CFCC honors fallen National Guardsmen with annual award

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Students at Cape Fear Community College are honoring the memory of a former student who died in Iraq while serving with the National Guard.

Tuesday afternoon, students in CFCC's Occupational Therapy Assisting program presented Jocelyn Carrasquillo's family with an honorary way to celebrate his memory – an annual award to recognize a current CFCC student who demonstrates outstanding performance and dedication to the study of occupational therapy.

Carraquillo was enrolled at CFCC to become an occupational therapist but was killed by a roadside bomb while on active duty in Iraq in 2004. He was only two months away from graduation at the time.
