A NEW BRAND FOR A BOLD AGENDA

Once our merger was announced, GBA leadership and Board of Directors embarked upon the process of creating a distinct and memorable brand for the organization. We commissioned the Belmont-based Lyerly Agency to spearhead the branding effort due to their expertise and commitment to stakeholder engagement in the brand creation process.

As a member organization representing and supporting business, it was important to have an inclusive process with a variety of voices helping to create our brand. Patrick Mumford,

President & CEO of the GBA

This collaborative approach allowed us to deliver a bold, modern brand in alignment with our strategic priorities and the needs of the business community,” he added. The Lyerly Agency guided the GBA throughout the branding process, including the engagement of 25+ Gaston area stakeholders representing diverse business sectors, sizes, and geographies. Initial stakeholder meetings were spent soliciting feedback about what a member-based business association should provide, the value it could 8 | CHOOSE GASTON 2021

bring to businesses, and the tenants of how it should operate. Throughout the process, stakeholders provided critical insight and direction which informed the creative elements and brand attributes that became the final GBA branding materials. The branding includes a contemporary typeface and interconnected initials reflecting the close relationship between the GBA, its members, and the community. The color palette includes blue and green, colors used by the legacy organizations, and the addition of orange and purple represents the GBA’s inclusive culture. The Connect. Commit. Collaborate. tagline is intentionally action-oriented, epitomizes how the GBA operates, and demonstrates what we offer to businesses in Gaston County. The brand is fully integrated into the GBA’s organization inclusive of signage, collateral, social channels, and new website (www.gastonbusiness.com). The website will continually evolve with the needs of GBA membership. “The GBA’s website is not for the organization - it is for our members, and the community,” said Patrick Mumford. “We have asked for and will continue to seek feedback and suggestions from our membership and community partners how to best meet their needs through the site.” he added.

BELMONT Incorporated: 1895 Est. Population: 12,123

History: The City of Belmont was incorporated in 1895, although the area developed prior as a stop on what is now the Norfolk Southern railroad line. The stop was strategically located to allow trains to receive coal and water prior to entering Charlotte. This stop led to commerce and the birth of the textile industry in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Trains and textiles dominated Belmont’s economy and identity for a century During the mid-to-late 1990s, as the textile industry left, city leaders made the strategic decision to invest in Belmont’s downtown streetscape and infrastructure. They hoped to attract small businesses to boost the local economy and make it a desirable place for people to live and work.

10 | CHOOSE GASTON 2021

Vibe: Today Belmont boasts a vibrant downtown, with an active street life that begins with morning meetings in coffee shops and ends with friends gathering for local craft cocktails at The Jailhouse, a cigar bar located in an old city jail. Over a dozen locally owned restaurants cater to downtown office workers, local residents, and visitors from around the region. Belmont’s park system has seen massive investment from the city council in recent years, resulting in a myriad of youth and adult sports as well as community festivals from April until December. Belmont is evolving and is remaining true to its small-town charm and its entrepreneurial spirit. Just as local businesspeople created a textile economy by selling small shares of stock to residents over a century ago, a new generation are starting businesses at TechWorks, expanding industry in The Oaks Commerce Park, and creating jobs in small businesses downtown.

CHERRYVILLE Incorporated: 1881 Est. Population: 6,007

History: Cherryville began as a growing village at the crossroads of the Morganton-to-Charleston road back in the 1700s. After the Civil War, the town served as a water and coal stop for the Carolina Central Railroad. Along the railroad, a local resident planted cherry trees, and the train engineers soon began calling the settlement “Cherryville”. The town was incorporated under this name in 1881.

HIGH SHOALS Incorporated: 1973 Est. Population: 720

History: High Shoals is the county’s youngest municipality and is named for the shoals (submerged sandbars) in the South Fork River where the resulting rapids provided water power for industry. While not incorporated until 1973, the village community dates back to the 1780's when the discovery of iron ore brought settlers to the area. John Fulenwider founded High Shoals Ironworks which produced cannon balls for the Army during the War of 1812. The business flourished until 1875; but the Civil War disrupted the iron foundry industry, and textile manufacturing moved in. The High Shoals Mills took over the site of the ironworks and began operation in 1901. The company constructed a school around 1924, and water works in 1941, which were donated to the city. From the 1890's, the High Shoals Mills COMMUNITIES

owned the entire town until eventually the mill houses were sold to private buyers. Living in High Shoals offers residents a rural feel along the banks of the picturesque South Fork of the Catawba River. The High Shoals Dam and the High Shoals Lake reservoir, off Old US 321, is a popular scenic spot along the South Fork River.

