SCC Receives the Duke Energy Citizenship and Service Award
Dobson, NC - March 22, 2012 The 2012 awards luncheon for the Greater Mount Airy Chamber of Commerce was held at Cross Creek Country Club on Thursday, March 22. Jimmy Flythe, chamber board member, gave out the Duke Energy Citizenship & Service award to Surry Community College.
“Surry Community College has been an agent for positive change in Surry and surrounding counties for well over 40 years. During that time, thousands of individuals in our community have, with college assistance, reached personal goals and attained improved standards of living through meaningful employment and entrepreneurial efforts”, said Flythe.
SCC President Dr. David Shockley accepted the award.
“I’m the luckiest president in the United States. I accept this award first and foremost for the students because that’s what we are about, without them, we are nothing. But then, I want to thank the faculty and staff for all the hard work they put in day in and day out. This award would not be possible without the support of the community. The heart of a community college is the community. We are here to serve you and we are here to make our community better,” said Shockley.
