Sky Valley Fall Festival



The FFA is an organization that promotes and supports agriculture in our county and nationwide. It instills responsibility, life skills and a strong work ethic in its members. These kids carry full class loads and raise livestock. There are very few organizations that promote the growth of the whole person the way FFA does. 
Recently,  the group displayed its hard work at the Stephens County Hog Show and Sale.  If you are looking for healthy, lean, hormone free meat, these sales are for you. The next sale will be coming up in February.   Come out and support your local FFA chapter.

Tammy McGarity van Nordheim is in the SPOTLIGHT


We are oh so proud to spotlight former Toccoa Resident Tammy McGarity van Nordheim. Tammy, a SCHS graduate, has accomplished quite a lot since leaving our town. She has used her passions to develop a career and to empower women to fulfill their potential.


Tammy is an actress, model, photographer, and speaker.  She just completed the filming of a movie called "Lyric" in September.  Earlier this month Tammy’s talents were showcased at the premiere for her latest film called "The Productive Lie" .  Tammy can be seen in commercials and print work for Coca Cola, Georgia Pacific, Dark and Lovely, Petsmart, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Delta, AT&T, CNN and Home Depot among many others. Tammy is not just a pretty face and a compelling actress, but in a very short time, Tammy has proven herself to be a. He work behind the lense has caught the eye of many celebrity clients. Some of those include singer Regina Belle, actor, Carl Payne, singer/actress, Maria Howell, and former NFL football player, Stevie Baggs, Jr.

Tammy also uses her talents and drive as an instrument to encourage women to reach their full potential.  Girl in the Glass is an empowerment workshop that inspires women to trust, receive and believe in their ability to live in their truth. Women oftentimes look for validation and approval from parents, spouses, friends, etc.—forgetting to listen to their own voice. Girl in the Glass challenges women to expand their mindsets and embrace who they are meant to be. The workshops also help women strip away the labels and the ideas of what they ‘should be doing’ to uncover their pure passions and amplify that inner voice that says,  “I Can Do This!”.

Along with her all of this, Tammy is a full time mom and part time event planner. We don’t know how she does it all but we know she does it well.  She balances a love of what she does with career and handles all with grace. We are thankful to have her representing Toccoa so well.