GASTON INFRASTRUCTURE & MOBILITY By Amanda Memrick

eady or not, Gaston County is going to grow. Gaston County has a population of 224,529, according to the N.C. Office of State Budget and Management’s certified 2019 population estimate. From 2010 to 2019, the county grew by 8.1 percent, according to state figures. Gaston County’s neighboring location to Charlotte, lower land prices, and lower tax rate make it an attractive place to live. The number of people calling Gaston County home is expected to increase over the next 30 years by about 7

GROWTH

percent, reaching an anticipated population of 275,000 residents by 2050, according state estimates. Growth can be good for boosting the tax base and providing more amenities. But it also comes with challenges. More people here also means more cars on the road, feet on the sidewalk and bicycles on the move. It means more demand for public transportation like buses and trains. Just look at some of the figures for Gaston County workers from the 2019 census: • Average travel time to work is 26.5 minutes • 5 4.8 percent of workers travel within Gaston County to work • 8 5.3 percent of workers drove a car, van or truck alone • 9 .1 percent of workers carpooled in a car, van or truck More vehicles are expected to be on the road in the future, upping the chances of getting stuck in traffic on I-85 or a standstill on U.S. 74. “To most effectively meet future mobility needs, leaders across the county must continue to collaboratively plan for

anticipated growth,” said Patrick Mumford, President and CEO of the Gaston Business Association. “It's not just economic expansion today. It's today and tomorrow, how do we get out in front knowing that expansion is going to occur through natural market forces in Gaston County?” Mobility means having access to different methods of transportation, whether that is by car, bicycle, bus, plane or walking. CONNECT Beyond, a regional group exploring how to create an interconnected transit network for the 12 counties in the Charlotte metro region -- including Gaston -- defines mobility this way: “Having access to various quality modes of transportation, which allow people to efficiently get to key destinations, such as home, work and entertainment venues. Quality transportation options are convenient, affordable and safe. Mobility is the ability to move about freely and easily.” What if your job doesn’t require you to leave home? About 3 percent of Gaston County workers call home their office, according to 2019 federal figures. That doesn’t mean improving transportation infrastructure isn’t important. Those that work from home are likely to still use the roads in Gaston County for getting to the grocery store, visiting friends and family or picking up children from school. Even those who opt to bicycle and walk wherever they go still need well-planned infrastructure to provide bicycle lanes and sidewalks. The latest area travel survey, the 2012 Metrolina Regional Household Travel Survey, discovered some interesting travel facts: • O  ne-eighth of all trips in the 11-county metro area involve trips between a resident’s home and work. • O  ne-fourth of all trips were for things other than work, shopping, school or medical purposes Focusing all funding on improving worker commutes won’t deliver the greatest benefits, concluded the GastonCleveland-Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization, the local organization made up of local governments, state and federal transportation officials and other transportation services. Improving mobility benefits residents from Bessemer City to Belmont, High Shoals to Mount Holly and any town or city in between. Not surprisingly, the mobility needs in the region surpass the money available to make it happen. Identifying a dedicated revenue stream to support these projectsis imperative. We understand the scope of mobility infrastructure requirements in Gaston County is expansive. The critical question we must answer is how do we comprehensively and equitably address those needs? “To most effectively meet future mobility needs, leaders across the county must continue to collaboratively plan for anticipated growth.”

GREENWAYS ARE INTEGRAL TO GASTON’S MOBILITY Rob Glover

Gaston Outside

D

Partial story excerpted from Gaston Outside

ue to the intentionality of Gaston’s city planners to make greenways a prominent feature in the overall mobility plans, there could be a day when hundreds of miles of greenways weave their way through Gaston County. According to Jane Love, Senior Transportation Planner for the GCLMPO (Gaston, Cleveland, Lincoln, Metropolitan Planning Organization) Gaston’s 13 cities mention around 300 miles of total potential multi-use paths in their municipal plans. And with new pedestrian and bike plans in the works for towns like Gastonia, Dallas, and Bessemer City, that number could increase. Why the growing momentum for greenways in Gaston County? Because greenways aren’t just a place for a pleasant afternoon stroll. They’ve also emerged as a versatile tool to help city planners maximize and manage the economic opportunities ahead. Greenways encourage growth Greenways will be an effective draw for both developers and companies considering expansion in Gaston. Companies looking to move or expand see greenways as a sign that cities are investing in their residents’ future and as an important factor in the area’s overall quality of life. Greg Beal, Mount Holly’s Director of Planning and Development, notes that greenways have become an important amenity when courting a business. “Competition for advanced manufacturing jobs is fierce,” he says. “Companies always ask what we’re doing to increase quality of life and greenways play a big part.” Economic growth and additional jobs make a strong case for greenways. But it only matters if everyone can share in the benefit. Greenways provide access Prosperity can’t just be for some; everyone should have the opportunity to benefit. Greenways break through transportation obstacles allowing more people to safely access work, education, and recreation. It’s 10am on Sunday morning, and cars nearly fill a gravel lot at the Mountain Island Lake Trail in Mount Holly. Most came to bike, hike, and run the wide, gravel greenway and the tributaries of narrow single-track trails that crisscross it. The greenway is already an impressive amenity for Mount GROWTH

