For the third year, Halifax Community College will hold its Progressive Community Awards ceremony.
Twelve community partners and 10 employees from HCC will be bestowed with the Community Bridge Builder Award on March 31 at 6 p.m. during a virtual ceremony.
This year’s program will highlight bridge builders in the community who worked to reduce and eliminate COVID-19 in Halifax and Northampton counties.
The partners were chosen because they partnered with the health departments of Halifax and Northampton counties to provide COVID-19 screening, vaccination and testing services, and other support.
HCC President Michael Elam also chose employees at the college who played a major role in Halifax County’s COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic being held at HCC.
The event will begin at 6 p.m.
