Macon County Commissioners are moving forward with plans to transform the old Cowee School into a cultural heritage center for the community.

Last Tuesday, the Macon County Board of Commissioners approved $69,448 to be allocated over a nine and a half month period to contract with Stacy Guffey to coordinate the project and to provide additional supplies and furnishings to help get the project started.

Because of his continued dedication and involvement with the Cowee School, Guffey was hired as the coordinator for the project. The nine and a half month contract will pay Guffey $27,000, or $3,000 per month. Guffey's contract includes the business plan developed by Guffey for the old Cowee School property that designated the school as the Macon County Heritage Center.
