Catch the Spirit of Appalachia weaves mountain tradition with present day life

Written by 

Catch the Spirit of Appalachia, a non-profit organization located in Jackson County, is offering three $500 scholarships for Appalachian Studies, with a focus on traditional craftsmanship, traditional music and community service.

The scholarships are open to high school seniors in Jackson, Swain, Haywood and Macon. Appalachian Studies would be a multidisciplinary major with teaching, research and service. It could include the study of music, craftsmanship, art, writing, literature, history, vocational, education, social work and human services — all with intentions of producing an understanding that is supportive of regional pride and identity of the Appalachian people.
