Last month I wrote about the first leg of our trip to visit colleges in western North Carolina, so this month I will continue to the second half of our trip.
The biggest names in the Middle East sporting community will gather for the Sports Industry Awards as the event returns for its eighth edition. SPIA recognizes the achievements of individuals, organizations, facilities and campaigns that contributed to the development of sport in the region.
It’s a strange time for high school seniors. Normally, they would have gone to a few college open houses in the spring and fall and visited many campuses over the past year, deciding where to spend the next four years of their lives. But thanks to COVID-19, these on-campus tours and open houses have been replaced with virtual tours. It’s helpful but really not the same as walking around campus. So my friend, who also has a high school senior, and I, with my senior, decided to take matters into our own hands and take a trip across North Carolina to do some self-guided tours and also to see the western parts of the state. Since we have all moved here within the past 1.5 years, it’s hard to make a decision to move to an area of the state you have never even been to!
