NORTH CENTRAL MARKS COMPLETION OF THIRD CORRECTIONS ACADEMY
Eight graduates representing five counties now certified to work in correctional facilities
North Central Michigan College marked the graduation of eight members of the college’s 3rd Michigan Sheriffs’ Coordinating and Training Council (MSCTC) corrections academy on March 13, 2020. Five Michigan counties are represented in this class, and all graduates are now certified by the MSCTC to work in correctional facilities. Deputies are required to obtain this certification within one year of being hired.
Graduates include Deputy Evelyn Boyer (Emmet County), Deputies Lacey Macleod-Beaudoin and Zachary O'Henley (Cheboygan County), Deputy Joshua Vorce (Gladwin County), Deputy Ethan Jermeay (Mackinac County), and Deputies Brian Kline and Denver Klein (Montmorency County). Markus Thomas graduated alongside the deputies as a pre-service recruit who will soon join the deputy ranks.
“Although safety precautions due to COVID-19 meant our formal graduation ceremony was canceled, President David Roland Finley and I were able to present the graduates with their awards,” said Jim Cousino, North Central’s associate dean of Public Service Programs.
The top Academic Award was presented to Deputy Evelyn Boyer. The Spirit Award was presented to Deputy Zach O’Henley, who encouraged and inspired the recruits during the four-week academy, Cousino said. The class honored Instructor Bruce Hill (retired) as the Exemplary Instructor of the academy.
