Couriering Clemmons: What was happening in the area this week in 1992.

The Clemmons Village Council voted 3-1 to add a fifth member to the body, eliminating the need for the mayor to vote to break any ties.

This new action would be put in place during the 1993 election, when three council seats were up for election.

W.C. McGee, Bob Caudill and Warren Kasper voted yes to support the change and Keith Falls voted no.

Andrew Clinton Morris was presented his “On My Honor” award by the Boy Scouts. The award recognizes a scout for their service through their religion.

A team from Clemmons Elementary School won second place at the annual “Odyssey of the Mind” competition held at Western Carolina University.
Team members were Jimmy Miller, John Branch, Adam Emery, Krissy Vaden, Kimberly Randolph, Amy Way and C.J. Kiser. Coaches were Lisa Miller and Steve Way. The team had to build a monument and dedicate it to a person or an event and they chose the “Trail of Tears.”

Dr. Mark Corts, then the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, was awarded the Clemmons Sertoma Club’s Service to Mankind Award. Corts had been with the church 29 years at the time and oversaw its growth from several hundred members to more than 4,000.

West Forsyth theater students were gearing up for their production of “Annie Get Your Gun.”

Carol Dellinger was cast in the title role as Annie Oakley, Dave Early was Buffalo Bill, Rhett McAlister was Frank Butler, Michelle Leagans was Dolly Tate, Brantley Gasaway was Charlie Davenport, and Tora Phan was Sitting Bull.
