Fannin County High School’s SkillsUSA Chapter attended the State Leadership and Skills Conference


On Thursday, March 9th, Fannin County High School’s SkillsUSA Chapter attended the State Leadership and Skills Conference to compete in the SkillsUSA events. We had four students competing in state contests. Emma Pittman competed in the Automotive Electrical and Ignition Systems. Emma took a written test to advance to the top 16 where she competed hands-on for the championship. Emma finished in third place and won a bronze medal for her efforts. Dane Robbins competed in Automotive Paint and Refinishing. Dane completed a written test to advance to the hands-on portion. He finished third and was awarded a bronze medal for his efforts. We had two students that competed with an opportunity to advance to the national competition. Brooklyn Henderson competed in Prepared Speech. Brooklyn competed in the regional competition where she finished second. The second place finish allowed her to advance to the State Championship. Brooklyn did a great job presenting her speech in which she received a lot of positive feedback from the judges but did not place in the top three. Daniel Gibson competed in the Automotive Technology Service and Repair competition. Daniel placed third in the regional competition which allowed him to move on to the state competition. Daniel did his best but was not able to advance to the national competition. Also, there was a trade show at the conference. Our students were able to make some great contacts and try their hands at various skills such as laying tile, driving nails, participating in welding, truck- driving, and heavy-equipment simulations while also practicing other trade skills as well. This trip was a huge success and benefited every student that attended. We hope to grow our chapter next year and have more students compete in the various competitions that are offered.

Search for High School Principal halted

Community, News, Rebel's Corner

Blue Ridge, Ga. – The Fannin County Board of Education announced that they will be putting a temporary halt to the search for a new high school principal.

“We are going to pause the process of finding a permanent principal to replace Mr. Cioffi at Fannin County High School,” Fannin County Superintendent Dr. Michael Gwatney explained, adding that he will be sending out a letter later this evening giving more details on the situation.

Erik Cioffi, current Principal of Fannin County High School, submitted his resignation at the end of July (to be effective August 28, 2020) after accepting an Assistant Superintendent position in Massachusetts.

“This move allows us to be closer to our immediate families in New England,” Cioffi said at the time of accepting the new position in Massachusetts. “I was born and raised in Massachusetts so I will be returning home.”

Interim Assistant Principal of West Fannin Elementary, Debbie Decubellis, will be moved to Fannin County High School in the role of Interim Principal for the time being.

Cheves Commits to TMU

FCHS Soccer, Team FYN Sports

Recent graduate, Tristan Cheves, decided to take on the next chapter of his life as he committed to Truett McConnell University to play soccer! Tristan was part of Fannin County High School’s class of 2020 who did not have the most ideal senior year, but he still made the most of it by getting his name out there. 

Cheves was a dual athlete for the school who not only played for the varsity soccer team all four years, but he also ran with the varsity cross country team for one year. The dual athlete was even awarded for his great performance on the soccer field as he has received many awards for his accomplishments which include Most Valuable Player and an All-Region First Team mention two years in a row! Not only was the graduate juggling school and sports, but also clubs at the school. Tristan was a member of the high school’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) for all four years. 

“Tristan Cheves was a 3-year captain for the Rebels. He was the winningest captain in team history, leading the team to the playoffs two of those years. He was in the process of leading the team to playoffs this season as well before it was cut short due to the pandemic. Tristan will no doubt be a fun player to watch at the collegiate level,” Lee Johnson, head coach of the Fannin Rebels Soccer Team shared with Team FYN. 

When asking Cheves why he chose Truett McConnell University, he stated, “For men’s soccer, NAIA is just as good as NCAA D1 soccer. It’s just a different playing style. I wanted to play NAIA so I would learn European style soccer and be better prepared to go play professionally in Europe one day. I want to say a huge thank you to all of the coaches, families, and players that have been a part of my soccer career. Without every one of you, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

FCHS Volleyball, Team FYN Sports

While many recent graduates are trying to figure out what their next step in life will be, Maddie Bowers decided to further her education and volleyball career at Toccoa Falls College. Maddie is a recent graduate of the Fannin County High School 2020 class who got involved with the sport her eighth-grade year. Her plans are to attend Toccoa Falls College in the fall and pursue a degree in Early Childhood Education to become an elementary school teacher. 

