Education shoutouts

Scholarship awarded

Franklin Presbyterian Church’s Youth Director, Mahaley Jarvis, received the Malissa Fielder Mowery Scholarship for the fall semester toward an associate degree in early childhood education at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. Mahaley, serving FPC’s children for a year, organizes the Sunday school program, fundraising, outings and vacation Bible school. She utilizes her creative skills to enhance planning and advertising programs. As the wife of M.J. and the mother of Lee, Isabelle, John and Ivan, she leads her family and the children at FPC in Christian growth. She is the daughter of James and Linda Hopper, here in Salisbury, and a graduate of East Rowan High School.

The scholarship serves as a memorial for Mowery by family and friends who were some of the many recipients of her care and encouragement in the church and community. Eager to grow in her own knowledge, she aggressively encouraged continuing education as a means to benefit themselves and more importantly to improve the ability to serve God, family and friends. The Rev. John Elam, Bonnie Williams, Doug Foxworth and Tom Pickett served on the committee with Chair Dr. Telka M. Weant.
