ESC Employment Honor Goes to Mountain View Correctional Institution

RALEIGH - Mountain View Correctional Institution was honored with a 2000 Employment Security Commission (ESC) Employer Award on March 28 during an evening reception at the North Carolina Museum of History.

ESC Chairman Raymond W. Goodman Jr. presented the award to R. David Mitchell, Superintendent. Mountain View Correctional Institution was one of 81 employers who received the award for exceptional contribution to the North Carolina economy through new business, business expansion and partnership with ESC.

"The businesses recognized with this award reflect some of the best and brightest in North Carolina," Goodman said. "Each of them share in our goal of keeping workers productive and shaping our state’s economic success through expansion and an effective partnership with government."

Marshall; members of the General Assembly; Secretary of Commerce Jim Fain; Lorna McNeill, Miss North Carolina 2000; community college, public, and private college and university presidents; and economic and community developers from across the state.

The ESC Employer Awards, first given in 1987, are sponsored by the ESC and the State Job Service Employer Committee (JSEC), one of North Carolina’s largest employer associations. JSEC was started in North Carolina in 1975 as a dynamic public-private sector partnership to improve ESC service delivery. There are currently JSEC committees in each of N.C.’s 100 counties and more than 1,500 members statewide.
