Sheriff’s deputy honored with life-saving award

Sheriff’s deputy Carley Swiggett got a hero’s welcome from Alamance County’s leaders last week after he provided some timely first aid to a stabbing victim in August.

Last Monday (November15), the county’s board of commissioners invited Swiggett to the commissioners’ meeting to receive a special life-saving award from his boss, sheriff Terry Johnson; Swiggett’s fiancé, Melissa Ramirez, was also present for the presentation.

County commissioners gave Swiggett a standing ovation for his heroic actions.
