Business Milestones: Biscuitville features Red Clay Gourmet pimento cheese | Local

Achievers

Biscuitville Fresh Southern will feature Red Clay Gourmet’s flame roasted jalapeño pimento cheese spread on its menu starting this month.

Red Clay Gourmet produces its pimento cheese at its Winston-Salem headquarters facility. Michele and Lance Sawyer started the company in 2011 after more than a decade operating First Street Draught House in Winston-Salem.

Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist has been recognized for its Registered Nurse Apprenticeship Program that is offered in partnership with Davidson-Davie Community College.

ApprenticeshipNC, an organization that helps employers establish registered apprenticeships and build skilled workforces, named the health system as the recipient of the 2022 Outstanding Registered Apprenticeship Program Award at its annual conference held March 15 in Wilmington.

The innovative program, which began in 2020 and is the first of its kind to be approved by the N.C. Department of Labor, allows aspiring registered nurses who graduate from the community college with their LPN certification to receive their RN degree in 24 months. The process typically takes 36 months. This expedited timeline is possible, without affecting the quality of instruction, because the training takes place in acute care settings at Davie Medical Center and Lexington Medical Center — two community hospitals within the Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist system.
