We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for the hard work of a few Macon County residents.
Last week, Derek Roland, Franklin Planner, spoke at Rosman High School (Transylvania County) about the dangers of drinking and driving. The loss of his brother has certainly affected him and his family, but Mr. Roland is turning that loss into positive action by warning others of the consequences of a negative decision. It is not easy for just anyone to relate to and impact teenagers, but he made an impression on our student body. Evident by the tears and comments afterward, many students and teachers commented they felt they knew Parker Mathis personally.
