Twenty students graduated from Surry Community College’s Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) Program recently and passed the State Comprehensive Written Examination administered by the North Carolina Department of Justice, Criminal Standards Division. This is the 12th consecutive SCC BLET class to earn a 100 percent passing rate for the exam.

Lucia Luis and Randi Wooten received the Max Blackburn Award, which was created to honor the original law enforcement director for SCC. Max Blackburn established the BLET program at the college and was a well-respected educator in the region. BLET instructors vote for students who demonstrate the most positive attributes of a law enforcement officer in the Max Blackburn Award process.

Cody D. Smith, Charlie Nichols, and Humberto Lujano were given the Greg Martin Award, which honors the memory of Patrol Sgt. Gregory Keith Martin of the Jonesville Police Department, who was a BLET graduate from SCC killed in the line of duty. The Greg Martin Award recipient is selected by a class vote when students elect whom they would most want as a backup officer on a serious call.

Mark Ferguson and Humberto Lujano received the Ernest L. Yokely Award for having the highest score on the Firearms Topic. The written test score, daytime and nighttime firing scores were all averaged on each student.

Eric Smith and Austin McMillian were recognized for achieving the fastest Police Officer Physical Abilities Test times among their respective classmates. Joseph Johnson was commended for obtaining the top average in the day class, as was Rebecca Roman for the top average and top score on the state exam in the night class; Mark Ferguson was recognized for receiving the top score on the state exam amongst those in the day class. Both classes had an overall 100 percent pass-rate for the state exam.
