Brandon Beachy Atlanta Braves

ATLANTA -- Brandon Beachy seems genuinely appreciative of the many individuals who have aided him during a journey that became more improbable as he spent this year enjoying a record-setting rookie season with the Braves. Two years ago, Beachy was a relatively unknown Minor League pitcher who had just completed his first full professional season. One summer earlier, he had seen his life's path significantly altered when the Braves signed him out of a relatively obscure collegiate summer league staged in rural Virginia. And it's been just four years since Beachy was attempting to celebrate Thanksgiving while dealing with the fact that he was still just a few months removed from that horrific day when his ill-fated attempt to prank his siblings led to a fire that destroyed his parents' home. "To be where I'm sitting now, I have a lot to give thanks for," Beachy said. "There is a lot of good that has come out of that experience. It's just one more experience in my life that shows how blessed I've truly been. "It reminds me to not take anything for granted because it can be taken away so quickly."

Kevin Beachy Coach of the Year

MILLERSBURG OH -- Like any good coach does, West Holmes cross country coach Kevin Beachy deflected all the credit for the girls team's success this season back toward his runners. In all four years that Beachy has been at the helm, though, the Knights have made it to regionals -- it's hard to believe this is just a coincidence. Beachy, who is this year's Daily Record Girls Cross Country Coach of the Year, engineered yet another fine season in Millersburg, leading the Knights to a fourth-place finish in the Ohio Cardinal Conference, a second-place finish at the Wayne-Holmes Invitational and a third-place finish at the Cambridge District to earn their fourth straight trip to regionals.

Tiffany Beachy Citizen Scientist Coordinator

Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont. Located approximately 130 miles from Chattanooga in the historic Walker Valley section of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, just outside of Townsend, Tenn.
“Our citizen science projects allow volunteers and students to become scientists for a day,” says TIFFANY BEACHY, citizen scientist coordinator at Tremont. “Many people feel like science is unapproachable, but these programs make it more tangible and help them feel like they are taking part in something bigger than themselves.”
Beachy says Monarch butterfly tagging, birding banding, and pond breeding amphibian monitoring programs are most conducive for groups. The terrestrial and aquatic salamander monitoring programs are reserved for school groups in order to prevent too much disturbance to ecosystems.

Kathy Beachy State Park Ranger

Sleeper State (MI) Park Ranger Kathy Beachy checks the age of the buck shot on Tuesday Nov. 15,
Beachy said 32 deer filtered their way through the check station on Tuesday, the opening day of regular firearm season, and about a dozen on Wednesday morning. She said checking heads at the station is voluntary for hunters. Most of the time, Beachy said, the age of the deer is recorded and a collectible patch is given out. The agents check a deer’s age by slicing open a side of the animal’s cheek, necessary after rigor mortis. They search for any telltale teeth — like tricuspids, which set in after a year and a half — and teeth wear. Click for article by Michael Mayday Bay City Times Thursday, November 17, 2011.

I was tied for sixth going in (to the finals), and I’m excited that I maintained that. “It was just exciting because I didn’t expect to make top eight. It was a big goal to accomplish.”

International Agri-Center Chief Executive Officer Jerry Sinift said former President Bush (keynote speaker) is the right person to address the need for job opportunities for returning military personnel.