Bowers has been awarded for her outstanding performance in volleyball over the years as she lettered for two years, was awarded the Defensive Player of the Year Award for two years, and earned the title of Most Valuable Player for one year. Not only was the athlete involved in volleyball, but she was also part of the club Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) at the school. 

When asking Maddie why she chose Toccoa Falls College, she shared, “All of the girls on the team were so welcoming and I wanted somewhere similar to home where I could grow my faith and continue my education and volleyball career.”

We are very excited to have Maddie become part of the Toccoa Falls Volleyball program. Maddie is going to bring energy and a high level of defense, which is what we were looking for. I can’t wait to see what she accomplishes at Toccoa Falls,” Jordan Southerland, head coach of Toccoa Falls Women’s Volleyball, shared with Team FYN Sports.

Two homes catch fire, one belonging to FCHS wrestling coach

Fannin County EMA/EMS, Health

BLUE RIDGE, Ga – Officials looking into how two homes in the county caught fire. The blazes occurred a little over a week apart, and one home belonged to first year Fannin County High School (FCHS) wrestling coach. No injuries reported in either fire.

In the early morning hours of Monday, Dec. 23, Fannin County Fire Department (FCFD) responded to a fire in the Aska Road area. The house was vacant at the time of the blaze with 60 to 70 percent of the structure engulfed in flames.

FCFD did shut down one lane on Aska Road for part of the morning while trying to contain the fire.

Currently, the State Fire Marshall is investigating the cause. Details about the Dec. 23 fire are still developing, and FYN will update as information becomes available.

On Sunday, Dec. 15, on Meadow Creek Way, FCHS Wrestling Coach Chuck Patterson and his family lost their home to a fire. Luckily, Chuck, his wife, Cathy, their boys and dogs all made it out safely. However, the family did lose their home, everything inside, and both vehicles.

An electrical area in the front of the home can’t be ruled out as possible cause at this time, according to FCFD. No foul play is suspected in the Patterson fire.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the Patterson family and has raised $18,950 as of Dec. 23. The GoFundMe has a goal of $25,000. United Community Bank (UCB) also set up the Chuck Patterson Benefit Fund for those interested in assisting the family during this trying time. To donate, simply approach a teller and tell them that you want to contribute to the benefit. If you have an account with UCB, you can also call the bank.

FCHS is accepting clothing donations for the Patterson’s. Their sizes are as follows:

Clothing donations can be dropped off at the FCHS office.

Chuck: XXXL shirt, 42-44 pant, 12.5 shoe

Cathy: XL shirt, 12-14 pant, 8.5-9 shoe

The boys’ Sizes: 8 shirt, 7 pant, 3 shoe and 5T or 4/5 shirt, 5T or 4/5 pants, 12 shoe (children)

The family is new to Blue Ridge and the Fannin County School District. The Fannin County High School wrestling team is lucky to have such an amazing and inspiring coach.

Pre-season interview with Fannin Rebels Head Coach Chad Cheatham

FCHS Football, Sports, Team FYN Sports

After a two week break, the Fannin County Rebels are ready to get back to work.

“They came back in and seemed to be real fresh and excited, and we had a lot of good energy,” said Head Coach Chad Cheatham about their first practice back.

Although the Rebels graduated eleven seniors off the team from last year, the team is taking it in stride.

Cheatham mentioned the strengths of the freshmen and sophomores who played last year, and then went a little bit into recruiting for this year.

“We picked up several good kids, kids that left the program even in the spring when I first got here are starting to come back in,” said Cheatham.

Rebels fans know that Cheatham led the team to the playoffs last year for the first time in several years, so BKP asked Cheatham if the team had set a standard for this year.

“Absolutely,” replied Cheatham. “I think that not only just making the playoffs, but advancing now to the playoffs…I don’t think that these guys want to accept, or will accept, anything less than that.”

The full interview can be viewed below, only on FYN TV!
