On The Move!

These youngsters at the Henderson Family YMCA, shown in the photo at left above, are on the move, twisting and turning and getting some serious exercise as a part of the Y’s after-school program. The girls in the photo at right were on the move in another way — climbing to the top of the Babe Ruth World Series and bringing a championship trophy home to Henderson.

ATHLETICS GO A LONG WAY IN GETTING KIDS READY FOR LIFE

t’s not just a game. It may appear as elementary as putting a bat on a ball or swimming faster than the kid in the other lane. According to most area leaders in athletics, sports and physical activity can have a more impacting and long-lasting effect on youth in Vance County than just winning a game or defeating an opponent. The positives that accompany participating in athletic activities can begin at young ages, with an array of sporting options in the area provided by organizaISION ance V

tions like the YMCA, the HendersonVance Recreation and Parks Department, area Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) squads and local schools. For Woody Caudle, executive director of the Henderson YMCA, keeping children active leads to “improving the Caudle quality of life” in the community. “Our whole purpose is to be active and to keep them doing something all 4

the time,” said Caudle. “Certainly, the main driver today is the obesity crisis (and how it’s affecting young people).” Henderson’s Y opened in 1990 with the provision of youth sports and swimming lessons serving as the primary goal of the facility. Caudle said that now about 500 kids ages 3-12 participate in sports like basketball, soccer, tee ball and volleyball. The Y also offers a children’s aerobic exercise program after school. Around 130 children participate in the after-school program with the same

number scheduled to take part in the upcoming summer program that features arts and crafts as well as bowling field trips and a visit to the Triangle to watch the Durham Bulls play. “Of course I’m biased, but I think the Y offers a lot to the community,” Caudle said. “There’s a reason why we have ‘family’ in our name, Henderson Family YMCA. We want to encourage families to be involved.” There may not have been a better representative for the community than the 2010 Henderson/Vance Babe Ruth World Series champions. The 16-under

Jason Brown returned home again this spring to show his appreciation to community volunteers as a sponsor for HendersonVance Spring Litter Sweep Clean-Up Day hosted by the local appearance commissions. NFL star and the St. Louis Rams’ reigning Man of the Year, the Henderson native distributed T-shirts to volunteers. His foundation, Wisdom of Life Ministry, paid for a luncheon for volunteers and gave cash awards to those who collected the most debris. Brown received the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award from the Rams in 2010 for his community service as well as his on-thefield performance. His passion for community service was evident when the Rams signed him in 2009. In addition to his own foundation, Brown volunteered his time in the St. Louis community and became the honorary spokesperson for a program designed to combat the dropout rate. He partici-

All-Stars’ national championship in Virginia last summer helped to show how far girls’ sports and the HendersonVance Recreation and Parks Department’s programs have come. “When softball started 20 years ago with just a couple of teams, nobody thought we could have gone that far,” said Recreation and Parks Director Gill Alan Gill. Youth sports at the Rec Department are open to ages as young as 5. Gill said the overarching 5

Jason Brown pated in numerous Rams’ community activities. His greatest passion, however, is military and veteran outreach. Brown has a personal connection to the military as his brother, Lunsford Bernard Brown II, was killed while serving in Iraq in September 2003. The son of Bernard and Deborah Brown of Vance County, Jason was a standout lineman and track and field athlete at Northern Vance High School and played for the University of NFL — CONTINUED ON PAGE 12

objective is for children to learn new sports, develop those sports’ skills and, most importantly, have fun. “If they’re not having fun, they won’t participate very long,” he said. The Rec Department also offers Vance Aquatics, a swim team, as well as the Henderson Rec Players, a community theater program. North Carolina AAU Tackle Football Director Joe Brodie is doing his part in keeping youths active.

Brodie â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, I see a great need to help families around here,â&#x20AC;? Brodie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a yearround program, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just in a football season. You can actually monitor their progress.â&#x20AC;? Brodie uses football as a recruiting tool for his other passion, the Boy Scouts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They see (youth playing) football, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see (themselves participating in) scouting,â&#x20AC;? said Brodie, the Troop 620 scout leader.

