The Nash Community College Ambassador Award is given each year to a full-time employee or group of employees who provide outstanding representation of the college in the community.

The 2018 recipient is the NCC CDL program.

Nash Community College and SAGE Corp., the nation’s premier operator of professional truck driving programs, offer truck driver training by providing skill development with maximum actual driving time. SAGE is a commercial driver training program teaching the in-depth, hands-on truck driving experience sought by employers.

Students drive trucks during training, which serve as mobile billboards throughout the region representing the college program. Both SAGE and the Nash Community College CDL program are known as regional ambassadors promoting the college.

NCC has its own CDL examiners, serves as an official CDL testing facility and is a member of the North Carolina Truckers Association. The truck driver training program offers continuous enrollment, affordable tuition and employer tuition reimbursement plans available to qualified applicants. Students receive lifetime job placement assistance, a guarantee of only one student per truck, and small classes with individualized attention.
