HCC’s Jenny Carver Presented Award by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission recently presented Jenny Carver, Haywood Community College secretary to the Division of Natural Resources, an award of recognition. The award shows appreciation for almost 10 years that Carver has coordinated Hunter’s Safety, Boating Safety, and Bow Hunter’s Safety training on the HCC campus.

“Miss Carver volunteers countless time in handling the set up and registration of all participants in the program,” says Darrin Ball, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Specialist District 9 of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. “She does a great service to all the sportsmen and women of Haywood County. Her work is greatly appreciated.”

HCC’s Natural Resources Division in cooperation with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission offers these courses several times a year as a community service to the public free of charge. Carver acts as a liaison to the commission and handles all details of each course including set up and registration.

Carver first came to HCC as a student receiving an associate degree in Secretarial Science in 1985 and General Education in 1997. While a student, she began work as a work-study and has been at HCC for over 20 years through four presidents and three name changes.

While Carver has worked in Natural Resources since 1997, she also spent time as a secretary in Adult Basic Skills and College Transfer, as well as the switchboard operator.

Carver is a member of the N.C. Association of Educational Office Professionals. She volunteers at Catch Clinic, hunter safety, boating safety, bow hunter safety, Intercollegiate Woodsmen’s Day, and all divisional club’s fund raising events. Carver contributes to many charities such as Manna Food Bank, the Eblen Foundation, and the National Wildlife Federation.

Carver enjoys spending time with her family and two Jack Russell Terriers, baking, and traveling. As a big fan of the outdoors, she enjoys such activities as flower gardening, photographing old barns, fishing, camping, and horseback riding.