Southern Vance High School Athletic Director Ed Wilson insists, â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more to coaching than teaching just Xâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.â&#x20AC;? According to Wilson, coaches often serve as â&#x20AC;&#x153;psychologists and social workersâ&#x20AC;? and, at Southern, keeping students eligible to play is a major Wilson focus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our biggest role is trying to keep kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grades up,â&#x20AC;? said Wilson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play unless they are eligible. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great motivator. A lot of kids stay in school because of sports.â&#x20AC;? A representative from the National Collegiate Scouting Association recently spoke to a group of Raider athletes, preaching the importance of sports and their ability to develop discipline and teach teamwork. The representative said many businesses look to hire athletes because of those qualities. Wilson said he spends a lot of time convincing students that playing at an NCAA Division I school isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only route to take. Opportunities can also be found on the Division II, III or community college levels. The NCSA spokesperson also told Wilson that an average-size school has done â&#x20AC;&#x153;goodâ&#x20AC;? to produce one Division I athlete a year. Southern already has at least one for 2010-2011: Hakim Jones, who signed to play football at N.C. State. At Northern Vance High School, Athletic Director David Hicks is also looking outside of the lines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It still provides a great opportunity for them to participate in Hicks interscholastic sports. For me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been about representing your school and your community,â&#x20AC;? said Hicks.

BIG One! KERR LAKE!

“The Big One” aptly refers to Kerr Lake — whether you are speaking of the enormous size of the lake itself or the size of the fish you can pull from its waters, such as this four-pound largemouth bass reeled in by local columnist Walt Bowen. In the background is Nutbush Bridge, also called Neathery’s Bridge. Enthusiasts would want to know the fish was caught on a Number 6 Fat Free Shad.

COLUMNIST WALT BOWEN SAYS KERR LAKE BIG ON BEAUTY, WILDLIFE AND — OF COURSE — FISHING

O

f all the major lakes in North Carolina, Kerr Lake (known to some as Buggs Island Lake) is in my opinion the most scenic and beautiful. Due primarily to limitations on shoreline construction (the U.S. Corps of Engineers owns over 70 percent of the shoreline and manages this in its natural state) along with its distance from a major metropolitan area (Raleigh, over 40 miles away), most of the lake looks the same today as it did over 40 years ago when I was a little boy. There is very little boat traffic congestion, except for during a brief time around the Fourth of July. Even

then there are plenty of places where you can get away from the crowds if you don’t mind driving your boat a short distance. During the winter there are hardly any boats on the water except for a few hardy fishermen out for a day of striped bass or blue catfish fishing. Stripers up to 20 pounds and blue cats over 50 are possible catches on any given day. You are likely to see bald eagles, otter and deer swimming across the lake or at the water’s edge, turkeys taking flight across a cove as you fish close by, and a variety of turtles. There is even the occasional report of a migrating black bear passing through the area while relocating 10

between the mountains and the coastal plain. I have enjoyed fishing and other water sports on Kerr Lake nearly all of my life, beginning 40 years ago with my granddaddy, Cutter Robertson. My childhood dream was to ride my motor bike around the entire lake — with its more than 850 miles of shoreline covering nearly 50,000 acres. I never did get around to doing that, but I have pulled my boat up on There’s no cooler spot to be on a hot-as-a-firecracker Fourth of July!

He completed his basic education in the Vance County Public Schools and went on to complete his bachelor of science degree in Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. In addition to successfully raising a family of three children with his wife of nearly 30 years, Susan Davis Barnett Bowen of Henderson, he has launched a successful career as an information technol-

ogy executive with worldwide responsibilities for computer systems at a Fortune 500 corporation. Walt has also spent nearly all his spare time over the past 15 years pursuing a hobby that has become a second career. Bass fishing — in particularly tournament bass fishing, in events at all but the highest levels of the sport — has grown from a pastime enjoyed with his son Jimmie into a part time job with extensions into outdoor writing and a weekly fishing report in the Dispatch. Walt has developed his skills