Holly, drawing people from neighboring communities and providing residents a place to gather and play. But it’s just one piece of the Catawba Outdoor Corridor plan that includes 10 to 12 miles of greenway. About 4.5 miles of the corridor are already complete, including a beautiful segment from Tuckaseegee park to the Municipal Complex. Soon, another half-mile connector will open that extends up to River Park. Once complete, the greenway will stretch from the dam along the Catawba River all the way to Interstate 85 and include connections into downtown Mount Holly. That means you’ll be able hop on the greenway from any number of neighborhoods, head up to Mountain Island lake, to the YMCA, to Tailrace Marina, to a half dozen parks, and then to Catawba Coffee, Jack Beagles, or Summit for a beverage and a snack. All while enjoying serene, Catawba River views. For some, that describes a fun day out. For many—like those without a car —it means safe access to shopping, services, and places of work. That’s important when you consider that according to a Gallup poll, 9% of American households don’t own a car and the percentage of adults with a driver’s license has decreased across all age groups in the last couple of decades. How people commute also has a significant effect on their health. Residents who live in communities with a high Walk Score—an algorithm that estimates how easy it is to get around on foot—weigh six to 10 pounds less than those who live in disconnected neighborhoods. Sidewalks help some, but they’re often hemmed in by cul-de-sac communities. Greenways connect those siloed neighborhoods. Even better, they do it without adding through-traffic to them. Residents can enjoy living on a quiet street and still have pedestrian access to the greater community. Generating more opportunities for more people within each Gaston city is important. When you can connect all of those cities together, you have something really special.

Greenways bring people together, so they feel part of a community. They provide community identity and pride. Jane Love,

Senior Transportation Planner

Building greenways is a team sport There are currently about two dozen miles of greenway in Gaston County and roughly another dozen miles in various stages of planning and construction. Building more isn’t as easy as clearing a path and laying down gravel or asphalt. There are land acquisition considerations, environmental studies, and cost studies, all before a shovel hits the dirt. But the biggest hurdle, says both Beal and Love, is funding. Luckily there are many talented teams working to get more projects funded and more shovels into the dirt. In Mount Holly, for example, Beal credits his team with doing work that’s saved $10’s of thousands of dollars on recent greenway projects. They’ve also been proactive at getting project’s ready, so when funding becomes available, they can act quickly. There are economic development and planning groups like Mount Holly’s in every Gaston municipality. They deserve credit and thanks for continuing the greenway momentum. So does the Carolina Thread Trail who helps 15 Carolina counties write plans, find funding, and foster collaboration for greenway projects. Most of the greenways in Gaston County are part of the Carolina Thread Trail System. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity, get out and explore all Gaston’s greenways have to offer.

Greenways connect Gaston’s idyllic towns There’s no other county in the state with such a diverse collection of authentic, historic towns and communities. A network of greenways between them, and across the Catawba, unifies our county, tells a bigger tourism story, and connects us with new developments in Charlotte. It won’t be long before you can have a coffee at Floyd and Blackie’s in Cramerton, hop on the Goat Island Greenway, bike to lunch at Terra Mia in McAdenville, and ride back in time for a paddle on the South Fork River. There are few communities in the region that offer this variety of outdoor experiences directly adjacent to town centers. Connecting them all with greenways creates a strong draw for potential businesses, residents and visitors.

GASTON COLLEGE ADDS ATHLETICS TO ITS ROSTER

T

he Gaston College Board of Trustees voted unanimously in November to add athletics to its rich history of academic excellence and leadership. Gaston College has been without athletics for nearly 50 years and when Dr. John Hauser became President last June, he began the process to end that drought. A national search was officially organized to hire key leaders to lead the program and the first tier of the lineup is now complete with the hiring of: • Gene Banks, Athletic Director • D  avid “Dickey” Nutt, Associate Athletic Director/Head Basketball Coach • Shohn Doty, Head Baseball Coach • John  Horshok, Director Athletic Program Development and Sports Marketing “This is an amazing group who will bring instant credibility and excitement to our college and campus,” Dr. Hauser said, “Our alumni, students, faculty, staff and community deserve a full college experience and athletics will provide both local enthusiasm and national exposure for Gaston College.” Banks will manage the coaching staff as Athletic Director (AD) and he brings his legendary Duke University credentials to Gaston College along with the management skills he developed playing and coaching in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and internationally. In addition to his athletic director duties, he will be involved with the College’s new Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as well as work with WSGE 91.7 FM–the College’s award-winning radio station. “I am joining Gaston College to strive to achieve athletics excellence,” Banks said, “This is a truly remarkable opportunity to design a program from scratch and combine top-notch athletics with a unique community partnership approach.” Dickey Nutt is a coach in NCAA Division I basketball with 273 wins as well as an award for being “Coach of the Year” at Arkansas State in the Sunbelt Conference. He is currently a special assistant to the head coach at Cleveland State University, where he plans to finish the season, and is a former head coach at Southeast Missouri State, and former assistant head coach at Oklahoma State, Stetson, and Florida State.

