Macon Early College students Gaitry Aruwani and Emily Ritter, have been accepted to attend the 2011 Future Leaders in Healthcare Conference at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, in Pembroke, NC later this month.

The conference is for North Carolina high school students that have demonstrated interest in healthcare as a future career.

The greatest emphasis will be placed on addressing cutting edge and pressing healthcare issues.


Members of the Macon County TRU Clubs at MVI, MMS and FHS are thanking their mothers for keeping them from smoking, and for protecting them from secondhand smoke.

For many youth, Mother’s Day means taking mom out to breakfast, giving her a gift, or just saying thanks. This year some NC youth are celebrating by pledging to give moms who currently smoke the kind of loving support, encouragement and information that could help them to be tobacco- free by Mother’s Day next year.

The Wayne Proffitt Memorial Scholarship will hold its second annual barbecue dinner at the Wayne Proffitt Agricultural Center on 441 South Saturday, May 7, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Two Proffitt scholarships will be given to Macon County public school seniors whose studies have focused on agricultural education. “It’s to further the education of Macon County youth,” said event organizer Marcia Jones, who added that the amount of the scholarships are contingent upon the funds available. Last year, two $500 awards were given.
