Foxx Honors Local Homeowners Association

Avery-Journal Times

BANNER ELK — U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), attended the 25th anniversary of The Ponds Property Owners Association on June 2 and presented certificates of recognition to the founders and longtime residents of the neighborhood on Hwy. 105.

Foxx recognized the small community as “a hidden gem” in the mountains and spoke of the importance of community spirit in the daily lives of Americans.

Foxx, who represents 11 counties in western North Carolina, is the head of the House Education Committee. She was instrumental in having the National Center for Developmental Education established at Appalachian State University and currently is leading the effort to reform federal law by placing more emphasis on career education involving less than a traditional four-year degree.