RECOVERY FRONT AND CENTER DURING 2021 ECONOMIC FORECAST Bill Poteat

The Gaston Gazette Partial story excerpted from the Gaston Gazette

The American economy is in recovery from the worst of the COVID-19-inspired recession, but that recovery is fragile and its continuance is predicated on three factors. Gus Faucher, senior vice president of PNC Financial Services, spoke to the annual Economic Forecast meeting of the Gaston Business Association (GBA).

More than 22 million jobs were lost in this downturn, Faucher said, compared to only 8 million in the Great Recession of 2008-09. The downturn was prevented being even worse by the injection of roughly $3 trillion in stimulus funds by the federal government. While that spending has caused the federal deficit to soar, Faucher said, “We can worry about the deficit later. It is much more important that we have a stronger economic recovery now. If we focus on debt now, it will lead to a weaker recovery in the future.” While expressing confidence that the recovery will most likely continue, Faucher said COVID-19 and its aftermath may lead to some fundamental altering of the economy in the future.

If the economy is to continue to recover, Faucher told GBA members, the following steps are necessary: 1. E ffective response to COVID-19, including the distribution of a widely-accessible vaccine. “If we don’t get this right,” Faucher said of the pandemic, “not much else matters.” 2. A  dditional stimulus funding from the federal government. “We need to go big or go home,” Faucher said. “We need additional aid to businesses, aid to households, and aid to state and local governments.” 3. Continuing assistance to small and medium-sized businesses on all levels. “We have to help those businesses survive, otherwise there will be too many holes to plug.” The American economy experienced its steepest decline since the Great Depression in the spring of 2020 as the pandemic forced many businesses to shut down. “We have made progress,” Faucher said, “but we still have a long, long way to go to get back to normal.” HEALTH

“What is the future of retail going to look like?” he asked. “Even before COVID, we were seeing a strong trend away from traditional retail. What about the market for office space? Will people return to working in offices?” Faucher concluded by saying, “It is simply hard to know the shape of the recovery. How many businesses will collapse? How long will COVID-19 be with us? How quickly will the jobless rate fall? How big will the future stimulus be?” One thing is for certain, he added. “It is going to take time to make up for all this lost ground.” Connect. Commit.

BEVERLY KNITS PIVOTS TO AID THOSE IN NEED By Amanda Memrick

B

eing a family-based business helped textile manufacturer Beverly Knits shift gears to keep the doors open and employees at work when the pandemic pounced. Robert and JoAnn Sytz founded the textile manufacturing company in 1980. CEO Ron Sytz purchased the company from his parents in 2004 and operates the business with his wife Janet as chief financial officer. Their children work there, along with about 300 employees. Because they didn’t have to work through multiple levels of hierarchy to make a decision, the business was able to pivot quickly to keep running. First they asked, “Can we do it?” Then, they turned to employees and asked them to participate.

The pandemic was challenging, but made associates appreciate each other, he said. “Hard work makes you stronger,” Sytz said. We asked Ron Sytz to talk about how the company was able to keep open when COVID-19 caused so many businesses to close. Here’s what he had to say: What were your thoughts when the pandemic first started? Did you foresee how it might impact business? We were very challenged like many when the pandemic started. With all the different manufacturing facilities shutting down -- autos, apparel, mattresses, etc. -- most of our customers called and put all of our orders on hold. We did not have any idea how long this stop of production was going to last.

We knew our associates were exceptional, however it is amazing to see just how resilient they were when the challenge to do something different was handed to them.

“All we had to do is have a team meeting,” Ron Sytz said. “We were able to keep open every day.”

Ron Sytz,

The Gastonia-based company manufactures fabric for a host of different markets including activewear, the automotive industry, mattresses and bedding, industrial, medical and more. It is one of the largest circular knitters in the country, operating 250 circular knitting machines that produce 30 million square yards of fabric each year.

How did you adjust the business as the pandemic continued?

When those customers stopped ordering fabric, the company shifted employees’ work to keep them on the payroll. That allowed the company to move into making face masks for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

We immediately reviewed how we could keep all of our associates working. Where we could keep machines running and build inventory for when the business returned, we did. Then we started using everyone to perform housekeeping, additional training, (which means) we kept everyone working.

HEALTH


What were the biggest challenges? The biggest challenge was the same for everyone, the unknown of how long this stop in business was going to happen. We needed to find something to do. Were there any positives that came from this? This focus to find something to do led to the opportunity to quickly make reusable face masks for the Department of Health and Human Services. Through working with our industry partners, we were invited to a call with Dr. Peter Navarro who challenged the industry to quickly start producing face masks. Because we have an unbelievable team at Beverly Knits, we knew that we could quickly adjust to whatever was needed. How did you change to manufacturing masks? We were asked how many masks we could make in 16 weeks and we offered 20 million. We had employees that needed work. Some would make fabric, and some would help cut and sew. We also would need other industry partners to assist. Our network of industry friends is large and within a few weeks we had over 20 different companies across the U.S. cutting and sewing face masks for us. They needed work for their associates, and we brought them a solution. Beverly Knits provided all the logistics to provide fabric, trim, labels, bags, boxes -- everything needed. And these companies provided the cutting, sewing and assembly. Through our Creative Fabrics division, we started cutting and sewing and providing the initial production while all 22 other facilities got their quality approved and ramped up. Did you meet your mask making goals?

