Pisgah student receives Bryson scholarship

Written by 

The Annie Lee Bryson Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Skylar Clark from Pisgah High School.

The scholarship provides $500 to deserving students from Jackson, Macon, Haywood and Swain counties who show an interest in traditional crafts. This year, the committee selected Clark to receive the scholarship because she demonstrated academic and artistic achievement along with community participation.  

Clark plans to study education at Appalachian State University. She enjoys quilting classes and volunteers at homeless shelters and soup kitchens. In her essay, Clark wrote, “I am so lucky to live in an area where our heritage and region has been preserved well enough so that the tradition of crafts can be passed down to younger generations.”
