Beech Mountain Community News

This past Saturday, Beech Mountain Community Center was honored to host the Avery County High School Future Farmers of America banquet. The banquet was an incredible success. We had 145 people who attended the event, including FFA members, their family and friends, teachers and members of the community. The theme for this year’s FFA banquet was The Wizard of Oz. Kevin Jones, a former FFA state officer, was the speaker for the event. Codie Hicks, Dakota Guy and Carson Clark were also honored for their hard work and dedication to the FFA, and had their FFA coats retired. Numerous awards were presented to the students in the FFA. Overall, everyone had a fantastic time.
