Chamber members enjoy a trio of recent Business After Hours events In September, over 80 Chamber members attended a Business After Hours that was hosted jointly by the Vance County Arts Council; Kittrell Job Corps; Interiors and Gifts, Too; and the Rosemyr Corporation. After a ribbon-cutting for the new Arts Council location at 233 South Garnett St., guests visited Interiors and Gifts, Too at 133 S. Garnett St. to sample food and beverages and listen to a live pianist while browsing through the store. Next, attendees visited the Rosemyr Corporation, which is located upstairs in the old Croatan Club and next to the arts council location. Finally, guests munched on hors d’oeuvres prepared by the culinary department at Kittrell Job Corps Center while drinking in the sights and sounds of local artists and the North Carolina Opera at the arts council facility. The Vance County Farm Bureau hosted a Business After Hours in October at their loca-

tion at 2949 U.S. 1/158 North. Guests savored beverages and delectables prepared by employees and families of Farm Bureau. The staff provided information on “Healthy Living For A Lifetime,” a service sponsored by North Carolina Farm Bureau which will provide health screenings to the under-served members of the community. The initiative provided screenings at no charge from a 50-foot mobile unit parked at Maria Parham Medical Center on Nov. 3. At the end of October, a Business After Hours was co-hosted by Ted’s Service Company and the Henderson Family YMCA. The event was held at the YMCA, where guests were guided through the “Hall of Terror,” part of the YMCA’s Halloween festival.

National Farm-City Week celebration set for Nov. 18 As part of National Farm-City Week, Vance County Farm Bureau is sponsoring the 2010 Farm-City Week breakfast on Nov. 18 at 8 a.m. in the fellowship hall of First Presbyterian Church. The featured speaker for the breakfast will be Mike Walden. Walden is a William Neal Reynolds professor and N.C. Cooperative Extension Service economist in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics in N.C. State University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. He teaches and writes on personal finance, economic outlook and public policy. The mission of the National Farm-City Council is to enhance the linkages between farm families and urban residents, providing local organizations with educational programs and materials about the people who grow their food.

In recent years, the major focus of the programs and materials has been on consumer and classroom education. Student activity sheets, teacher packets, place mats and bookmarks are just a few of the materials the council has created to support its mission. In the past year, thousands of materials were used in classrooms, at farm-city banquets, at civic club meetings and in other venues. Farm-city activities are grassroots in nature. Communities across the nation hold farm-city events ranging from banquets to tours to job exchanges. Farm-city groups work closely with “Agriculture in the Classroom” programs in educating students and teachers about agriculture. Registration deadline for the Nov. 18 event is Friday. For information or to register, contact the Chamber at 438-8414.

Carolyn Harris selected Principal of the Year for Vance County Carolyn Harris, who has been the principal of New Hope Elementary School for three years, has been selected as the Vance County Schools’ Principal of the Year for 2010-2011. Harris was chosen as recipient of the honor from among the 16 principals in Vance County Public Schools. She was among three finalists interviewed by a special selection panel. Other finalists for the school system’s Principal of the Year were Brian Creasman of Northern Vance High School, and Larry Webb of Eaton-Johnson Middle School. Harris led her school to designation as a North Carolina School of Distinction, an honor received from the N.C. Department of Public Instruction after 80.2 percent of students in grades 3-5 score Carolyn at or above grade level in reading and mathematics on state end-of-grade tests administered in May. New Hope was the top achieving elementary school in the local school system for the 2009-2010 school year. In addition, New Hope Elementary met “adequate yearly progress” goals under the strict No Child Left Behind federal guidelines, and met “expected growth” criteria under state standards. The school’s fifth graders led all fifth graders in the school system by having the highest scores on the state science test. Last school year, 82.3 percent of New Hope’s fifth graders scored at proficiency on the state test. This represented an increase from 55.6 percent proficiency on the science test in 2008-2009. The achievements at New Hope Elementary are especially impressive considering the school’s demographics. Among students in grades 3-5 last year, a total of 93 percent of the population was economically disadvantaged. In addition, five percent of the students are identified as gifted in reading; eight percent of students are identified as gifted in math; 11 percent are iden-

tified as exceptional children; and five percent are identified as having limited English proficiency. Before becoming principal at New Hope, Harris served as the school’s assistant principal for nine years under the leadership of Oddis Smith. Harris is now in her 33rd year in elementary education, serving as a classroom teacher for the first 21 years. New Hope Elementary School has had no teacher turnover during the last two years. The N.C. Department of Public Instruction identifies New Hope as having a 100-percent highly qualified staff. New Hope has 75 percent of its faculty with 10 years or more of experience in education. The school also boasts an impressive number of community volunteers and business partners who Harris play a major role in supporting the daily operations of the school. In her instructional leadership focus presented to the local Principal of the Year panel, Harris wrote: “I appreciate the opportunity to be principal of New Hope School. I bring a variety of educational experiences to the school. I have had the wisdom to surround myself with dedicated staff whether in the cafeteria or in the classroom. I have no problem allowing others to make decisions, but I have no problem making difficult decisions.” “The physical plant of New Hope is the best it has ever been, and the staff is most qualified,” she continued. “This transformation was achieved by taking small steps each day and by doing what is best for New Hope’s students and staff. In the future, the New Hope staff will continue to strive to educate each child in the best way possible using all of the resources available. The best is yet to come.” Harris will now go on to represent her peers in Vance County Schools in regional competition for the Wachovia Principal of the Year for North Carolina.

Chamber co-hosts candidates’ forum The Vance County commissioners’ meeting room became the site of the 2010 Candidates’ Forum on Oct. 17. The standing room only crowd of voters were given an opportunity to learn more about local candidates and to assist in formulating questions for them at the forum, which was hosted by the Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce, The Daily Dispatch and WIZS. The event was aired on WIZS as it unfolded. Opposed candidates were given an opportunity to speak to the audience about their positions on issues pertinent to the upcoming election. Gene Purvis of VanceGranville Community College served as moderator of the event. The forum’s format gave each candidate an opportunity to make an opening statement and then participate in a question-and-answer session. Each candidate was given the opportunity to respond to the questions within a 60second time frame. Questions from the audience were submitted to members of the media panel for consideration. Also part of the forum were members of the State Senate race in District 7, incumbent Sen. Doug Berger and challenger Michael Schriver. In the District 32 House of Representatives race, incumbent Rep. Jim Crawford was unable to attend, leaving Libertarian challenger Barbara Howe to field questions for that race. Many locals took advantage of the opportunity to pose questions to the candidates and said that they found the forum to be informative and helpful in their voting decisions.

Sam Brummitt understands how a stroke can alter your life – he suffered one in 2008. Sam also knew that he wanted to get back to the things he loved, like traveling with his wife Ruth and playing golf. That’s why he chose Maria Parham’s Rehabilitation Services. Thanks to his determination and the stroke care experts at Maria Parham Medical Center, Sam’s life got back on course.
