2011 Women’s Preview Sprints Coach Weaver returns an abundance of youthful but experienced sprinters from last year’s squad. Senior Kiara Crutchfield, who placed fifth at the Southern Conference Outdoor Championships in the 100-meter dash last year, will head up the group. Crutchfield also was a member of the second place 4x100-meter relay. Junior Christina Parker, who was also a member on the second place 4x100meter relay and finished eighth in the 200 at the outdoor championships, will assist Crutchfield in adding depth to the short sprints. ASU returns three-of-four runners from last year’s 4x400-meter relay that was a runner-up at the SoCon Outdoor Championships: sophomores Shenita Martin and D’Shawrna McLucas and junior Asia Dunlap. Dunlap claimed fifth in the 400 at the outdoor championships, while McLucas came in eighth place, respectively. Senior Nadia Liriano, who paced eighth at the SoCon Indoor Championships in the 400m, will be a top prospect to fill the final spot on the 4x400-meter relay.

runner, in hopes to help the Apps out in the 800. Last season, she ran the second fastest outdoor time on the team. Senior Dani Reese looks to accompany Dunalp in the middle distances, as she strives to make the podium in her final season. Reese ran the fastest indoor 800 time last year. Both Reese and Dunlap were members on the distance medley relay that finished third at the indoor conference meet. Juniors Stephanie Chapman and Kelsey Hanger, who are mainly known for running longer distances, will drop down at times to help in the middle distance races, as well. Distance After falling two points short of the SoCon Cross Country Championship, the women’s distance group has established itself as one of the top units in the Southern Conference. At the conference indoor meet last season, Hanger finished sixth in the 3000 and eighth in the 5000. She also cracked the top eight during the outdoor season with her seventh place finish in the 10,000-meter run.

Hurdles Crutchfield’s speed transfers over well to the short hurdle races as she finished third indoors in the 60-meter hurdles and sixth outdoors in the 100-meter hurdles. Fellow senior Michelle Brutus also looks to be a threat in the conference after she finished fourth in the 100-meter hurdles and eighth in the 400-meter hurdles at the SoCon Outdoor Championships. Kelsey Hanger

Martin looks to build off of her fourth place finish in the 400-meter hurdles and make a run at an all-conference honor in the challenging race. Junior Naadia Crutchfield and sophomore Joanna Davis will add depth to the hurdling crew in hopes to grab some points at the conference meets. Middle Dunlap has been transitioning to be both a long sprinter and middle distance

Senior Amy Neilson also placed in the 10,000-meter run by claiming fifth overall at last springs SoCon Outdoor Championships. Sophomore Brittney Caudle didn’t run indoors or outdoors last season, but she looks to make her mark on the conference the same way she has in cross country. Caudle won the 2009 SoCon Cross Country Championships, and fought through a season-long injury this year to place eighth. Hannah Orders enters her final season at Appalachian in hopes of earning allconference honors in the steeplechase, an event she placed eighth in last spring. Throws Senior Whitney Smyre, who has won all-SoCon honors seven times during her career, and sophomore Gayshawna Watkins return as ASU’s dominate one-two punch in the throwing events.

Smyre was sidelined partially last season due to an injury, but despite the setbacks, she was still able to claim fourth in the discus and third in the hammer at the SoCon Outdoor Championships. Watkins stepped up big as a freshman for Appalachian right away with her third place finishes in the shot put and weight throw at indoor conference. At the SoCon Outdoor Championships, she was the runner-up in the shot put and also placed eighth in the discus and fifth in the javelin. Sophomore Deanna Tiplady showed her value to the team, when she finished second at outdoor conference in the javelin.

Deanna Tiplady

Jumps Senior Rebecca Hazeltine, who placed third at indoors and outdoors conference in the high jump, will strive to claim an individual conference championship this year in the event. In the horizontal jumps, Kiara Crutchfield and senior Bianca Harvey hope to pair up to garner all-conference honors in both the long jump and the triple jump. Harvey earned fourth indoors and fifth outdoors in the long jump. She also grabbed eighth place in the triple jump at the outdoor meet. Crutchfield finished seventh in the long jump at outdoor conference. Multi Events Kiara Crutchfield and her sister Naadia Crutchfield will tag team the multi events this season. Kiara owns the school record in both the indoor pentathlon and outdoor heptathlon. She did not compete in the heptathlon for outdoor conference, but at the indoor meet she finished second in the pentathlon. Nadia took last season to learn the numerous events, and should be a staple in the grueling competitions this year.

