Celebrating Growth in Davie County and Building a Bright Future

After five years of successfully attracting manufacturing companies that created thousands of new jobs and millions of dollars in investments, Davie County had a problem — no more buildings and no more workers. “All of our working inventory had been absorbed into the system, and our unemployment rate had dropped to 3.7 percent which is almost fully employed,” said Terry Bralley, the president of the Davie County Economic Development Commission.

Davie High School Career and Technical Education (CTE) – Among the Best in North Carolina!

A four-year college degree is not the only pathway to a rewarding, high-paying career; just ask Janet Barnes and Darla Goldfuss. As facilitators of Davie High’s Career and Technical Education (CTE)  program, it is their job to open the eyes of students to all of their career options.
