Law Enforcement Officer of the Year

T

hrough 28 years in law enforcement, Tarleton State University Police Department Sgt. Jeffery “Chili” Alexander’s philosophy has served him well. “I treat people the way I want to be treated,” said Alexander, a 55-year-old native of Brady who was voted as the Law Enforcement Officer of the Year in the Best of Erath County awards. “When you do have to arrest somebody, you do it in a professional manner.” Alexander added, “It’s all about how you do your job. I’ve taken people to jail and they thanked me. I’m more of a fatherly figure to the kids.” He said he tries to treat them the same way he treats his own children. Alexander earned an associate degree from Cisco College before attending Southwest Texas State, where he majored in sports medicine. “I wanted to get into law enforcement out of high school,” Alexander said, noting that his mother discouraged it at first because of the potential dangers. “I told her this was my longterm dream.” He moved to Stephenville in 1991 and attended TSU’s police academy, which no longer exists. After graduation from the academy, former TSU Police Chief Robert Hooper asked Alexander if he would be interested in a job on the campus force. After all these years, he’s still enjoying his work. “It’s been a public service. I like dealing with people,” said Alexander, who has one cousin who served as a chief of police in the Metroplex. “I still love what I do. When it’s no fun anymore, I’m going to step aside.” Alexander and his wife, Shelley, have two sons — Creed, who is an account manager in Comanche, and Noble, who is a registered nurse living in Austin.

Coates named Person of the Year

E

rath County Sheriff Matt Coates was named Person of the Year during the Empire-Tribune’s Best of Erath awards gala Saturday night at Twisted J. Coates was appointed sheriff in 2016 and is now serving his first elected term. “It’s an extreme honor to have won,” Coates said. “The other nominees (Lonn Reisman and Clayton Iley) are great guys and I was honored to be nominated along with them.” Coates, 45, moved to Stephenville in 2013 and said “community involvement” is what makes the city unique. “Everybody works together for the greater good, and that’s not something you always see in other places,” Coates said. Coates was also nominated as Person of the Year in 2018.

Wells voted Firefighter of the Year

C

ody Wells, a captain and longtime member of the Stephenville Fire Department, was the voters’ choice for Firefighter of the Year in the 2019 Best of Erath Awards. “There are lots of other people who would have been just as deserving as me,” said Wells, a Tarleton State University graduate who has been an SFD firefighter and paramedic since 2000. “I was humbled to say the least.” Dec. 12 will mark his 19th anniversary with the department. “He’s a good firefighter and a good paramedic,” Chief Jimmy Chew said. “He’s a real analytical type person, and he looks at things real business-like. “He gets along with people, and he cares about what he’s doing,” Chew said. “He’s what you’d want in a neighbor.” Before he came to work for the SFD, Wells had been a school athletic trainer. He majored in sports medicine at TSU, and worked as an athletic trainer at Canyon Randall and Andrews before a three-year stint at Cleburne High School. Wells is one of three captains with the SFD. He was promoted to captain on Feb. 1, 2017. The process of becoming a captain includes satisfying specific criteria and becoming certified, before also being required to pass board exams. “Overall, just to help people is the point,” said Wells, who was born in Goldthwaite and graduated from Axtell High School in 1987. “That’s what we’re here to do.” Wells said he loves the camaraderie among the firefighters. He misses being an athletic trainer at times, but said, “I made the right move. This career has afforded me to do a lot of things that I wouldn’t have been able to do. It’s been a more dynamic environment. I like the spontaneity. I have enjoyed this.” Wells and his wife, Ellen, have three children — Hunter, a 21-year-old son attending Texas A&M; Gage, an 18-year old son who just graduated from Stephenville High School; and Callie, a 16-year-old who will be a junior at SHS this fall.

Jody Fain named Best Nurse

C

entral Elementary school nurse Jody Fain was named Best Nurse during the Empire-Tribune’s Best of Erath awards gala. Fain graduated from Tarleton State University in 2007 with her bachelor’s degree in exercise and sports studies with a minor in business administration. She also received her LVN license at Weatherford College in 2009. She has been a nurse at Central since 2014. “I try to be the best at what I do, but I really feel like we have such a good group. I have such a good group of coworkers, so actually it’s not just me; it’s everybody, everybody helping out, like yes, I might be labeled ‘Best Nurse’ but there’s a system there. There’s teamwork with all of us,” she said. “I want to be the best at what I do, especially dealing with kiddos that are at school all day.” She said she loves Stephenville because of the community involvement and the compassion that the residents have for one another. “I went in to nursing because I wanted to help people,” Fain said. “Now I get to help over 400 four to six-year-olds every day. School nursing can be just as difficult and stressful as any other nursing job, but the smile on the kids’ faces after you have helped them and later on when you see them, it is so rewarding. You are a super hero to them. It’s the best feeling. When a pediatrician in town calls you and tells you their daughter wants ‘Nurse Jody’ to put on their Band-Aid, you know you have to be doing something right.” Fain has been married to her high school sweetheart Jacob for 13 years. They have four children.