2011 Men’s Preview Sprints Last year’s Southern Conference Outdoor Track Performer of the Year and Freshman of the Year, sophomore Landon Powell, will have high expectations to bring home more individual championships in the short sprints. He claimed first place in the 100 and 200 meters at outdoor conference. Junior Dennis Moore will accompany Powell in the resurgence of the Mountaineer’s short sprints. Moore finished third in the 100 and fourth in the 200m at the SoCon Outdoor Championships. Justin Thomas enters his second season at ASU after placing fourth in the 100 and fifth in the 200 at the conference outdoor meet. Thomas was also on the 4x100-meter relay team with Powell and Moore that took first place at the conference meet for the first time since 2004. Appalachian will likely look towards seniors Phillip Bush and Thomas Lockard to join the defending 4x100 champions as the fourth runner this season. Sophomore Tyler Combs will lead ASU as the top 400-meter runner returning. In the 400-meter dash at the SoCon Championships, Combs finished sixth outdoors and seventh indoors, respectively. He was also a member of the 4x400-meter relay that finished second indoors.

Tyler Combs

Hurdles ASU returns a duo of rising SoCon hurdlers in junior AJ Dohanic and sophomore Trey Jones. Dohanic was last year’s runner-up in the 110-meter hurdles, and he also finished seventh in the 400-meter hurdles. Jones followed Dohanic across the finishline in the 110-meter hurdles as he finished third. He also placed sixth in the 400-meter hurdles and fifth at the SoCon Indoor Championships in the 60-meter hurdles. Jones also competed at the USATF Junior Nationals and placed 18th, respectively. Bush should also strengthen the hurdling squad since he was one of Appalachian’s best hurdlers during the indoor season. Middle Distance Brandon Hudgins, a graduate student transfer from Winthrop, will head up the bulk of the Black and Gold’s load for the middle distance races. Hudgins won the 800 and

1500 meters at the SoCon Outdoor Championships. He also claimed fourth place in the 800 and mile at the conference indoor meet. Sophomore Alex Taylor will push Hudgins through out the year as Taylor is coming off a successful freshman campaign. At the SoCon indoor meet, Taylor finished fifth in the 800 and third in the mile, and at the outdoor meet, he claimed third place in both the 800 and 1500. Taylor finished his 2010 season with a ninth place finish at the USATF Junior Nationals in the 1500-meter run.

Alex Taylor

Junior Chris Moen, the 2009 SoCon indoor mile champion, will be looked towards to add depth at the middle distances, as well. Distance After another banner year for the men’s cross country program, there is a plethora of distance runners primed to make an impact on this year’s track squad. Junior Sean Soderman enters the 2010-11 season as the pace setter for the distance runners. Last year, Soderman took third in the steeplechase and fifth in the 5000-meter run at the SoCon Outdoor Championships. In 2009, he won the steeplechase at the USATF Junior National meet. Sophomores Michael Lilley and Burk Staub come off successful freshman seasons where both of them competed at the USATF Junior National meet in the 10,000-meter run. Lilley earned all-America honors with his sixth place finish, and Staub finished 10th, respectively. Last season, Brian Graves placed sixth in the 5000 and seventh in the 10,000-meter run at the outdoor conference meet. Will Raby will also be looked towards to help the squad after he excelled this season in cross country. Raby placed eighth at the SoCon Championships and was ASU’s top runner. Throws The throwing events have been the backbone to ASU’s recent championship success, and this coming season it will again be a huge strength at the conference meets. ASU has a huge advantage over the other teams in the conference by have three highly decorated seniors in Tim Daly, Jerod Gardner and Malcolm Styers. This trio has placed in the top-three at the SoCon Championships 19 times, and in the past two years, they

have combined to win nine of the 12 SoCon throwing events. Styers, who won all 2010 indoor and outdoor throwing events except javelin, was recognized as the SoCon Outdoors Outstanding Performer of the Year and the Field Performer of the Year. Junior Jared Stalling, who placed topeight outdoors in the hammer, shot put and discus, will also enhance Appalachian’s arsenal in the throwing events. Caleb Poplin will be looked at to acquire points at the outdoor conference meet in the javelin. Jumps Darius Purcell is one of the conference’s top high jumpers and looks to claim the conference title after finishing second both indoor and outdoor the past two seasons. Purcell is one of the best jumpers in the region, and he will make a strong push for the NCAA Championships if he surpasses the seven-foot mark. Mike Wilson and Ryan Twiford look to soar higher than all the other SoCon competitors in the pole vault this season.

