Johnston Community College Foundation Announces Business and Industry Partner of the YearPublished: April 7, 2022
Johnston County Sheriff’s Office Recognized as 2021 Recipient
The Johnston County Sheriff's Office was named the 2021 Business and Industry Partner of the Year during the annual Breakfast Before Business event hosted by the JCC Foundation and local Johnston County Chambers last month.
“Johnston Community College Public Safety Department is very appreciative of the support that has been shown to us from Sheriff Steve Bizzell and the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office,” said Kim Robertson, assistant vice president of public safety programs. "He is very dedicated to ensuring the students in our schools see what great opportunities Johnston Community College has to offer."
The Sheriff's Office plays a key role in transporting the college’s Emergency Medical Simulations trailer to area schools. Sheriff Bizzell's team has moved the trailer across the county to give local high school students the opportunity to learn hands-on CPR training. JCC’s EMS students also use it to practice real-world clinical scenarios.
“We are grateful to the sheriff’s office for helping us with this,” says Director of EMS Programs Mick Stewart. “We could not do it without them.”
