WCC Ambassadors Are Back

Wilkes Community College has reinstated the Student Ambassadors program, effective for the 2015-2016 school year. Curt Miller, student activities coordinator/admissions representative, will serve as program advisor. Initially the program will be piloted at the Wilkes Campus before expanding to the Ashe Campus and Alleghany Center.  Students selected to serve as Wilkes Community College Student Ambassadors will represent the college in an official capacity at special events throughout the year. The Student Ambassadors Program, which will bring together students from various academic disciplines and cultural backgrounds, will serve to cultivate role models and mentors within the student population. Faculty members in each division of the college will begin identifying potential ambassadors during fall 2015 semester. Once students are identified, they must complete an application packet by January 2016. Eight ambassadors will serve the Wilkes campus, two from each academic division and will officially begin their duties in the summer of 2016.  Students will benefit from serving as a student ambassador. The program will offer leadership development and a $500 scholarship for each semester serving as an ambassador and a stipend provided by student activity funds.  For more information about WCC’s Student Ambassadors Program, call 336-838-6142

NC Governor Threatens to Veto Sales Tax Bill

The North Carolina Governor is threatening the General Assembly with a veto. Governor Pat McCrory said he would veto Senate Bill 369 which would change the sales tax distribution formula in North Carolina.  “This bill will result in a tax increase for millions of hard working middle-class families and small business owners throughout North Carolina,” Governor McCrory said. “Redistribution and hidden tax increases are liberal tax and spend principles of the past that simply don’t work. More importantly, this bill will cripple the economic and trade centers of our state that power our economy," the Governor explained.  In contrast McCrory is pushing for the General Assembly to implement the NC Competes jobs strategy and to pass the Connect NC bond program. The governor said SB 369 would be more accurately titled the “Tax Increase, Redistribution and Spending Act.” The Governor has repeatedly said that Connect NC is targeted investments in North Carolina’s roads, education, public health, parks and military. And the Governor says because of the state’s fiscal strength and strong balance sheet, no tax increase is needed to fund the bonds and the state’s AAA bond rating would be preserved.  To learn more about Connect NC, visit http://connect.nc.gov.

Foxx Votes in Favor of Dept of Veterans Affairs Bill

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx, from the 5th District and representing Wilkes, this week voted in favor of legislation that would give Congress and the public access to key data from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. “America’s veterans deserve better than the inexcusable mismanagement we’ve seen over the last few years, and this legislation will help ensure Congress has access to information that is essential to holding the VA accountable,” said Foxx. H.R. 2256, the Veterans Information Modernization Act, would require the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to submit an annual report to Congress. The bill also would establish the Veterans Expedited Recovery Commission to evaluate the VA’s ability to effectively treat veterans. Additionally H.R. 2256 would amend the VA’s definition of a “homeless veteran” to include a veteran or veteran’s family who is fleeing domestic or dating violence, sexual assault, stalking or other dangerous situation. H.R. 2256 passed the House unanimously this week.

Theft....Again

The old saying that lightening doesn't strike in the same place twice has been disproved, and apparently it's a proven fact, thieves will also strike the same place twice.  A property owner from the Antioch Church Road called the Wilkes Sheriff's Office to report another breaking, entering, and theft from his farm on Antioch Church Road. In this latest theft, the suspect took a Kubota RTV 900 that was parked in the barn with feed on it. It appears that the suspect dumped the feed out of the bed of the vehicle and drove away with the RTV.  It is believed the theft happened in the middle of the day one week ago today.  The stolen Kubota RTV 900 was valued at $14,000.  Sheriff's Deputies are still investigating; charges are pending.
