Community and Business

High school students from traditional, home and private schools in Caldwell and surrounding counties are invited to participate in the 5th Annual High School Shakespeare Monologue Competition sponsored by the Caldwell Arts Council and Caldwell County Schools.

Saturday February 11th is the first "Second Saturday" since before the holidays, and The Watauga County Arts Council invites you to enjoy new works in all four Galleries.

As 2017 opens the Two Rivers Community School 7th and 8th grade have been busy sharing the many lessons they learned throughout the first half of the school year.

Watauga County Schools has named its latest group of teachers of the year -- one from each school in the district. Chosen by their peers, the nine newly awarded educators were selected from a group of more than 300 teachers district-wide at all grade levels.

The Boone Area Chamber of Commerce held a Business Before Hours event Thursday morning at the Courtyard at Marriott and presented three Rick Phillips Awards of Merit for Development.
