WCC INSTRUCTOR RECOGNIZED BY CISCO NETWORKING ACADEMY

    Wilkesboro, N.C. – Wilkes Community College congratulates Randy Gambill, lead instructor for Information Technology/Network Management for being recognized as an Advanced Level Instructor for Cisco Networking Academy for 2019.   This award recognizes Gambill’s achievement as one of the top 25 percent of instructors globally in student feedback and performance. Gambill’s name will be listed along with other instructors who have received awards on the CISCO Networking Academy Recognition Program page.   About Cisco Networking Academy – It began as an act of community. In 1997, Cisco donated some networking equipment to a local school. But no one was trained on it, so the gear sat unused. This initial donation led to a valuable insight. Technology is truly powerful when combined with education. Cisco Networking Academy was born that day, as we trained the staff to build their network. It became a movement. Cisco Networking Academy quickly grew from a single school to become an ever-expanding community of students, educators, employers, NGOs, Cisco employees, and customers. Now taught in 180 countries, we help shape communities and economies around the globe. Impacting the lives of 10.9 million students, we’ve created a pipeline of technical talent ready to innovate and shape the future. In partnership with 26,500 educators at 12,100 academies, we’re working with educators and instructors all over the world to deliver the best curricula for today’s world. Amounting to $2.6 billion, Cisco Networking Academy has made in-kind contributions […]

Huskies Name New Wrestling Coaches

    Ashe County High School is excited to announce that Brandon and Danny Dillard have been selected and approved to take over our Wrestling program as Co-Head Coaches. I am very excited about Brandon and Danny stepping into the role of Head Coaches for our Wrestling program. Their experience and background with the sport made this decision very easy for us. For many years they have assisted with the program and have been very successful assistant coaches. I have confidence in their ability to lead our high school wrestling program at a high level and build upon the success that we have already had. More importantly, they are committed to developing our student athletes into great wrestlers and great adults. With the addition of Assistant Coach Michael Elliott last year, who was a State Champion here at Ashe County and wrestled collegiately at Appalachian State University, we feel we have one of the strongest coaching staffs in the state of North Carolina. I want to thank Coach Adam Elliott for doing a great job leading our program following the retirement of Keith Phillips. Wrestling Co-Head Coach – Brandon Dillard has been named the new Co-Head Coach for Wrestling. Brandon grew up in Ashe County and attended Ashe Central High School. Brandon wrestled all four years and was a multi-year state qualifier and placer. He was a contributing member when Ashe Central Wrestling Team were runners-up to the State Champions. […]
