Local student wins scholarship

Mahaley Jarvis, youth director at Franklin Presbyterian Church, has been awarded $1,000 from the Malissa Fielder Mowery Scholarship for the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College fall semester.

Mahaley is pursuing an associate degree in early childhood education.

She has served the church’s children and youth for two years. She organizes the Sunday school program, youth activities — including fundraising and outings — and vacation Bible school.

She and her husband, M.J., have four children: Lee, Isabelle, John and Ivan. She is the daughter of James and Linda Hopper of Salisbury and a graduate of East Rowan High School.

The scholarship was created by Malissa Mowery’s family and friends as a memorial. Malissa, who had little formal education, adopted the philosophy to  grow intellectually and encouraged others to work to better themselves as well as to promote God’s work of helping others.

The committee has granted more than $25,000 to members of the church who are seeking higher education and demonstrated leadership in the church and in the community.

The scholarship committee includes Toby Morgan, Tom Pickett, Andy Gardner, Grace Lowe, the Rev. John Elam, Bonnie Williams and Telka Weant.
