Trooper Louis M. High, Jr. graduated Friday from the 137th Basic North Carolina Highway Patrol School. Trooper High is one of 19 State Highway Patrol cadets, who endured 15 weeks of what Colonel Bill Grey called the toughest law enforcement training in the country. They became state troopers during a graduation ceremony held in Cary.
Trooper High has been assigned to Troop B, District 2 in Sampson County.
Trooper High is the son of Louis and Emily High of Dunn, previously of Smithfield.
