August 1, 2018
Community & Senior Services of Johnston County is pleased to announce that the Benson Center for Active Aging is now a state certified, Senior Center of Excellence! Johnston County has three Centers for Active Aging; Selma, Clayton, Benson, all of which are now certified as Centers of Excellence. Initial Certification is a 2-year process to demonstrate proficiency in 6 program areas culminating in a site visit comprised of a team of NC Division of Aging and Adult Services staff, UNC CARES staff, Senior Tarheel legislator, Area Agency on Aging staff, and senior center professionals. The certification period lasts five years after which the center must apply for recertification. Community Services Director Sarah Hammond commented, “We encourage everyone 50 and over to join us at one of the centers located in Benson, Clayton and Selma. The centers offer a diverse range of programming and services to fit everyone’s needs and interests.” Executive Director Neal Davis commented, “Having all three of our centers certified at the level of ‘Excellence’ is a milestone event that would not be possible without the fantastic effort our staff puts forth every day.”
