Softball Season Is Right Around The Corner

Softball Tryouts began on February 20, 2017! They have a jam-packed schedule and can’t wait to begin playing. The girls have been in the gym conditioning and are anxious to get outside. They’re having their first scrimmage coming up soon. Hopefully, they have a great season this year.

Mrs. Jones and Mr. Cashdollar are excited to get the season underway. Jones says, “Leadership is going to be our key factor, I believe we have many returning letter winners that are willing to fill the positions of the seniors we lost last year.” She believes that even though their team is going to be young, all of the girls have many skills and good attitudes.

The freshman class has many girls trying out, which is a great thing! All of the girls in the gym are hardworking and willing to learn. Jones said, “I believe in all of the years I’ve coached, this could possibly be the best team we’ve had.” After losing 4 seniors last year, they are going to need girls to step up and fill the empty positions.

The Girls will kick off their seasons in the upcoming month! Come support them at our brand new Softball/Baseball fields!

Sophomores Attend CCCTC

On January 24th and 25th, the Beaver Local sophomores attended the Columbiana County Career & Technical Center. They got to tour and interact with the students and staff, learning about all of the wonderful options provided at the Career Center. The sophomores got to experience the different career-based-classes they offer, such as Cosmetology, Welding, and Culinary programs, while also getting to eat lunch with the senior students who attend CCCTC.

These Sophomores listen to Mr. Williams in the cafeteria, anxiously waiting to view their next session.


The Career Center offers many opportunities for students to get a head start on their careers and graduate with not only a high school diploma, but also credentials in Auto-Collision Repair, Welding, Construction, Healthcare, and plenty more. In addition to getting a head start, you also get to meet new people from the other nine high schools that send students to the Career Center. These schools include: Beaver Local, Lisbon, East Palestine, Columbiana, Southern Local, Wellsville, Crestview, Leetonia, and United Local.

Mr. Williams, the principal at the Career Center, and our head coach of the Wrestling program is posing with his wrestlers, giving everyone the positive message of, “Choices.” Mr Williams states, “CHOICES, was set up to remind our wrestlers that they control their future and determine their success with the choices they make.” He gives out his message to not only his wrestlers, but all of the students at Beaver Local and the CCCTC. Mr. Williams used to be Beaver Locals Assistant Principal, but now holds the Principal position at the Columbiana County Career Center. Even though he does not work for the school anymore, he still gives the students here at Beaver Local encouragement and positive messages.

The Sophomores had a great time spending the day at the Career Center, one of the favorites was the Culinary lab. Addison Guildoo said “Getting to ice a cookie, was the highlight of my day.” Also, Elaina Howell stated, “Getting to watch them cook food was really exciting!” Another favorite from the Sophomores was the Cosmetology lab. Madison Newlun said, “Receiving a hand massage was so relaxing.” Lastly, Kobi Ream said, “I enjoyed it because they actually treat you like an adult there, and you’re still having fun!” The Career Center really seems to understand that students who learn in a hands-on atmosphere are students who are ready for their future.

If you want to attend the Career Center, you must be a Junior or Senior. In addition, you must be meeting the graduation requirements at your high school. You get the option to attend the Career Center either a half day, or a full day. Or of course, not go at all. Make sure you’re fulfilling all the requirements if you plan to start your career and attend the Columbiana County Career and Technical Center. If you are unsure of the requirements, visit our high school guidance office in the freshman pod!
