Lynn Campbell suprised Beverly Coates with the honor of a Paul Harris Fellow at the weekly meeting of The Rotary Club of Lake Murray-Irmo on  February 11, 2105.  Lynn recognized Beverly’s long time work in the community particularly for her work with Carolina Concerns of Police Survivors. 

Carolina C.O.P.S. works hard to help rebuild the shattered lives of law enforcement families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty.   They provide support and information to police survivors and their agencies. Survivors never “get over” their loved one’s death, but in time learn to put the love in a special place and move forward.

The road of grief can be very difficult and lonely. Carolina C.O.P.S. seeks to lessen the confusion and pain that a survivor will encounter, and its officers are available 24/7 to provide whatever support they can to South Carolina Surviving families.  Ms Beverly is a Surviving Mother of South Carolina Highway Patrol-ACE Team Trooper Mark Coates.  We thank her for her service and dedication to this worthy cause.  If you would like to learn more about C.O.P.S or to make a donation to help aid their hard work please visit
