Success Stories


We have belonged to the Mitchell County Chamber of Commerce since we started Blue Ridge Christian News five years ago. We believe that it is extremely important to be involved in the business communities that we do business in and the Chambers of Commerce are the voice of the various business communities.

We appreciate what the Chamber of Commerce does to support the small businesses in our county and the extra promotion they give to area businesses. We are long-time members and feel it is important to join with the Chamber and other businesses to support our community.

Mayland Community College’s mission is to serve as the educational gateway for Mitchell, Avery, and Yancey counties, and in turn, strives to be an integral part of the service community as well as an economic driver for the region. A partnership with the Mitchell County Chamber is a way for community college employees to be made aware of and understand the educational training needs for a community that wants to better their lives through education. Working together with chamber members results in more opportunities for our community.
