Welcome to the The Key Note

Hello North Wilkesboro! 

First, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Sierra Watson, and I am the Town of North Wilkesboro's intern for the summer. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2018 with an undergraduate degree in Business Marketing and Innovation and a minor in American Studies. Upon completing undergrad, I applied to Appalachian State University to learn more about the public sector through pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Not-For-Profit Management. I quickly realized I had a passion for serving others, and I went on to receive my Master's in Public Administration in May. 

As a native of Alexander County, I empathize with the hardships Western North Carolina communities are facing. Amid COVID-19, my goal is to provide the Town of North Wilkesboro with timely general information of interest, where we round up the good, surprising, and inspiring things that have happened around North Wilkesboro's community. I’ll share these in a weekly blog to lift spirits! 

Kindness and uplifting moments are coming to light, and if you wish to hear more, please stick around. I will provide up-to-date stories about our local businesses and safe activities to engage in (other than hours of binging Netflix). I hope this blog can help us stay positive and optimistic during the challenges fate can throw our way.

No matter what you're feeling or experiencing, I hope this blog will bring you some joy!
