Robert Rankin, of Robbinsville, NC, owns the Snowbird Mountain Lodge, a scenic destination for guests looking to enjoy the beauty of Graham County, North Carolina. Robert Rankin, a Robbinsville, NC, resident, enjoys contributing to his community through civic involvement.

The Snowbird Mountain Lodge serves as a sponsor of the Stecoah Valley Center, an arts, crafts, and educational facility located in Robbinsville. Stecoah Valley Center’s music program centers on preserving local traditions for future generations. The Appalachian Musicians Program caters to fourth through 12th grade students in Graham County. They are introduced to musical customs on instruments traditional to the area, and they perform a recital of the material they have learned at the end of each program year.

The Center’s spring bluegrass festival in early May features a performance from the Appalachian Musicians students. Area youth are also encouraged to showcase their musical talent during the festival in the Heritage Alive! Mountain Youth Talent Contest, which is open to children ages 5 to 18.
