Commemorative Yearbook Being Created For CVCC Paramedic Program, Information Requested

The Catawba Valley Community College Paramedic program is working with Redhawk Publications and Creative Solutions on a commemorative yearbook celebrating the 35th anniversary of accreditation — the first in the NC Community College system — and the alumni classes from 1981 through 2022.

The Paramedic Program alumni are asked to visit to submit updated information, photos, memories, career updates and other news to be published in the CVCC Paramedic Program Commemorative Yearbook. Memorial and dedication pages in the yearbook will be available for purchase.

The yearbook will be available for pre-order online at and at the CVCC Paramedic Program Alumni Reunion and 35th Anniversary Celebration of Accreditation to be held at the Tarlton Complex on Friday, April 28 from 6 to 9 pm. The proceeds will benefit the CVCC Paramedic program.
