Last Saturday, May 17th, the Key Club sponsored a volleyball tournament to benefit Evan Groves, a local boy with a rare skin disease known as EB (Epidermolysis bullosa).

On April 9, Emily Moyers, a junior at AHS, was elected Northern Area FFA vice president.
She is Alleghany’s first Northern Area FFA officer.
As vice president she gets to attend the national FFA convention in Louisville, Kentucky. “I am very excited about going to the national FFA convention,” Moyers said.
She will also have many other responsibilities including the Northern Area Days of Service during the summer, the Northern Area Rally in April, helping with Spirit Night during National FFA Week in February, helping with fair activities in the northern area throughout the year, and attending the area officer meeting in September. “I’m nervous about all of the public speaking, but I know it will be a good experience for me,” Moyers said.
Emily was nominated as a Northern Area candidate by Mrs. Hinkle, based on her hard work, leadership skills, and agricultural background. Before being elected she had to complete multiple steps including taking a written test, doing a personal interview with last year’s officers and two advisers, writing a sample thank you note, and completing a resume to apply for office. “I didn’t expect to be elected vice president. I am very thankful and excited to see what next year will bring. This definitely opens many doors for me,” Moyers said.
Emily plans on running for state office during her senior year. “I do realize state office will be very competitive, but I plan on working very hard this year to prepare,” Moyers said.

On Saturday, April 5th, 2014, Olivia Price, a 2013 graduate of Alleghany High School and postgraduate student at JRTC, won the state culinary competition for Skills USA. Graduates can compete along side of high school students.
There are multiple categories, and Olivia specialized in garde manger, which is working with cold food. She made a club sandwich, a couple salads following a specific recipe, and a composed dessert.
Contestants are judged on sanitation, on how well they perform under pressure, and on the techniques they use.
Olivia is the first state champion Chef Tom has ever taught. “This was the first state champion I’ve had in any event, the first gold medalist in the nine years I’ve been doing it. I’m extremely proud of her for that,” said Chef Tom.
Though a graduate, she is still very connected with the school, spending first block in Mrs. Hartsfield’s class, second block as a volunteer class assistant in Chef Tom’s culinary class and third block finishing her third year of culinary arts at JRTC. She also completed Servsafe, which is a nationally accredited food safety and sanitation course.
