SOUTH AKRON — Summit County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Mike Walsh has been recognized by the Akron Optimist Club for his service to the community.

Club members conduct positive service projects for children in their local communities, according to the club’s website. The club recognizes police and fire medics annually.

Walsh is a supervisor in the Community Policing Division and has been with the office for more about 20 years, according to Sheriff Steve Barry.

Walsh oversees the D.A.R.E. program and senior programs, he added.

“He has a lot of community involvement with various organizations,” said Barry.

Walsh will be honored Sept. 17 at 11:30 a.m. at the New Era Restaurant, 10 Massillon Road.

The Optimist Club of Akron meets at the restaurant on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 11:45 a.m.
