Randolph Community College held its third annual Student Academic Honors Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, April 17, at Rushwood Park Wesleyan Church. Academic and Curriculum Awards were presented, along with several other special recognitions.
In his address, RCC President Robert S. Shackleford said it was “a happy occasion when we get together to celebrate the accomplishments of our students.” Shackleford addressed the honor students, saying there are three types of people in the world: people who wonder what happened, people who watch things happen, and “people who make things happen—people like you.”
In recognition of RCC’s 50th Anniversary in 2012, students from RCC’s first graduating class who would have qualified for Academic Awards were honored at the ceremony. Those awards were presented by Calvin Brower, an RCC drafting instructor in 1962. Recognized were Tommy L. Beane of Thomasville, an Auto Mechanics graduate; John S. Grose of Kernersville, a Drafting and Design Technology graduate; Jimmy J. Auman of Asheboro, a Machine Shop graduate; and Billy J. Cox of Asheboro, a Welding and Sheet Metal graduate. Beane, Grose, and Cox were present to accept their awards.
