Mrs. Nicholas' Marketing class and Mrs. Medford’s Photography class recently welcomed photojournalist, Neale Bayly, father of senior Patrick Bayly, to Piedmont High. Mr. Bayly is sponsored by numerous companies, like BMW motorcycles, who have published his stories of traveling the world. The beauty of his work is that he has seen the world up close from the seat of a motorcycle. The stories Mr. Bayly writes are of roads less traveled, wildlife in their natural habitats, countryside untouched by construction, and waterways that reach the far ends of the earth. He also shared journeys with his son by his side and through the eyes of both he and Patrick. Our students were fascinated to learn that some of the most popular published photographs were shot by Patrick from the back of a motorcycle while in motion.
Congratulations to the Piedmont FFA team comprised of Karson LIttle, Zoey Thomas, Matthew Clyncke, and Reagan Ponder who won the North Carolina FFA Farm Business Management Career Development Event on March 7th. This event challenges the ability of students to analyze actual farm data to select the proper direction for their operation and enables team members to apply the skills they have learned in challenging real-life situations. As the highest scoring team, they are now eligible to compete in the National FFA event at the National FFA Convention in October. This event is one of 43 different career development events offered to North Carolina FFA members on the state level.
