Rowan roundup: Printing company earns safety award from state

Diversified Graphics Inc., a design, printing and publishing company, has been honored for outstanding work in accident prevention by the N.C. Department of Labor.
The Salisbury firm has had 10 consecutive years without a lost-time accident. It has had only four lost-time accidents in its nearly 35 years of existence.
Cherie Berry, N.C. Labor Commissioner, presented the awards to nearly 2,300 North Carolina companies that met the safety awards program criteria this year, the largest number since 1946. She also noted the injury and illness rate is at an all-time low, and fatalities are also declining.
“This could not have been accomplished without the outstanding effort of every employee of our firm and their constant striving to create a safe work environment,” said Diane Goodnight, Diversified Graphics vice president.
Teaching approval
Staci Maher, broker-in-charge at Dream Weaver Properties, has received approval from the N.C. Real Estate Commission to teach pre- and post-licensing classes.
Requirements for teaching approval include the number of years in the business, education and previous teaching experience. Applicants must also submit a video of themselves teaching a class that is reviewed by various members of the Real Estate Commission before approval.
Lois Branning, head of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College’s real estate program, asked Maher to seek teaching approval since the program needed additional teaching staff.
Maher will begin teaching at RCCC in August. For information on how to register for classes, visit www. rowancabarrus.edu.

Sonic honor
Rockwell’s Sonic Drive-In crew is one of 300 in the running to make the final 12 teams that will participate in the 14th annual Dr Pepper Sonic Games National Finals in Palmetto, Fla., Sept. 15-16.
“The crew should be proud of their hard work and dedication,” said Nelson Taylor, vice president of operations services for Sonic Industries. “Dr Pepper Sonic Games is a unique and fun experience that encourages employees to deliver outstanding customer service. It also provides opportunities to learn about goal setting, responsibility and teamwork.”
The nine-month Olympic-style competition evaluates individual crew members for: Carhop (food delivery), Fountain (drink preparation), Switchboard (service delivery), Dresser, Grill and Swamp (food preparation). Crew members compete on an individual and team basis. Top executives will honor the winners with gold, silver and bronze medals. More than 2,700 drive-ins across the country competed.
Rockwell’s Sonic is at 940 W. Main St.