in the sport of bass fishing to levels needed to place consistently in the money in nearly two thirds of the events he enters, with frequent top finishes and occasional wins. Examples are: 2010 Fishers of Men at Kerr Lake – 1st place with Vern Fleming; 2010 Bassmaster Weekend Series 2 day Divisional event at Kerr Lake – 14th place; 2010 Mid Atlantic – Falls Lake – won a team tournament alone by a large margin; 2009 November American Bass Anglers at Kerr – 1st; 2009 BFL at Lake Gaston – 14th; 2006 Fishers 11

of Men at Lake Gaston – 3rd with son Jimmie; 2002 Carolinian Bass Anglers 2 day Classic at Hyco Lake – 1st; and 2000 Fishers of Men at Kerr Lake with wife Susan – 1st. Now residing in Walnut Cove, Walt and Susan feel extremely fortunate to have a small cabin on the shores of Kerr Lake. His long term goals include winning a top tier bass tournament and making a living in the sport of bass fishing through a combination of tournament winnings, writing earnings and product sales earnings.

One Million and Counting... LOCAL PHARMACY TRIPLES SPACE WITH EXPANSION Filling over one million new prescriptions, Chocky White and Medical Arts Pharmacy have become fixtures in Henderson medicine over the past 40 years. White grew up in Warrenton and attended John Graham High School before going to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He graduated with a bachelor of science degree in pharmacy in 1969. After one year of working with Harris Pharmacy in Louisburg, White moved to Henderson and opened Medical Arts Pharmacy in 1971. “When I first opened the store, I was the only pharmacist and the only employee,” White said. “I didn’t hire my second employee until several years later.” Medical Arts Pharmacy now employs four pharmacists — the fourth being hired earlier this year — and 15 technicians. “We have been mighty fortunate to be in business this long,” White said. “To grow even when the economy is so bad is really a blessing.” Among White’s employees are son, Brent, a specialist with Durable Medical Equipment, and his daughter, Cara Kirby, a medicine management specialist. Both have been employees for a little over a year. “My dad has done a wonderful job making the pharmacy what it is today,” Kirby said. “We are really proud of him.” Medical Arts Pharmacy filled its one millionth new prescription in January, reaching a milestone White never imagined. “The millionth new prescription has made us so encouraged that we have been able to maintain the business for this long,” White said. “It shows us we are doing something right — to have gained the loyalty of so many customers.”

Pharmacist Chocky White opened his Medical Arts Pharmacy in Henderson in 1971. He now has four pharmacists and 15 technicians in his newly expanded facility.

The pharmacy just wrapped up a new expansion in January, too, expanding its former 1,200 square-foot space into a roomy 3,600 square feet. “We started out with only 600 square feet. When we were busy, it seemed like people were standing shoulder to shoulder,” White said. “We have been in cramped quarters for over 38 years and the space we have now is much needed and refreshing.” 15

White has been the sole owner of Medical Arts Pharmacy since it opened, but that may change in the upcoming year. “One of our current pharmacists, Bill Tippett, is considering buying into the pharmacy,” White said. “He will be a partner soon, which will be good for business because he is very well known Medical Arts — CONTINUED ON PAGE 16 ISION ance V

nationally certiďŹ ed teachers with 17,957 in the state out of more than 91,000 nationwide. The Henderson-Vance Chamber of Commerce continued a tradition of recognizing the newly certiďŹ ed teachers and counselors at its annual banquet, awarding them plaques to go along with a monetary gift from the Vance County Public School Foundation. The Teacher of the Year, Boyd, is a 40-year teaching veteran now instructing civics and economics to 10th graders at Southern Vance High School. She has adapted teaching styles to keep up to date with the times, she said. As Principal of the Year, Harris at New Hope Elementary School is credited with having high expectations for her students and for embracing volunteers for the valuable assistance they provide. Also at the annual banquet, the Townsville Lions Club received the Shining Moment in Education Award from Vance County Public Schools as the school systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most outstanding business partner for 2010-2011.

White never regrets choosing Henderson as his home and the foundation for his business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being in a town this size, it has major growth potential but is still small enough where everyone can get to know you,â&#x20AC;? White said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In big cities like Raleigh and Durham, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get that.â&#x20AC;? First Baptist Church is where White and his wife of 42 years, Nettie, spend much of their time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are really involved with the church and it has become a large part of our lives,â&#x20AC;? he said. In his free time, White loves to play tennis. He is a member of the Henderson Country Club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I play tennis with lots of people at the country club, since golf has never been my game,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have developed great relationships through tennis and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trade them for the world.â&#x20AC;? White lives, works, worships and plays in Henderson and says he has no plans on going anywhere else.

