WILMINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE) — Today, Cape Fear Community College students will honor the memory of a former student who died in Iraq while serving with the National Guard.

Students in CFCC’s Occupational Therapy Assisting program will present the family of Jocelyn Carrasquillo with an honorary award to celebrate his memory.
