “The Communicator” that acknowledged Shenandoah Valley as being the only school in Pa. to honor State Police officers from their community in such a manner. 

Knowing that Nanticoke area also had a large number of state troopers they began discussing plans to emulate the type of recognition initiated at Shenandoah Valley. 

According to Sgt Zaremba the Nanticoke group began the process of identifying troopers from their area and thus far they have identified 61 troopers with possibly 10 additional members. It is their hope that the plague will be completed by the end of the year.

Standing in front of the SV PSP Plaque are L-R: SV Public Relations Director Bob Yudinsky, Sgt Chester Zaremba, Trooper Stanley Jezewski, and SV Superintendent Brian Waite.
