Haywood Community College’s Board of Trustees and Interim President Dr. Bill Aiken recently presented fire chiefs from Clyde, Junaluska, and Waynesville Fire Departments with certificates of appreciation for their help with the college’s Sawmill Fire. “While the circumstances were unfortunate ones, I watched in amazement at the skill that all of you displayed as you worked together in minimizing the loss to Haywood Community College,” Aiken told the firefighters. “The competence, proficiency, and expertise that all of you displayed was impressive. Above all, your spirit of cooperation contributed in a positive way to helping reduce the potential for more of a loss to the college.”

Please note that it is the Junaluska Community Volunteer Fire Dept., not the Lake Junaluska Fire Dept.  I have been an active firefighter on that dept. for 27 years and this is an ongoing misnomer.  Fire protection to Lake Junaluska Assembly is provided by the Town of Waynesville, not our dept.

Thank you.
