Aiken Technical College to Rename Building in Memory of On-Campus Deputy
Aiken Technical College (ATC) will soon rename its Security Building in memory of Sgt. John McCord.
The Aiken County Commission for Technical and Comprehensive Education, the College’s governing board, reviewed and approved the College’s proposal to change the building’s name during the Commission’s monthly meeting held August 10.
Sgt. McCord served the College as its on-campus deputy from the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) for about a decade until he passed away on July 3.
“Sgt. McCord was well-respected by our students, employees, and the community. He never hesitated to go above and beyond to serve others. The opportunity to rename our Security Building after him is a way for us to recognize his contributions and honor his legacy for years to come,” said ATC President Dr. Forest Mahan.
The Security Building serves as the central campus office for the College’s security operations as well as a substation for ACSO.
A ceremony will be held at a later date to reveal the building’s new name and honor Sgt. McCord.
