 The Yancey County Board of Education held a special meeting on November 14, 2016, to review and discuss qualifications packets received from architects from across the state interested in designing the new West Elementary School.

Of the four architect packet of qualifications received, the school board unanimously selected Architectural Design Studios, LLC, as the architect for the new school.

“We are very excited to work with Amy Dowty and Mike Cox of ADS,” stated Superintendent Tony Tipton. “This firm is very familiar with our system, our needs, and the pride and heritage of our county. They know what is important to us as a school system – but also as a mountain community.”

Superintendent Tipton and the School Board look forward to beginning the design process with ADS.
