Our Hometown Hero of the week is Dwight Curington, a Sheriff from Lenoir County!
Dwight was nominated by Jessica who said: Dwight is the kind of person who gives everything his all and then some. His job is no exception to this. He has always wanted to be in a position where he could help others because that is a huge part of who he is. Being a part of the Sheriff’s Office in Lenoir County is more than just a career for him, it is a calling. He has served for nine years and has advanced through several different positions at that time. He is currently a Detective, has a K9, and serves on the Special Response Team. There are many days/nights that he is away from home longer than he is supposed to be because when one of his “team” needs help, Dwight is there for them. Even on his days off, when he sees a person who needs help, he is there to help whether it is to change a tire, push a car out of the street, help the elderly, etc. I am so proud of him and all his accomplishments. He works hard each day and never knows what type of situation the day will bring. Regardless of the risks and chances he takes while on the job, he continues to do it with a humble heart. I love him with all I have. He is my hero today, and every day.
Thank you, Dwight, for your service! We’re sending you a gift card to Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q to thank you for all you do!