Mike Wilson

Wilson finished fourth in the pole vault at the SoCon Outdoor Championships. Twiford was the 2008 outdoor champion and the indoor runner-up in 2009, and he hopes to reclaim the top spot in the conference this season. Not only will Bush be utilized in the sprints, but he also will be asked to continue to produce points in the horizontal jumps. Last year, Bush just missed all-SoCon honors at the indoor meet by placing fourth, and he also placed sixth at outdoor conference. In the triple jump, ASU will look towards Wilson and a handful of freshman to fill this void. Wilson finished seventh at the SoCon Outdoor Championships last season. Multi-events Senior Jake Goodchild enters the season with a bunch of experience and SoCon honors in the multi-events. Goodchild finished eighth in the indoor heptathlon. In previous seasons, he placed second in the SoCon outdoor decathlon and third in the indoor heptathlon in 2009.

Facilities Holmes Convocation Center

Kidd Brewer Stadium

Appalachian indoor track & field enters its seventh season in the George M. Holmes Convocation Center. The Holmes Center serves as home of Mountaineer indoor track and field, as well as Appalachian’s men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball programs. The facility houses a 300m directional mondo surface. Standing on Rivers Street at Appalachian State University, the 200,840-square foot Holmes Center serves as the cornerstone to the entry to campus Holmes Center Track and houses ASU’s Department of Health, Leisure and Exercise Science. The structure also includes the 8,325-seat Seby Jones Arena, which hosts a number of community and cultural events in addition to Appalachian athletics, including graduation and convocation ceremonies, trade shows and concerts. The facility opened on November 17, 2000 with a celebration followed by a men’s basketball contest between Appalachian and the University of North Carolina. With much anticipation, every seat for Indoor Holmes Center Setup the ASU-UNC showdown was sold in advance, marking the first pre-gameday sellout in school history for any sporting event. The athletics ticket office sold the full allotment of tickets for the inaugural contest at the Holmes Center in just 12 minutes. Public service, a cornerstone upon which Appalachian was founded, is the hallmark of the two individuals whom names adorn the university’s convocation center, as former ASU Chancellor, Francis T. Borkowski announced that the center would be called the George M. Holmes Convocation Center and its arena the Seby Jones Arena on March 20, 1999. Holmes is a Republican member of the North Carolina House of Representatives, representing the 41st District (Yadkin, Wilkes and Alexander Counties). He is the senior co-chair of the North Carolina House of Appropriations Committee. A native of Mount Airy, N.C., Holmes attended Appalachian on a football scholarshipin the 1950’s. Holmes first entered political office from 1975-76 and has served 11 terms since 1979. He serves on the Governor’s Advisory Budget Commission, the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations and the Joint Legislative Transportation Oversight Committee. Holmes was instrumental in securing the bulk of the $36.8 million needed to build the convocation center. Jones served as mayor and a council member of Raleigh from 1967-71. He also served on ASU’s Board of Trustees for eight years, chairing the Board in 1990-91.

The outdoor home of the Appalachian track and field team, Kidd Brewer Stadium stands 3,333 feet above sea level and seats 16,650. Also home to the football and field hockey teams, it was the first facility in either North or South Carolina to install artificial turf, with Appalachian and Elon staging the first football game on fake grass in the Carolinas, Oct. 3, 1970. Opened Sept. 15, 1962, the stadium was originally constructed with 10,000 permanent seats. Seating capacity was expanded to 18,000 following the 1978 season. Completion of an extensive renovation and restoration project on the original 10,000 seats in 1995 readjusted the seating capacity to 16,650. A multi-purpose facility, Kidd Brewer Stadium is also home to intramural sports, while classes and the community use the facility, as well. Owens Field House, at the north end of the stadium, houses athletic and fundraising offices, locker rooms and equipment areas, along with the Dr. Hugh S. Daniel Conference Room. In 1989, a new building was added adjacent to the field house, with athletic and coaching offices, the Dr. Evan Ashby Sports Medicine Room, strength and conditioning areas, and locker rooms. The stadium is also in the midst of renovations to add a new athletic complex, slated to be completed by the fall of 2009. An addition of 4,000 seats on the east side was completed in the summer of 2008. The stadium is named after Kidd Brewer, one of the Mountaineers’ most successful head football coaches, and a colorful part of North Carolina history. Brewer, a Winston-Salem, N.C., native, served as football coach of the Mountaineers for four seasons (1935-38), compiling a 30-5-3 overall mark. An all-American backfield star at Duke University, Brewer’s 1937 Appalachian squad was unbeaten and unscored upon in the regular season. After leaving Appalachian, Brewer started a sales career, but shortly thereafter reported for active duty in World War II. He served as a Naval lieutenant in the Pacific. After the war Brewer was secretary to U.S. Sen. Josiah W. Bailey (D-N.C.). Upon Bailey’s death in office Brewer served his replacement, Sen. William B. Umstead, as administrative assistant. Brewer returned to North Carolina and ran for lieutenant governor in 1956. Between campaigns for governor (1964) and state court of appeals (1968), he made a name for himself as a developer, insurance salesman and philanthropist. Kidd Brewer Stadium, dedicated Sept. 3, 1988, was named Conrad Stadium from 1962 to 1988 for William J. Conrad, a former Appalachian State University trustee and R.J. Reynolds executive.

