COSHOCTON – Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Scott Mast was once again recognized, but this time it was by Secretary of State Jon Husted.

Bob Kalish, Husted’s regional liaison, came to Coshocton March 24 to present Mast with a certificate of commendation for being named officer of the year by the department. Mast has been with the sheriff’s department for 23 years.

“I truly love my job,” he said.

Mast’s current duties are to transport prisoners.

“The drug problem in our community is overwhelming, but I deal with people when they are sober and most of them are really decent people,” Mast said. “Their life is just a train wreck because of their drug problem. It’s rare that someone lets you know you helped them, but when it happens it makes you feel good. You hope you can get through to somebody.”

He also has done a number of other jobs in the sheriff’s office such as working in the jail, being in dispatch and served as a road officer and a shift supervisor.

Kalish said someone from the community informed Husted of Mast’s award and they presented him with the commendation to show their gratitude for his work and devotion to the residents and visitors of Coshocton County.
