The North Carolina Association of Fire Chiefs is the prestigious organization that granted McDaniel and his team the recognition at a board meeting, presenting them with a "thank you plaque of appreciation."
“We are very proud of Roger. He is an asset to Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. His dedication to the training of our public safety professionals is unparalleled,” said in the release Dr. Carol S. Spalding, president of Rowan-Cabarrus.
The partnership between the North Carolina Association of Fire Chiefs and Rowan-Cabarrus as been cultivated for many years at the Mid-Winter Annual Conference.
The recognition is largely due to the increasing success and number of courses offered at Rowan-Cabarrus for Fire & Emergency Services training. Last year there were over 1,100 fire and emergency services courses taught.
Jake Whisnant, executive director of North Carolina Association of Fire Chiefs, stated in the release that the "support from our community colleges is vital to our conference initiatives, and we know we can always count on the support of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.”
He continued to note the importance of quality instructors, something that the College is becoming increasing known for, especially when it comes to their popular public safety programs. Because of some recent investments that have been made into the programs, there has been room to grow and improve the training programs offered.
