Our Hometown Hero of the week is David Hutchison, an NC Dept. of Public Safety as a Correctional Officer from Wayne County!
David was nominated by Ginger who said: David Hutchison is a man of God, honor, and valor. He served in the US Air Force for 22 1/2 years for his country. He currently works for the NC Dept. of Public Safety as a Correctional Officer at Neuse Correctional Institution. He works tirelessly serving his community and the state prison system. Over the last 10 years, Officer Hutchison has worked at times 7 days a week 12-14 hour days & during crisis situations has volunteered to work 24 to 48-hour shifts in order to protect his community.
He is always available to lend a helping hand when the unit is under a crisis code, or to a family, friend, or stranger. Last year, he was promoted to Intake Officer which allowed him to be more active with the in-processing & out-processing of offenders in or out of the prison system. David has been known to give a stranger a ride, change a tire on the side of the road, pay for gas or groceries for someone in need. David is a humble man and often does not request to be acknowledged for his efforts. He gives because he is a man of God and wants to serve others.
Thank you, David, 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!