Varsity Gym During both the indoor and outdoor seasons, the track and field teams are able to escape the elements with an expansive practice facility in Varsity Gym. A new Mondo track surface was added in 2007 with a length of over 100 meters. Along with the track surface, the facility houses a shot put and weight throwing area, pole vault and high jump facilities, a full weight-lifting area and athletic training facilities. Varsity Gym’s floor also received a facelift in 2008, as a new hardwood surface was installed. The arena is the practice home for wrestling, men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and field hockey.

Educating North Carolina’s Citizens and Leaders

Appalachian State University is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Boone, N.C. At an elevation of 3,333 feet, Boone began as a frontier outpost named after pioneer Daniel Boone, who first explored the area in the 1760s. Since that time, the area has attracted those seeking natural beauty, adventure and learning. Appalachian is a member of the 16-campus University of North Carolina system. The university offers a challenging and stimulating learning experience for nearly 17,000 students. Appalachian combines the best attributes of a small liberal arts college with those of a large, research institution. It is particularly known for its research and outreach in health-related fields and the areas of energy/environment/economics. Distinctively residential, the main campus encompasses 411 acres. It includes 19 academic buildings, 20 residence halls, four dining facilities and 11 recreational and athletic facilities. Appalachian also operates a living-learning center in New York City. Off-campus programs are offered in 10 counties through collaboration with area community colleges. The university is characterized by close collaboration between students and faculty, quality academics, and life-changing co-curricular activities that develop graduates with real-world capabilities. Appalachian also emphasizes the importance of sustainability and service to communities, both locally and globally. Consistently ranked among U.S. News and World Report’s best public universities in the Southeast, Appalachian is also noted as a “best value” by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine and other publications. Appalachian supports a broad-based athletics program, featuring 10 men’s and 10 women’s intercollegiate teams. The Mountaineers hold NCAA Division I status and have been members of the Southern Conference since 1971. The Mountaineers won their 30th Southern Conference Commissioner’s Cup for overall excellence in men’s athletics during the 2009-10 academic year. The award was established in 1979. In football, the Mountaineers won three consecutive NCAA Division I FCS national championship titles – in 2005, 2006 and 2007. The Germann Cup, which recognizes overall women’s excellence, has been won by Appalachian eight times since the award’s inception in 1987. This is the second-most in league history. Since joining the Southern Conference, the Mountaineers have captured league titles in football, men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor track, wrestling, baseball, men’s soccer and men’s tennis. Appalachian’s student-athletes excel in the classroom as well as on the playing field. In the 2009-10 academic year, 69 student-athletes made the Southern Conference’s academic all-conference teams. To be eligible, a student-athlete must possess at least a 3.2 cumulative grade point average. One Mountaineer had a 4.0 GPA.

