Franklin Presbyterian awards scholarships

SALISBURY — Mahaley Jarvis, Sophia Smith and Kelly Smith, members of Franklin Presbyterian Church, are recipients of $1,000 each from the Malissa Fielder Mowery Education Scholarship fund as they pursue undergraduate degrees. The scholarships are given in memory of Mrs. Mowery who loved learning and serving others. The intent of the scholarships is to encourage the recipients to strive toward a life of service through education advancement.

Mahaley, mother of four, wife of M.J. and Franklin’s youth director for three years, continues her education toward an associate in office administration degree from Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. She recently achieved an associate in early childhood education and an associate in school-age education.

Sophia Smith, a senior at Catawba College, will receive a bachelor of science in nursing. She is the recipient of several scholarships. She is daughter to Audrey Smith.

Kelly Smith, mother of two and wife of Rusty, is interested in changing careers and is therefore pursuing a bachelor of science in nursing. She served 12 years as a teacher at First United Methodist’s preschool after graduation from N.C. State University. Kelly is the daughter of Toby and Kay Morgan.

Each recipient displays outstanding attributes, including positive work ethic and devotion to faith, church, community and family. Volunteer activities include involvement in choir, sporting events, homeless shelters, blood drives, PTA, booster clubs, children’s Sunday school classes, and vacation bible school.

Winners of the scholarships demonstrate caring for others and commitment to gaining knowledge in their chosen careers. Members of Franklin Presbyterian Church are proud of the three scholarship winners. They are an inspiration to others as they advance themselves.