Do you foresee mask making continuing or are you planning to go back to producing your typical products? We have already returned to making our typical products. The auto factories have opened back up and are ordering fabrics again. The bedding market has seen an increase in business as more people are spending money on items for their homes, including furniture. Apparel took a huge hit due to store closings but are starting to come back. And then there is the reshoring phenomena. Many companies that had imported textiles have determined that it is better to have more supplied from the USA to de-risk their supply chains. So, we are optimistic that business will continue to increase in the year ahead. What are the biggest business lessons you've taken away from this experience? We knew our associates were exceptional, however it is amazing to see just how resilient they were when the challenge to do something different was handed to them. They pivoted and focused on quality and delivery. Beverly Knits has been a diversified textile company working in multiple markets. This focus of being able to provide many different textile solutions had trained our team to accomplish this goal. What advice would you give to business owners trying to manage this pandemic? Creativity in managing your business is required to survive. Always look for opportunities to do something different, to try something new. The harder the product to make, the stronger it can make your company.Your team will rise to the challenge if they are given the opportunity.

Yes, we met our goal and actually completed a week early. This provided four months of work as Beverly Knits and our partners figured out what was next during the pandemic.

CATALYST MERCANTILE PERSEVERES DURING PANDEMIC By Amanda Memrick

K

endle Starcher left her full-time job March 11, 2020, to start her own business. The next day, the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. That’s not the way any business owner wants to begin. But Kendle Starcher and business partner Lauren Murray refused to let bad circumstances kill their dream. Catalyst Mercantile’s storefront in downtown Mount Holly couldn’t open in person, so the business turned to online sales and offered local same-day deliveries. Think of Catalyst Mercantile as a kind of local Etsy shop. Everything comes from local artisans or small business owners. Almost 20 local vendors from the area offer everything from cuffed bracelets to soy candles. Vendors rent space and Catalyst earns a small commission from sales. Catalyst’s website showcases and sells merchandise online, offering local makers the chance to find customers outside of Gaston County. The duo took over the lease of the former downtown coffee shop at the end of February. It took about three weeks to get the store painted and ready to go. “My parents and I just showed up and started painting,” said Starcher. They had planned to open April 1, 2020, but soon realized that the two-week statewide shutdown might last longer than two weeks. “What can we do safely and smartly? We’re new in town. We don’t want to come in and ruffle any feathers,” Starcher said. “How can we get our name out?” So the pair decided to move their launch online. That meant taking photos and creating online listings for every item in the store. Catalyst Mercantile operated online only until it was able to open its doors to customers May 9. Technology became essential, Starcher said. “I think the one thing 2020 has taught us, as a business owner or as a small business owner, you have to have an online presence,” Starcher said. “I don’t think shoppers will ever go back to it (only shopping in stores).” Business owners need to be willing to try posting on social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook to get the word out about the business and the products they sell. “As a newly starting out small business, we were kind of lucky that everything we were doing, we were doing from the beginning,” Starcher said. To survive, they relied on word of mouth. Catalyst’s very HEALTH

first orders on April 1 were from best friends and their moms. Then they started utilizing Facebook groups. Murray is a mom, so she joined the local mom groups. They joined business communities online and worked to promote their business. No storefront to manage freed up their days, allowing them to get creative with customer service. “Suddenly I could do deliveries,” Starcher said. If someone lived less than 15 miles away from the store, Starcher was able to waive shipping costs and offer porch dropoffs. Customers who placed an order in the morning could potentially have their items delivered to their doorstep after lunch. “So it was just kind of a little blessing that fell in there,” Starcher said. Starting a business in a pandemic was hard, but Starcher said local entrepreneurs should still take the plunge. “I think my biggest piece of advice would be to just go for it. It’s scary and it’s tough and it’s a lot of work,” Starcher said. “The worst thing you can do is not try.” Her other piece of advice? “You have to get really comfortable being uncomfortable,” Starcher said. “You have to join those Facebook groups. Put your name out there. You just have to start somewhere.” If an entrepreneur has a business idea that can be based online, now might be the right time. “It’s 2021, and if you can’t do it virtually, you can’t do it at all. You have to be smart about it, but I do think that if you’ve got an idea and you want to start, there’s no better time than right now.” Connect. Commit. Collaborate. | 43


BUSINESS DURING THE PANDEMIC By Amanda Memrick

T

he pandemic packed a punch to businesses last spring, but some local companies were able to take the hit and find ways to avoid being knocked out.

