The Carey Scholars program is
specially designed for incoming
freshmen with a 29 ACT or higher.
To help these academically gifted
students achieve their incredible
potential, the Carey Scholars take
specially designed honors courses,
are engaged in community service
projects, participate in multiple
cultural enrichment activities, and
travel to England to learn more
about William Carey.
“The Carey Scholars Program
was extremely beneficial during
my undergraduate career at Carey,”
said WCU graduate student Chelsey
Maywalt. “The program helped me
thrive in the academic setting, while
also ensuring that I cultivated myself
through the arts and community
service. I am so grateful to have
been a part of a program that opens
doors and creates opportunities
for students to develop life and
leadership skills.”

WCU N ewspaper Receives Grant
The obbler, the newspaper of
William Carey University, recently
received a grant from the Mississippi
Press Association Education
Foundation and is looking forward to
an exciting year.
In May, Editor-in-Chief Joshua
Wilson wrote a proposal to the
foundation requesting grant money
for the purchase of new equipment.
The foundation approved a grant of
$3,000 for The Cobbler during their
annual summer convention.
This grant enables the newspaper
to purchase a new work computer
and a new digital camera with
accessories. The equipment will allow
the staff to work more efficiently and
will provide a better environment for
training new staff members.
“With this equipment, we will be
training students for years to come,”
said Wilson. “It will be an awesome
asset to our newspaper and to the
Carey community at large.”
Wilson, who has served as editor-
in-chief since February 2011, said
the newspaper plans to publish eight
editions this academic year: five print
editions and three online editions.
He said he also plans to increase the
newspaper’s social media presence
and improve the online edition by
eventually embedding audio and
video into the edition.
In addition to new equipment,
The Cobbler also has a new home.
Formerly located in the basement of
Tatum Court, the newspaper office
has moved to the second floor of
Lawrence Hall. The new location will
allow for easier production and better
scheduling of staff meetings.
“WCU is truly the place to be,”
said Wilson. “It’s a great time to be
able to cover the university’s news,
and we believe the grant money, the
new equipment, and our new office
will only improve our work.”
