Paul Damico, executive director of security and emergency management, received the Lifesaver Award for his work on the New Bern campus during Hurricane Florence. Throughout the storm and in the days that followed, Paul maintained a presence on campus that kept the Executive Leadership Team informed about damage to the campus. Paul also helped coordinate community recovery efforts on the campus that included the New Bern Police Department and the Red Cross.
The Lifesaver Award is given to Craven CC staff and faculty in recognition of a deed above and beyond the normal duties of a job. The Executive Leadership Team (ELT) makes recommendations to the president and then presents each recipient with a jar of lifesavers and a balloon.
