  • West Brunswick Booster Club...

     Early last month, I received a text message from West Brunswick High School Athletic Director Jimmy Fletcher.

    “It’s that time of year again,” Fletcher wrote in the text.

    Yes, indeed.

    Fletcher and other West Brunswick High School officials have scheduled the annual Booster Club raffle drawing and dinner for Saturday, March 10, inside the school’s cafeteria beginning at 6 p.m.

    I encourage all of our Beacon readers to carve out a free night next Saturday to purchase a $100 ticket.

     SHALLOTTE – Coach. Teach. Mentor.

    That’s the mantra Retired Col. Joseph Calisto, the senior army instructor for West Brunswick High School’s Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (JROTC) program, has tried his best to live by during his five-year stint at the Shallotte school.

    He’s done just that and more.

    For his efforts, he earned the Veterans of Foreign Wars’ 2018 North Carolina High School Teacher of the Year Award.

  • North Brunswick hires Bryan...

    First-year head coach Darren Willis resigned from his post as head coach of the North Brunswick High School football team following a 1-10 season and the school has tabbed Bryan Davis the new chief of the Scorpion football program.

    North Brunswick athletic director Randy Fennell confirmed the decision in a news release issued Wednesday, Jan. 24.

    Davis marks the third Scorpion head coach in the last four seasons. Larry Brock and Willis, most recently, preceded the new coach.

     The Brunswick Community College men’s basketball team opened the season with 10 wins in its first 11 games.

    Since that time, not much has gone right for head coach Walter Shaw’s club.

    The Dolphins suffered an eight-game losing streak that spanned from the end of December through the last week of January and BCC has only one win in conference play.