There’s no way to sugarcoat it and say that the pandemic didn’t hurt businesses, many of whom were never able to recover, said Steve D’Avria, Gaston Business Association Chief Operating Officer. “First there were calls every day,” D’Avria said of when many businesses came to a screeching halt last March. The Gaston Business Association fielded questions about whether a business was deemed essential, if they qualified for financial help and when they might be able to open up. The organization surveyed local businesses to find out what they needed and put together a task force between the local area chambers of commerce. It brought in experts like attorneys, insurance agents and marketing professionals to help. In May, the focus turned to bringing back business safely, starting with retail stores and manufacturing companies. The health department helped businesses know what kind of signage they needed to post to comply with state guidelines about reduced occupancy, face masks and air

circulation. One of the biggest lessons learned was the impact technology can have. Restaurants were able to survive by having their menus online and offering takeout or curbside pickup. Employees started working remotely and making face-to-face meetings over video conferencing platforms like Zoom. “I don't know how most retail and restaurants could go without it,” D’Avria said. “I don't know how the folks that didn't have technology could do this.” How can local businesses be ready for unforeseen circumstances like these again? “I think it's a combination of looking toward those shortterm goals and eating that elephant one bite at a time,” D’Avria said. It can be tough for business owners who have built a company of their own to ask for help, but they shouldn’t feel awkward about learning how to plan for rainy days or natural disasters. “And really, give yourself some grace,” D’Avria said. “There's nothing wrong with saying we can't do this alone.” Businesses need to think outside of the box and realize it is OK to make some mistakes. “I think you just really want to keep an eye on what resources are available,” D’Avria said. “Keep learning, keep reading, keep asking questions. Share it with others.”

GASTON COUNTY SCHOOLS LEAD STATE IN JOB READINESS Gavin Stewart

The Gaston Gazette Partial story excerpted from the Gaston Gazette

G

aston County Schools continues to lead the state in Career and Technical Education, but the school district recently reached another milestone.

Based on CTE data from the 2019-20 school year, Gaston County Schools not only achieved the highest number of credentials earned by students in North Carolina, but also achieved the highest percentage of students who earned more than one credential in a particular trade. It’s the first time a school district earned both top rankings in the same school year, according to the state Board of Education. In a nutshell, a credential represents a workforce skill that’s been mastered. “Credentials are certifications in various areas to make the students job ready when they graduate,” said Sam Bishop, CTE instructional management coordinator for Hunter Huss High School. “For example, in the EMT class it’s like going to Gaston College and taking an EMT class to get a job at GEMS.” The percentage of students who earned more than one credential can be compared to return on investment in the business realm, according to Kimberly MacDonald, a CTE representative from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. Gaston County Schools’ students earned 14,986 credentials last school year – the highest amount in the state among all school districts and charter schools – while Wake County Public School System, the largest school district in the state, was second with 12,895 credentials earned. “They’re really setting the bar high and it’s just attributed to the work that goes on with their administration, their CTE teachers and their students,” MacDonald said during a recent presentation to the state Board of Education. That work starts at the school level. Over the last four years, the school district has expanded its CTE offerings across its high schools to assure more students find a suitable career path. Hunter Huss’ Career Academy, which earned the second most credentials of any school in the state at nearly 3,000, offers 16 pathways, which include culinary, healthcare, public safety, game art design, forensics, accounting and more.

Higher enrollment in CTE courses means more students find a career following graduation. Sarah Chase, a registered nurse who teaches at Hunter Huss, said health science courses have become just as popular. “Had COVID-19 not happened this year, we could’ve potentially been teaching two different nursing fundamentals classes. We can only accept 10, but we have 20 or 30 interested in it,” Chase said. Getting results When Aliya Wilson isn’t taking business classes at Gaston College, she runs a seasonal baking business out of her home. Wilson, 20, first got acquainted in the kitchen at age 6. While she knows her away around the oven, running a business was a new concept that Hunter Huss brought her into. Hunter Huss’ Career Academy prepared Wilson to run her small baking business, while also getting her a head start at Gaston College. “I took mostly business classes, I took the food classes and really anything I could get my hands on,” Wilson said. “With the available options at Huss, I was able to make my path and go through the extra education I needed to get to where I am.”

Career Academy

Hunter Huss also offers ServSafe certifications, which are especially valuable in the restaurant industry. “Most restaurants will hire you on the spot because of that because they need someone in the kitchen with that certificate,” Wilson said.

Recently, public safety enrollment has remained maxed out at about 25 students per class. Bishop recalls those classes having 10 or less students in them just a few years ago.

