Grayson Lawlor poses with correctional officers.

Grayson Lawlor, 9, of Keene, was recently named an honorary certified county correctional officer with the Cheshire County Department of Corrections. He participated in the graduation ceremony at the Merrimack County Department of Corrections with the other officers in the graduating class on Oct. 15.

Grayson has wanted to be a correctional officer since he saw a booth at the Hopkinton Fair recently, where the Merrimack County Corrections Department was seeking applicants. Grayson ran over and said he wanted to apply for a job, according to his mother Stephanie Lawlor of Keene. The corrections officers were impressed with his enthusiasm and later invited him to be part of their ceremony for graduating officers.
