Second Plaque:
Who was Randy Jennings?
Randy Jennings graduated Oroville High School, 1977, Butte College, AA, 1981, Simpson College, BA, 1984.

Joined Butte County Sheriff's Office, 1988. Randy was a gentleman in the finest sense of the word. A gentleman who happened to wear a badge.

He would ask, "How are you?" and you knew he meant it! He not only expected a response, he would listen to it!

Randy had a consuming passion for motorcycle racing. It was a beloved obsession. The competition, the element of danger, the thrill of the race - there was something there that had Randy enthralled.
