Aiken Technical College Dedicates and Renames Campus Security Building

Aiken Technical College (ATC) held a private dedication ceremony on March 30 to formally rename its security building the John E. McCord Campus Security Building.

Sgt. McCord was employed by the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) and was assigned to ATC as its on-campus deputy for more than 10 years until his death in July 2020. The building is the central campus office for the College’s security operations and is a substation for the ACSO.

“Sgt. McCord was beloved by the Aiken Technical College family as much as he was by his blood relatives and law enforcement colleagues,” said Dr. Forest E. Mahan, President of Aiken Technical College. “He protected the campus and the many people who gained knowledge, earned a living, and visited our campus for ten years. It is only fitting that we dedicate the building in his memory as a physical reminder of the emotional connection he shared with others through his constant smile, caring and magnetic personality, influential presence, humility, and kindness.”

During the ceremony, remarks were shared from Sgt. McCord’s family members and ACSO Sherriff Michael Hunt with attendees, including family and friends of Sgt. McCord, ATC students and employees, and ACSO deputies and officials.

A dedication plaque located inside the building was unveiled following the ceremony. The plaque states:

“The John E. McCord Campus Security Building is dedicated in memory of exemplary service, commitment, and devotion to Aiken Technical College.
Dated March 30, 2022”

The building’s exterior signage will be updated to reflect the new name as part of a campus-wide signage update later in the year.
