Personal Lab Services is a committed lab team that provides many quality lab services at affordable costs. PLS can provide the doctor’s order or we can accommodate other doctor’s orders. The staff physician is licensed in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.


Southwestern Community College is holding its 21st annual Job Fair on the Jackson campus Thursday, March 26 for students, alumni and members of the community to connect with employers in the area.

“Our Job Fair is well-organized and it attracts many employers and job seekers,” said Patty Kirkley, Career Planning and Placement Counselor at Southwestern Community College.

This recruiting event is designed to provide employers with an opportunity to inform job fair participants about their organizations, personnel needs and career paths. Southwestern invites all students, alumni and community members interested in internships, co-ops, part-time and full-time positions to attend.


The State Employees Association of North Carolina will offer a total of 47 annual scholarships in 2015 for active SEANC members, their spouses and independent children.

Scholarships also will be awarded by SEANC District 1, which includes Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Swain, Jackson and Macon counties. This year a deadline has been established for the first membership dues payment to be received in the SEANC Central Office by April 15. This will be a requirement in order for the member to be in good standing.


After starting the Business Enhancement Experience (BEE) last fall, Southwestern Community College’s Small Business Center is partnering with Macon County Certified Entrepreneurial Community to resume the series in Macon County.

The seminars are held each month through May. Like all programs and services provided by the Small Business Seminars, all BEE seminars are free – but participants need to register in advance.

“Every one of these sessions is designed to help existing business owners succeed in an area where entrepreneurs often struggle,” said Tiffany Henry, director of SCC’s Small Business Center. “I am confident that every business owner in Jackson, Macon, Swain Counties and the Qualla Boundary will benefit greatly from attending these seminars.”
