PARROTTSVILLE-The Parrottsville Ruritan Club selected Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes as its 2013 Law Enforcement Officer of the Year, and awarded three $1,000 scholarships, on Monday, July 8.

The awards were made at the Ruritan Club's annual family picnic held in the Parrottsville town park, according to club secretary Don Erts.

Fred Lee, chairman of the citizenship and patriotism committee of the Parrottsville Ruritan Club, said "as far as I know" Fontes is the first sheriff ever awarded the recognition of officer of the year by the club, at least for the past 18 years.