From team building to community projects, Leadership Vance seeks to inform, challenge and educate its participants on the opportunities and needs of our community.

Equipping Tomorrow’s Leaders Today F

or more than two decades, the Henderson-Vance Chamber of Commerce has been equipping a diverse group of local citizens with the tools they need to become informed, dedicated leaders in the community. Leadership Vance is a five-month program that seeks to inform, challenge and educate its participants on the opportunities and needs of the community. “The whole philosophy is that these people will make better community leaders if they are educated and know about every aspect of Henderson and Vance County,” Rachel Hedrick, Chamber membership director and LV organizer, said. “Participants strengthen their leader-

ship skills while learning about the social, economic and political dynamics that shape our community.” A maximum of 25 participants is chosen by a selection committee with participants chosen to represent all backgrounds, occupations and geographic areas of the county. The response from participants has been impressive over the years. Jon Dorsey of RBC Bank highly recommends the program: “Leadership Vance is a wonderful way for people new to the area, as well as Henderson natives, to learn more about our community.” Added KaKeasha Richardson, physician assistant at Henderson Wellness Center, “As a Vance County native, 17

I was pleasantly surprised to learn so much more about the inner workings of Vance County. This experience has better prepared me for my current and future leadership roles in the community.” Michael Noble, the director of facilities management for Maria Parham Medical Center, is not a native of Henderson. “Coming from outside of Vance County, Leadership Vance helped me gain a new and sincere respect for the people and businesses here. I really appreciate the work and commitment that goes into the everyday operations of Vance County and the business community.” Ten sessions of Leadership Vance foLeadership — CONTINUED ON PAGE 18 ISION ance V

cus on education, government, economic development, law enforcement and the courts, agri-business, health, community resources, history and media. Leadership Vance participants take tours of various places in community, including a trip to the bottom of the huge Greystone Quarry. They enjoy industry tours, lunch with area judges and even a visit to the local jail. Skip Satterwhite, an agent with Wester Insurance, said, “As a lifelong resident of Henderson and Vance County, I was surprised to find out how much I didn’t know about our community.... My exposure to Leadership Vance was a great personal experience and will help me to continue to develop professionally.” “Being in the community only a few years, I learned a great deal about Henderson and Vance County, as well as met a number of wonderful people,” added Gina DeMent, community development specialist for Five County Mental Health Authority. LV participants establish new relationships in the business community and they discover their potential to make a difference right here at home, Hedrick said. “The intensive training and exposure to all aspects of the community provide our participants with the historical background and the skills necessary for volunteer civic and community positions as well as their career goals,” she said. Each year, the participants have a Community Services Day where they work on a project to fulfill a requirement to spend a day helping to improve their home community. The 2010 work session took place at Rebuilding Hope Ministries, a ministry aimed at repairing homes to make them liveable for those who are less fortunate. Other projects have included landscaping projects at the Vance County Senior Center, cleaning up King Daughters Park and freshening up the Vance County Department of Social Services waiting room with bright colored paint and a children’s play area. Hedrick said the program seeks participants who may already be emerging as active and engaged citizens and aims to help kick-start them to a new level of activity and participation in their jobs and community. “In some ways they are already leaders to begin with,” she said.

