Our Employment Awards are newly named to honor the hard work and dedication of both Audrey & Jim Harriman who tirelessly and graciously gave countless years of service to our committee. Jim served our committee until his death in July 2016. His gentle smile and quick wit are greatly missed by our committee. Audrey continued to serve until December 2016 upon relocating to Wake County. Audrey blessed us with a such a vast knowledge of life as well as an infallible ability to organize and execute any task with compassion and precision. We appreciate the richness of service given not only to Randolph County Mayors Committee for Disabled Persons but to the community at large.
