Avery Sheriff Kevin Frye was initiated as president of the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association at the 91st annual Training Conference Banquet, held at the Hilton Wilmington Riverside in Wilmington on July 30.

More than 300 guests, including active and retired sheriffs and their spouses, and Frye’s family, co-workers and friends, including Avery County Commissioner Glenn Johnson and his wife, Deliah, attended the event.

Special guests present on behalf of Frye included Congressman Mark Meadows, representative of North Carolina Congressional District 11, Associate Justice Paul M. Newby of the Supreme Court of North Carolina and W. David Guice, commissioner of the N.C. Division of Adult Correction.

Frye was elected president of the N.C. Sheriffs’ Association by the member sheriffs and assumed the office after serving as first vice president during the 2012-13 fiscal year. He is the first Western North Carolina sheriff to receive the honor of president of the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association since 2004, when the sheriff of Wilkes County held the office.
