PCC Hosts Signing Ceremony for Students Hired by T.A. Loving

WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College held a signing ceremony this month to recognize six students who have accepted full-time positions with T.A Loving, a Goldsboro-based commercial construction company.

The reception, which T.A. Loving sponsored, took place May 2, giving PCC personnel a chance to celebrate the achievements of Building Construction Technology graduates Ezequiel Adjuntas, John Jenkins, Thomas Mizelle, Hunter Sanders and Benjamin Sasser and Architectural Technology graduate Ikechukwu Odili with the students’ families and friends.

PCC students preparing to intern with T.A. Loving were also on hand to support their classmates, as were representatives from the company, including Senior Vice President Ty Edmondson, Vice President of Field Operations Paul Hunter, and project managers Jim Britt and Justin Hill.

“It was important for us to sponsor the event to show our commitment to these new hires,” Edmondson said. “We have been very pleased with the product that is coming out of Pitt Community College, and we’re excited for these students to start their professional careers with T.A. Loving.”

In addition to signing letters of intent, the student honorees received customized, T.A. Loving ball caps in PCC school colors along with personal protective equipment they’ll utilize in their roles with the company.

“This signing event really meant a lot to the students and showed them the level of value they hold with their soon-to-be employer,” said PCC Career Outreach Specialist Rachel Bridgers.

Bridgers, who coordinated the event with PCC Building Construction Technology Department Chair Maurey Verzier and T.A. Loving Corporate Recruiter Karol Crews, says T.A. Loving has made a “strong investment” in PCC students. She noted that several Pitt alumni currently work for the company.

Edmondson said T.A. Loving intends to make the PCC signing ceremony an annual occasion, adding, “We hope to see the interns who are in the crowd tonight at this [signing] table next spring.”
