John Banuelos named Academy Sergeant

John Banuelos has been appointed to the position of Academy Sergeant, taking on one of the most important roles on the team. The annual academy classes are the first in-depth experience new team members have with CoCo SAR. Instilling a positive attitude in our new recruits, while training them in the skills necessary to find people and save lives, is critical to our long-term success, and sets the foundation for team culture. As more than half of us have experienced directly, John has been a key contributor to our academy classes for the last several years as Academy Corporal. As a team, we are privileged to have John take on such a critical role.
