If your grandmother was with us today she would be just so proud of you. And I believe in you. Something wonderful is going to happen. Hey! Brett! How's it going man? Good. It's good to see you. Have a seat. It's been a while. It's been a long while. So what have you been up to? I'm actually going back to school to be a firefighter. What's going on? How was the interview? I got the job! I'm so proud of you! That's awesome! When I lay down at night, I want to know I've made a difference in someone's life. At first I had no idea how challenging or rewarding it would be. But helping people is my passion. Every patient has a story. A lifetime of experiences so I treat them like my own family. They deserve loving care and compassion. I remember as a kid going into my granddad's workshop. He'd give me a tool and show me something to do. He encouraged me. That always made me feel so good to see the finished product and the joy it brought to someone's face. The tools are different and now the workshop's a lot bigger. There's a lot of technology in every airplane. Composites, avionics, engines... and we're making them all right here in North Carolina. Together what can't we create? What little boy doesn't dream of being a firefighter when he grows up? The cool trucks, the heavy gear... The feeling that you're really helping people. There's always something new to learn... new tools, new techniques. And the community college is where to get that. As firefighters, we're a team. No matter what the crisis I know that somebody has my back and I'm watching there's. People are counting on us. No one wants to think about a fire in their community, but when it happens We'll be there. You can count on it.


Early life

Iredell was born in Chowan County, North Carolina. He was the son of well-known parents: his father, James Iredell, was a statesman and U.S. Supreme Court justice, and his mother was the sister of former Governor Samuel Johnston. In 1806, young Iredell graduated from the College of New Jersey (today Princeton University).

On his way toward political prominence, Iredell commanded a company of volunteers during the War of 1812, practiced law in Chowan County, served in the state House of Commons, as a representative from Edenton, and was appointed a Superior Court judge.

Iredell kept a diary, which was rare among the North Carolina gentry at that time and provides researchers with a glimpse into the life of that time period.[1]

Governor and U.S. Senator

During his short term as governor, he pushed for better infrastructure and education. Reacting to an interest of the day—horse-drawn railroad carriages—he suggested the construction of a trial railroad from Campbellton to Fayetteville.

However, his brief time in office (and the inherent weaknesses of the governor under the Constitution of North Carolina) did not allow him to accomplish much.[citation needed] He left office after a few months to serve in the U.S. Senate, a post he held from 1828 to 1831. He was completing the term of Nathaniel Macon, who had resigned. By that time, Iredell was a Jacksonian, or member of the Democratic Party. Iredell did not seek to be re-elected by the state General Assembly to a full term in the Senate. He moved to Raleigh, practiced law, and served as court reporter for the North Carolina Supreme Court from 1840 to 1852. He died in Edenton and is buried there in the Johnston Burial Ground.
