CAA graduate wins Reserve Champion title

Next class begins this month

Friday, July 6, 2012 — Auctioneers from several states recently gathered in Asheville for the Auctioneer’s Association of North Carolina (AANC) state conference.

The Stanly Community College (SCC) Carolina Auction Academy (CAA) was well represented by the five instructors and six graduates in attendance.

Participants heard speakers such as Justin Ochs from Tennessee, announcer and auctioneer for Barrett Jackson car auctions; Don Horton, president of Asset Services Corp. in Mooresville; and Steve Profitt, vice president and general counsel for J.P. King Auction Co. in Gadsden, Ala.

The rookie contest showcased the talents of seven young men from across the state as they competed for the title of N.C. Rookie Champion.

They were judged on poise, salesmanship, product knowledge, interviewing skills, and bid calling.

Kenny Stancil came in first and Aaron T. Maye walked away with the title of Reserve Champion.

Other CAA graduates in the competition were Jon Manring and Ronald Reams.

Representing CAA were instructors Eli Detweiller Jr., Mark Lowder, Gary Boyd, and Bill and Betty O’Neal.

The next class of CAA begins Aug. 16, and registration will be open in mid-July.