Appalachian Athletics Mission Statement

The Department of Athletics at Appalachian State University believes in maintaining the intercollegiate athletics program as an integral part of the University’s overall program of education, with emphasis on and priority given to the high academic quality and standards and the complete development of the student. Appalachian State University provides opportunity and encouragement for student-athletes to progress toward degrees of their choice and to develop athletic abilities in an environment consistent with high standards of academic scholarship, leadership and institutional loyalty. The Department of Athletics is committed to ensuring the general welfare of the student-athlete and to encouraging the highest standards of sportsmanship on behalf of student-athletes, the student body and the University’s supporters. The intercollegiate athlete representing ASU is both a bona-fide student pursuing a degree program and an amateur competitor. Appalachian Athletics is committed to insuring equitable recruitment, participation and treatment of individuals including members of under-represented populations through its athletics administration, staff, coaches, programs and policies. The University’s policy of non-discrimination represents a moral and ethical, not merely a legal, imperative. The University has determined that its athletics program will meet the necessary qualifications, guidelines and funding to hold membership in Division I of the NCAA. The athletics administration, the faculty athletics representative and the Athletics Council work together to insure that all teams and coaches follow the rules and regulations governing this division. A sound program of intercollegiate athletics should benefit the institution through its effects on students, alumni ad the institution itself. Specifically, it should maintain and improve the loyalty and esprit de corps of the student body, and in strengthening the pride and enthusiasm of the alumni; it should serve as a favorable public relations factor and provide benefits to the participants.

Appalachian Athletics Diversity Statement

Appalachian athletics promotes an inclusive culture that fosters equitable participation for student-athletes and equitable career opportunities for coaches, administrators and support staff from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

What’s visible from Kidd Brewer Stadium… State’s Largest Wind Turbine – This community-scale, 100-kilowatt wind turbine stands 153 feet and feeds enough electricity directly to the grid to power 15 homes. It was paid for primarily through student funds and in partnership with the campus utility, New River Light and Power. Aside from producing clean energy, the turbine serves as an educational monument to Appalachian’s ethic of sustainability. Howard’s Knob – Located just a half mile from downtown Boone, this peak has an altitude of 4,420 feet. It was named for Benjamin Howard, a Revolutionary War loyalist who fled to a cave there to escape American patriots. Rich Mountain – One of 20 North Carolina mountains bearing this name, the Watauga County ridge extends northwest from Boone. It is named for its unusually fertile though rugged slopes.

Chancellor Kenneth E. Peacock

Dr. Kenneth E. Peacock became Appalachian State University’s sixth chancellor in July 2004. During his tenure, Appalachian has experienced significant growth in several areas, and the quality of the university’s academic programs has continued to advance, directing extensive national attention to Appalachian. The university has become a destination of choice among the brightest and best high school graduates, with freshman SAT scores averaging 1158 and grade point averages of 3.92 in the 2009-10 academic year. Since Chancellor Peacock assumed office, Appalachian has raised more than $65 million in private funding. Appalachian ACCESS, a university scholarship program offering North Carolina’s low-income students living at or below the poverty level a four-year university education debt free, was first awarded to members of the freshman class in 2007. Capital improvements and new construction under Chancellor Peacock’s leadership has included the Student Recreation Center, Central Dining Facility, Athletics Center, residence hall renovations, steam system upgrades and the opening of Belk Library and Information Commons. Construction projects currently under way include a new college of education building, new on-campus housing, a facility for the Heltzer Honors Program and an expansion to Plemmons Student Union. Prior to his appointment as chancellor, Dr. Peacock served at Appalachian as interim provost and executive vice chancellor. He joined the faculty in Appalachian’s Walker College of Business in 1983, was appointed assistant dean of the business school in 1987, associate dean in 1989, and served as dean of the college from 1992-2003. Previously, he taught at the McIntyre School of Commerce at the University of Virginia and worked for the accounting firm of Price Waterhouse & Co. in its Winston-Salem and Charlotte offices. Chancellor Peacock received his undergraduate degree in accounting at Mars Hill College and his master’s and doctorate degrees in accounting at Louisiana State University. In September 2006, he received the Outstanding Alumnus Award from Mars Hill College. He is a native of Rocky Mount. He and his wife, Rosanne, have two grown sons, Chris and Brian. Chancellor Peacock serves on the NCAA Division I Presidential Advisory Group, Appalachian Regional Healthcare Foundation Board of Directors, Homes for Children Board of Directors, Leadership North Carolina Board of Directors, and he chairs the North Carolina Campus Compact Executive Board. He has been named a Paul Harris Fellow by the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. He also is the recipient of the Golden Eagle Award for Leadership from AdvantageWest, the L. Richardson Preyer Alumni Award from Leadership North Carolina, and a visionary leadership in education award from the Caldwell County Chamber of Commerce. In addition, the Peacocks are involved in a variety of civic/community programs and activities.

From the Desk of Chancellor Peacock ...

