An Evening With The Stars

An Evening With The Stars

Tomorrow night, we will be honoring Union County’s STAR student and teacher as well as the Business of the Year! The Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program honors Georgia’s highest achieving high school seniors and the teachers who have been most instrumental in their academic development.  The STAR student and teacher for Union County High School are:

UCHS STAR Student: McKenzie Hooper
UCHS STAR Teacher: April Krieger​

In addition, we will announce the Business of the Year for 2017 at the event. The Business of the Year is awarded to a chamber member who is actively involved in chamber and community functions throughout the year, and is of the highest moral and ethical character and demonstrates a genuine concern for community affairs through participation in civic groups, volunteer programs or non-profit organizations.

It is important to acknowledge excellence and achievement in our community, and this evening of food, entertainment, and recognition of these awards is an amazing opportunity to do just that. Reservations for this event closed on February 15, but we look forward to seeing those with reservations tomorrow!

There’s still plenty to do for every member of the family in our mountain paradise, even in the cold winter months. From outdoor activities like winter hiking and geocaching to more indoor fun like winery and distillery tours and spas, there’s never a dull moment in Blairsville! Need to fight those winter blues with some comfort food? There are plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from, from good ole’ southern cooking to farm-to-table sophistication.
