Friday Feature- Adoption in North Carolina

Nov 30, 2016

November is National Adoption Month, which was a great time for WNCW's Friday Feature Interview of the Week to feature the Children's Home Society of North Carolina.  Alex Kelly, Area Director of Business Development and Advocacy for the society in Western NC discussed child welfare statistics for the state and the process of adopting a child. The original air date for this interview was November 25, 2016.

Managing Partner of the Tryon Equestrian Center, Mark Bellissimo sat down with WNCW for this Friday Feature Interview of the Week to share the huge news that the FEI World Equestrian Games had selected the center to host its event in 2018. This means an economic impact for the region that will blow you away.  Get all the details by listening to the audio link below from this November 11, 2016 broadcast.

WNCW was impressed by the outreach of groups and residents in Western North Carolina that are reaching out  in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in their fight against a Dakota Access Pipeline being constructed on sacred land in North Dakota.  Tribe's call it a stand for history, the environment, and human rights.  Groups mentioned from Western NC in this segment that have been acting in support are the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, the City of Asheville, UNC Asheville and the group "Asheville to Standing Rock".  Group member Tark Zee was our Friday Feature Interview of the Week

     WNCW featured Brother Wolf Animal Rescue and the Appalachian Wildlife Refuge during this edition of The Friday Feature Interview of the Week from October 28, 2016. This segment dedicated to Pets and Wildlife in Western North Carolina was a time to learn about these two non-profit groups, who were also celebrating Halloween with fund-raising events.
