Department Chair, Environmental and Natural Resources

“Everything we do deals with managing resources and protecting the environment.” It seems like a simple description, but Josh Castleberry’s programs are anything but simplistic. Offering two associate degrees: Environmental Engineering Technology and Natural Resources Management, and three certificates: Environmental, Health and Safety Certificate; Water Operator Certificate; and Wastewater Operator Certificate, CCTC’s Environmental and Natural Resources programs cover almost any natural resources career opportunity available.

Castleberry has 18 years of experience and an infectious enthusiasm that spreads to his students. So infectious, that in 2013, he was selected as the South Carolina Governor’s Professor of the Year (for two-year colleges). During his 10 years at CCTC, he has seen his programs blossom and his students succeed. For the 2014-15 academic year, the Environmental and Natural Resources programs’ job placement rate was an impressive 95 percent.

“If you have a love for the outdoors, a willingness to learn and an active lifestyle, we can put you where you need to be,” says Castleberry. With a need for more young people in the field, Environmental and Natural Resources is a smart choice for those interested in a rewarding career preserving natural resources while also protecting the environment.
