The Judy Moore Memorial Scholarship Endowment Committee is accepting scholarship applications for the 2011 year.

This scholarship program for nurses was established in 1997 as a memorial to Judy Moore, RN who was killed in a tragic car accident in 1996. A resident of Macon County, Moore was an inspiration to both nurses and patients in her role as a Community Health Nurse III and as an OB-GYN Nurse Practitioner. Since the first award in August of 1998, the scholarship has been given to 20 individuals (some have been awarded funding more than one year) and more than $19,000 has been issued.


Western Carolina University’s award-winning student newspaper has started offering subscriptions and will mail to subscribers issues of the full, print editions of the Western Carolinian, which is distributed in the WCU community.

“We have had a lot of parents routinely ask us if we offer subscriptions, and we finally got to thinking, ‘Why not?’” said Justin Caudell, the Western Carolinian’s editor-in-chief and a senior English and political science major from Cashiers. “We don’t put online everything we have in our print edition, and we also typically have special features in the newspaper that cannot be fully replicated on our website.”


Gregg Hedden, a 1990 graduate of Franklin High School, has been promoted as assistant principal at Cass Middle School in Cartersville, Ga.

He has been a counselor at Cass Middle for nine years as well as a basketball coach at Cass Middle and Cass High School.

Hedden is the son of Jim and Sue Hedden of Franklin.
