Biographical information

I was Born in Bristol, TN on November 22, 1980 to Roy Glenn Light, and El Freda Von Light. By 1987 we had moved to Conover, NC. By 1995 we had moved to Newton, NC. I attended Newton-Conover High School, lettered in JROTC Drill and Track, and Graduated in 1999. From there I trained in Shotokan Karate, and held several Jobs. On October 3, 2005 I became a correctional officer for the state of NC.

Design rationale

The azure in the upper part of the shield represents truth, and loyalty to ones friends. The two tygers are representation to the Martial arts style that I trained in which the symbol of the art is the tiger. The symbolism of fierceness and valor goes along with the teachings of that art. This is also why the tygers are combatant. They are reguardant to symbolize that violence is a last resort. The Black in the lower field is a symbol of grieve as I am constantly reminded of the bad people are capable of at my job, which is why it appears under the chevron . The chevron and the eagle are both symbols of my job, the chevron my job to protect the inmates, and the eagle my job to protect the public. The wolf crest is for everyday I walk out of work unharmed.
