at prestigious conference at George Mason University

Jessie Palmer, a sophomore at Franklin High School, has been nominated to represent North Carolina as a National Youth Correspondent to the 2012 Washington Journalism and Media Conference at George Mason University.

Palmer has been awarded the opportunity to join a select group of 250 students from across the country to participate in an intensive week-long study of journalism and media. Palmer was chosen based on academic accomplishments and a demonstrated interest and excellence in journalism and media studies.

The student submitted an essay about the Arnold amendment, a proposed Constitutional amendment that would allow naturalized citizens to become President of the United States. Presently, only native born Americans can legally run for the position of Commander in Chief.


It is no secret that the nation's economy is far from recovering, and with record high unemployment rates, and more and more families struggling to make ends meet, every little bit helps. Communities across the contry have began working together to help each other survive these hard times. Two Dillard, Ga women have taken it upon themselves to do their part for teenagers in neighboring counties.

Dena Carver and her sister-in-law Crystal Carver have started a program called “Fairy Prom Mothers” with the intention of making sure any boy or girl wanting to go to prom is able to do so.