Kidd Brewer Stadium—also known as “The Rock,” a fitting term for the solid preparation our student-athletes achieve during their time at Appalachian State University—is filled with excitement in anticipation of another great season of Mountaineer football. I join you in taking great pride in our outstanding athletic facilities which were opened only a year ago and benefit the student-athletes and coaches of all 20 varsity sports. These facilities were a long-time coming, and I appreciate the cooperation and patience our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends offered while the project was completed. It was definitely worth the wait. Under the complex’s “Big A” sign, there’s a lot to cheer about: The Mountaineers have earned both the Southern Conference’s Commissioner’s Cup for overall excellence in men’s athletics 30 times since the award was established in 1979 and the Germann Cup, recognizing the top women’s program in the conference, six of the 18 years the award has been presented. In addition, our student-athletes consistently make the Southern Conference’s Academic Honor Roll, and all 20 varsity athletics teams continue to rate at or above national and Southern Conference averages in the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate (APR). Our strategic plan states that Appalachian aspires to be a model 21st-century, nationally recognized university combining the best characteristics of a liberal arts education with the opportunities afforded by many research institutions. We are committed to attracting, educating and graduating the best students and to producing the highest levels of scholarship.   Appalachian, an influential world citizen preparing students for life in global and local communities, remains an excellent value.  Once again, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine has recognized Appalachian in its list of the nation’s top 100 values in public colleges and universities in 2009-10. Kiplinger’s rankings are based on a combination of outstanding academic quality and an affordable price tag. We are also committed to improving citizen’s lives in this region, state and nation through research, such as the federally-supported AppalAIR project that monitors air quality and atmospheric conditions and their impact on the region’s ecosystems and climate. Additionally, Appalachian was one of 20 universities selected worldwide to participate in the 2011 Solar Decathlon competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. This prestigious design competition will take place on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., in October, 2011. The newly remodeled Frank Hall, a 203-bed residence hall, has been awarded LEED® gold certification, the nation’s preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. Our commitment to providing quality healthcare professionals was demonstrated when Appalachian’s new College of Health Sciences officially began operating this past July and its Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program was accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) for five years, the longest period of time for which CCNE grants accreditation to a new program. The program admitted its first students in May 2010. Notable scholarship, excellent teaching and meaningful service define this institution. Thank you for your continued support of Appalachian, and I hope you enjoy the game.  

With Mountaineer pride,

Boone, North Carolina

Boone lies nestled in a small valley in the heart of the Southern Appalachians and is named after the hunter and explorer Daniel Boone, who spent time in the region during the 1760s. Among its accolades are inclusion in National Geographic Adventure magazine’s “Best Places to Live and Play,” Norman Crampton’s “100 Best Small Towns in America,” USA Today’s “10 Great Small Towns with Huge Backyards” and U.S. News and World Report’s “10 Best Places to Retire in the U.S.” Watauga County was formed in 1849 and the Town of Boone incorporated in 1872. Appalachian State University began as Watauga Academy in 1899 to educate the mountain children and ultimately to prepare teachers for service through western North Carolina. It became Appalachian State Teachers College in 1929 and joined the University of North Carolina system in 1971. Boone is a college town in the best sense – where people say hello on the street and a vibrant downtown is mere steps from the university campus. It is characterized by beautiful mountain scenery, distinct four-season weather, mountain heritage culture and casual living – and it is the center of tourism and commerce for Watauga County and the surrounding High Country. Outdoor activities, cultural events, fine dining and eclectic shops bring visitors from all over the world. Boone enjoys a low rate of unemployment with the university as a top economic driver followed by a combination of tourism, small business and residential home construction. Boone is a year-round playground for business meetings and conferences, as well as leisure. The cool summers, dazzling colors of fall and serene winters offer something for every nature lover. An unusually wide array of quality arts and cultural programming enhance the Boone community. The university’s An Appalachian Summer Festival, a month-long celebration of performing and visual arts, has brought Lily Tomlin, Branford Marsalis, Paul Taylor Dance Company, London City Opera, Andre Watts, Charlie Daniels, the Glenn Miller Orchestra and other notable performers. During the academic year, Appalachian hosts the Performing Arts Series with artists such as Garrison Keillor and the National Symphony Orchestra. The jewel of downtown Boone is the university’s Turchin Center for the Visual Arts. It features six gallery spaces and a robust community education and outreach program. Its exhibitions focus on a blend of new and historically important artwork, and feature nationally and internationally renowned artists as well as many of the finest artists of the region. Boone offers an uncommon quality of life. That’s why many visitors come for a weekend and stay for a lifetime.
