CHAPMANVILLE, W.Va. — Chapmanville Patrolman B.A. Mynes Jr. has been selected as The Logan Banner’s February Officer of the Month.
Mynes, a graduate of Scott High School and the West Virginia State Police Academy, has been with the Chapmanville Police Department for almost three years.
Mynes said he always wanted to be a police officer, although he did attend college in pursuit of another career.
“I was tired of doing things I really didn’t want to have a career in, so I decided to apply here,” Mynes said. “I have loved it ever since.”
Mynes is also an ordained minister and a member of the Ball Chapel at Jeffrey.
“I answered God’s call to preach about one and a half years ago,” Mynes said. “I’m not anybody special; spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ is my number one priority. I just want to be a servant for Christ.”
Mynes is the son of Barry and Angie Mynes of Lake, originally of Sharples. He and his wife Hannah are expecting their first child, with a due date of February 9.