opportunities. A unique feature of this program is the partnership the college formed with the Masonic Home for Children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had a kitchen they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t using. We had a program that needed a kitchen,â&#x20AC;? Parker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Graduates of that program can work in any restaurant up to ďŹ ve stars or start their own business.â&#x20AC;? In 2008, VGCC entered the arena of interscholastic sports when it joined the National Junior College Athletic Association. The menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team reached the Region X semi-ďŹ nals in each of its ďŹ rst two seasons. The golf team placed fourth at the Region X championship in 2010. On the female side of the student population, VGCC added womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball in 2009. VGCC has joined with the four local public school districts to implement an Early College program in each county. The program gives students an opportunity to obtain both a high school diploma and an associateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree after completing ďŹ ve years of a combination of high school and college courses. A major goal of the program is to introduce students from families with no history of higher education to the prospect of a college education. In another innovative collaboration, VGCC formed a consortium with Wake County Technical Institute and Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise at UNCChapel Hill to oďŹ&#x20AC;er an associate degree in Global Logistics Technology. The program prepares students for careers in distribution, warehousing, transportation and the other components of the supply chain. In spite of its prominent proďŹ le statewide and nationally, VGCC still prides itself on the work done locally to serve the needs of Vance, Granville, Warren and Franklin counties.

Chamber Promotes Volunteerism with Citizen Award

hile short in stature, Dorothy Hunt towered above the rest of the audience at the Henderson-Vance Chamber of Commerce’s annual membership banquet in February. Chosen as the 2010 Citizen of the Year, Hunt, at slightly less than five feet tall, accepted her award with praise for the community’s support of her ministry, Lifeline Outreach, a shelter for women and children who are in need. “I’m probably too choked up to say anything,” Hunt told the capacity crowd at the Vance-Granville Community College Civic Center as she held back tears. “The greatest thing I ever see is the change that is made in these women’s lives.” In 1984, Hunt founded her ministry with just $300, a handful of people who wanted to help her, a vision and a healthy dose of faith in God. “It started as one woman’s dream and became a community project,” Hunt said regarding her shelter. “The plan is just to start where you are and make a difference.” For more than 40 years, the Chamber has been recognizing individuals like Mrs. Hunt who make a difference in Henderson and Vance County. From 1970 to 1978, separate awards were given for Man of the Year and Woman of the Year. The award was consolidated in 1979 to recognize the Citizen of the Year. The public is given the opportunity to nominate honorees. The recipient of the award must be a county resident who is nominated for acts performed outside his or her normal business or profession for the benefit of the county and its citizens. No chamber membership is required for this award. Hunt’s award was presented by James

D. Edwards, the 2009 recipient of the award, who was recognized for his volunteer work with a number of area organizations. Previous award recipients include, in 2008, Henderson attorney Bennett H. Perry Jr., chosen in large part for more than three decades of service as a trustee of H. Leslie Perry Memorial Library. His leadership and counsel led to the transfer of the library from a private, nonprofit organization to the city and county. Perry helped orchestrate the move of the library from cramped spaces on Young Street in 1986 to a former food store on Rose Avenue and to making the library a part of the Embassy Square Citizen — CONTINUED ON PAGE 22 21

project on Breckenridge Street when the facility moved into modern, spacious quarters in 2006. Perry, who died earlier this year, was also cited for three decades of membership on the Salvation Army board and service he has provided to The Church of the Holy Innocents. Donald Ray Matthews, a real estate agent and trucking company operator, won the 2007 award for his untiring work with two community groups. He has served as co-chair of the United Way of Vance Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital campaign and as a member of the United Way Board of Directors. Matthews also has served in a variety of positions with the Vance County Relay For Life to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Ray Meeks, the 2006 Citizen of the Year, accepted the award on behalf of his Chamber colleagues. Everyone attending the banquet, he said, was familiar with the challenges faced by Vance County and he referred to those in the audience as the answer to those challenges. Meeks, chair of the Board of Trustees of the Maria Parham Healthcare Association during the award year, was cited for his support of county schools and was recognized as an active volunteer for Habitat for Humanity. Ruth Burt, who spent her career educating children and who continues to do so in retirement, was the Citizen of the Year for 2005. A public school teacher for 32 years, Miss Burt continued to serve the schools as a tutor at Pinkston Street Elementary and other schools. She served as director of the Henderson Institute Museum, which contains historical artifacts from schools for Vance Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s black children prior to integration. Wayne Gray, who said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always looked at working in the community as a hobby,â&#x20AC;? was the 2004 Citizen of the Year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community is only as good as you make it,â&#x20AC;? Gray said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can do it halfway or put our shoulders to the wheel and make things happen.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, the community is a better place for its volunteers and the Chamber plays a valuable role in recognizing volunteerism with its annual award.
