Army Sniper: Jacob McClure, Class of '16

Jacob McClure, a 2016 graduate of Haywood Christian Academy, joined the Army in September 2017.

He said, “Joining the military for me was something I felt called to do from an early age. I joined the military because I wanted to serve my country, for the challenge and adventure, to see parts of the country I would not have otherwise gotten the chance to see, to stay out of trouble and to pay for a college education.

2014 HCA Valedictorian, Mariah then attended Pensacola Christian College and studied studio art and theatre. In 2015 she came back home to Haywood County and received training in Ceramics and Professional Clay. Mariah has now been featured in many craft shows including the Southern Highlands Craft Guild and the American Crafts Council in Atlanta (see article here).