Wilson makes her own graphics, menus and fliers, and she’s now a spreadsheet whiz. After graduating from Gaston College, she hopes to open a food truck and earn a

bachelor's degree in business. If those ventures go well, she’ll open a brick-and-mortar bakery. While on a Hunter Huss field trip in 2019, Geneva Warren, 20, visited Webb Custom Kitchen and met General Manager Aaron Samole. Shortly after, Warren, 20, returned to the restaurant to apply for a job and Samole hired her. Warren, who studies culinary arts at Central Piedmont Community College on a scholarship, was taking classes within Hunter Huss’ game design path when she regularly walked by the foods classroom at Hunter Huss. A whiff of the delicious creations from that classroom convinced her to change course. “If I hadn’t gone to Huss, I probably wouldn’t have started in baking and pastry arts, and I would’ve gone into a career that would’ve been upsetting,” said Warren, who was accepted into Highland School of Technology but opted to attend Hunter Huss’ Career Academy. “I would have never started down this path,” she added. While learning about cake and pastry art in college, she works as a host and food runner at Webb Custom Kitchen. Working in those roles has helped her understand the operations of a restaurant beyond the kitchen. “It’s taught me a lot about time management and a lot how the front-of-house works. I’ve learned that many times, the kitchen doesn’t understand what’s happening at the front of the restaurant,” Warren said. Warren doesn’t plan to work in a kitchen until she takes work study through CPCC, which is similar to an internship. For her work study, she hopes to bake goods for The Fed – a new restaurant planned for the first-floor of the former Citizens National Bank property on Main Avenue in Gastonia. Warren isn’t exactly sure what will come after that. The thought of owning a bakery sounds great, but she would also focus on making elegant plated desserts and baking bread. “I’d like to find something that’s a combination of all of that,” she said. EDUCATION

Hawks Nest STEAM Academy is recognized across Gaston County for its focus on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. Now, Hawks Nest has gained attention at the state level for earning the North Carolina STEM School of Distinction title. The Department of Public Instruction and State Board of Education began recognizing schools in 2014 for outstanding efforts in STEM education. Hawks Nest is one of only 16 schools statewide to earn the STEM model school designation, and it is the only model school winner for 2020-2021. The award recognizes Hawks Nest for its concentrated focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics across the curriculum, according to Dr. Jill Payne, principal. Hawks Nest STEAM Academy opened in August 2016 as the only elementary magnet school in Gaston County with a focus on STEAM. Becoming a model school was on the radar from the beginning, according to Payne. “One of our main goals is to make sure our school is a place where students thrive. They’re growing academically because of our efforts to take a whole-school approach to the STEM curriculum and also integrating the arts,” Payne said. “There are so many good things going on at Hawks Nest, and I’m so proud of the work that is being done.” STEM Schools of Distinction are recognized by the Department of Public Instruction for exemplifying outstanding leadership and challenging students to think creatively. With a focus on teamwork, teachers and staff help students develop the ability to reason and embrace essential STEM attributes they need to be successful in today’s society. Of the schools that applied, Hawks Nest was selected as one of the top 36, which led to a follow-up visit to further explore the school’s qualifications. The follow-up was done virtually because of the coronavirus pandemic. While it usually takes 24 hours to find out the results, Hawks Nest received confirmation only three hours after its presentation that it had been selected as a N.C. STEM School of Distinction.

NEW GROWTH HOPES TO MAKE A BIG IMPACT ON TOURISM IN GASTON COUNTY AFTER THE PANDEMIC

A

s we all know 2020 was a tough year with the travel and tourism taking an especially hard hit due to COVID 19. The precautions enacted to combat the pandemic resulted in overall hotel demand drops of approximately 15% in Gaston County from the previous year. However, with outdoor recreation being largely available and considered safe, we saw weekend hotel demand remain more resilient, down just 8% from the 2019 pace.

2 NEW HOTELS This past year brought the opening of two new hotels. Both can be found at exit 27 on I-85. To the north on Hwy 273 heading into Mount Holly is Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott. Home2 Suites can be found south of the Interstate in Belmont. Both hotels offer free breakfast, WiFi, parking, fitness center, pool, business center and meeting rooms. Petfriendly rooms are also available at Home2 Suites.

GASTONIA HONEY HUNTERS PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL FUSE District in Gastonia will connect the downtown area to Loray Mills. Lots of future development is planned for this area but opening this spring is a multi-purpose stadium which will be the home to the Gastonia Honey Hunters a professional baseball team in the Atlantic League. The Honey Hunters will host 60 home games in the new ballpark this year and season tickets will be available soon. The new ballpark is designed to accommodate a variety of other events, including concerts, soccer, lacrosse, and football with an artificial turf surface. ACTIVITIES

NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO GET OUTSIDE Gaston County is committed to preserving natural spaces, not only to sustain the environment but to offer unparalleled access for everyone to enjoy. Here are several new opportunities to get outside and hike, bike or paddle. Rocky Branch Park, a popular recreational park in Belmont, is currently undergoing upgrades to make it a must see outdoor attraction for visitors. When completed this park will offer an extensive trail system for hikers and mountain bikers of all skill levels providing easy, moderate and challenging trails. Best of all this park enhancement will connect Cramerton and Belmont making it convenient for adventurists to make a day of it and enjoy the park followed by some much deserved chill time in town at local eating establishments. Opening in 2020 is a 1.2-mile paved path along the Catawba River. The Catawba Riverfront Greenway connects downtown Mount Holly with Tuckaseege Park with plans to eventually tie in to other walking trails in the area. Also in Mount Holly, Dutchman's Creek Greenway is a paved greenway, spanning .6 miles from CaroMont Regional Medical Center to River Street Park. This trail is slated to open in early 2021. Another trail in Gaston County is Avon Catawba Extension located in Gastonia. A 0.5-mile extension of this trail will link Lineburger Park to East 2nd connecting neighborhoods with outdoors areas. This trail is currently under construction with plans of opening in 2021. Connect. Commit. Collaborate. | 53


