RCC students win taxidermy ribbons

Three Randolph Community College taxidermy students won awards at the Surry Taxidermy Mini-Course, Competition & Trade Show at Surry Community College in Dobson recently.

Crystal Joyce of Seagrove won People’s Choice Best of Show and First Place for her “squirrel laying down” and a second place ribbon for her “banjo squirrel.” Tommy Childress of Thomasville won a second place ribbon for his red fox. Both Joyce and Childress competed in the Amateur Division.

Mason Siers of Staley won two third place ribbons in the Professional Division, one for a mink and the other for a raccoon.

RCC’s two-part, six-month taxidermy program covers small game and large game in winter and birds and fish in the spring. However, courses can be taken individually and the cost is $180 per course. Students will be advised about the acquisition of taxidermy tools. Students must provide their own legally-obtained specimens specific to the season.

For information, call instructor Steve Davis at 336-688-7856 or RCC’s Corporate & Continuing Education Division at 336-633-0268.
