Seven Lakes Kiwanis
The Seven Lakes Kiwanis welcomed the son of one of its own members at its July 29 meeting. Casey Everett, son of Lloyd Everett, holds a doctorate in clinical psychology, and is employed by Law Enforcement Psychological Services.
He works with several states, screening applicants for the various state police forces.
The psychological and emotional screening is one of the most important facets of a potential trooper's qualifica-tions during the evaluation process. Basic criteria for the job, such as the age requirement and physical size and fitness are straightforward. However, evaluating the emotional stability -- the ability to act properly under stress, and handle the day-to-day stress on an ongoing basis -- is most important, and requires the skills of a trained psychologist.
Everett's comments were interesting and eye-opening as to the high standards to which the state police troopers are held, said a spokesman.
The Seven Lakes Kiwanis meets every Tuesday at noon at the Seven Lakes Country Club.