11 MILLS BLUEWAY This blueway trail was created by the Gaston County Department of Travel and Tourism and includes multiple stops along both the Catawba and South Fork of the Catawba River with things to do and see. Along the way paddlers will find places to launch their boats, equipment rental as well as eateries and breweries to stop and relax. A map of the trail can be found on their website at GoGastonNC.org. REVISIONS TO THE TRAILS AT CROWDERS MOUNTAIN STATE PARK The pandemic spurred record attendance at Crowders Mountain State Park as travelers traded indoor spaces for the great outdoors. Due to the spike in traffic, Pinnacle Trail was re-routed to bypass worn sections of the trail and carve a new sustainable path. KAYAK THE SOUTH FORK OF THE CATAWBA RIVER Coming in 2021, kayaking opportunities along the South Fork of the Catawba River will get easier with the introduction of a kayak rental and shuttle service by Catawba RiverKeeper, headquartered at McAdenville River Park. Visitors can float down the river from McAdenville to to Goat Island Park in Cramerton and be shuttled back to their car. A NEW DOCK FOR PADDLERS IN MCADENVILLE With grant money from The Community Foundation of Gaston County the Catawba Lands Conservancy will construct a new kayak/canoe landing dock at the R.Y. McAden take-out in McAdenville. This is one of the most popular of nine “put-ins” for paddlers along the river. Launching from this location will take paddlers through some of the most ecologically diverse lands in the region which are protected by the Conservancy. RIDGELINE CRAFT BEVERAGE TRAIL The Ridgeline Craft Beverage Trail features breweries, distilleries and wineries located in the area that deliver

unique experiences and hand crafted beverages. Recently the Gaston County Department of Travel and Tourism with the help of Bandwango, created a passport program to turn the trail into a mobile game experience. Visitors who sign up for the passport, check-in using the APP at a specified number of stops along the trail will win a prize that is shipped to their home. Six of the locations are located in Gastonia and three are located outside two in Stanley County and one, the newest addition to the trail, is in Lincolnton.

Gastonia's embodiment of these attributes, particularly as they relate to the city's unwavering commitment to continuous improvement or, as we like to say, the hunt for honey." The team announced last year that five names were under consideration for the franchise, which will play its games in the new FUSE District stadium: Gastonia Fire Ants, Gastonia Hogzillas, Gastonia Hotshots, Gastonia Uppercuts, and Honey Hunters. Brandon Bellamy, team owner, added that, like Gastonia, the Honey Hunters will always be striving for something better but will never forget the city's rich baseball heritage.

HONEY HUNTERS SET TO ATTACK IN GASTONIA Bill Poteat

The Gaston Gazette Story Excerpted from Gaston Gazette

Gastonia has a new professional baseball team, and its name is the Honey Hunters.

Honey Hunters was chosen to reflect the shared traits between Gastonia and those of the most fearless animal of the world. Fearless, determined, and resilient.

Mayor Walker Reid said the new moniker is "the perfect name for the team," and predicted the new stadium and the new baseball franchise will "bring this community together. It is a monumental accomplishment." The Honey Hunters will take the field at their new home stadium for the first time Thursday May 27th. Season tickets and team merchandise can be purchased at GoHoneyHunters.com. Fans can also follow team announcements and updates on social media under the handle, @GoHoneyHunters on Instagram and Twitter and Facebook.com/ GoHoneyHunters. Both Bellamy and Martin spoke of the natural rivalry Gastonia's new team will enjoy with the High Point Rockers, whose stadium is just 90 miles away up I-85 North. "We're hoping every year the championship comes down to Gastonia versus High Point," Martin said, and Bellamy injected, "High Point Rockers, we're coming for you."

2020 HIGHLIGHTS

Sal’s Pizza When Franky T’s Pizzeria shuttered in spring 2020, Sal Rando knew he should return to the kitchen along North New Hope Road near Dallas. In November, Rando reopened Sal’s Pizzeria, which closed in 2015, and was overwhelmed by support. The day after reopening, Rando said he had to turn the phones off to keep up with orders.

Booja Korean Restaurant Gaston County’s first Korean barbecue restaurant opened this summer in the former Wassabi Japanese Restaurant location on South New Hope Road.

Booja Korean Restaurant, headed by Yunhee Yu, serves traditional Korean dishes, sushi and cocktails, as well as Japanese dishes and sushi.

Aside from its solid beer offerings, owners David Hoy and Ray Steimel brought in Chef Tim Schafer to whip up a diverse menu of beer-infused dishes. The brewery also plans to relocate the majority of its brewing operations to Belmont.
