Some young teachers in Pender County are trying to break the language barriers law enforcement officers sometimes face.

16-year-old Diego Camposeco and 17-year-old Bryan Rojas are helping teach a Spanish class at the Pender County branch of Cape Fear Community College. The pupils are members of the Burgaw Police Department and Pender County Sheriff’s Office.

Camposeco and Rojas are students at Pender Early College. They are getting community service hours for their work, and said they are happy to help out.

“They’re moving very fast. I was surprised, and they did a great job. I’m impressed,” Rojas said.

Camposeco said, “I feel good that I’m helping the community at such a young age and in such a unique manner.”

The law enforcement officers hope to learn Spanish basics to better communicate with the Hispanic community.
