Johnston Community College has received the Above and Beyond Award from the N.C. Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
David Oliver, a JCC networking instructor and recently retired member of the U.S. Army Reserves, served in Iraq in 2006 and Afghanistan in 2012 while employed at JCC. A native of Erwin, Oliver served a total of 24 years in the U.S. Army Reserve. He has taught at JCC for 17 years.
Oliver and JCC President David Johnson accepted the award during a recognition banquet March 25 at the Greensboro-High Point Marriott.
“I was humbled to accept the Above and Beyond Award on behalf of JCC,” Johnson said. “I told the attendees, we often describe ourselves at JCC as a family. This award represents how we take care of our family. What an honor to accept an award of appreciation from those who take care of us so well.”
