Here are the top stories in Mooresville today:

  1. The City of Mooresville (MYC) Youth Council is seeking a local artist to create a design to be painted on a steel butterfly bench to be installed in Liberty Park. In an effort to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health, MYC creates a bench where individuals can find calm and strength. The Bank will present mental health awareness in a distinctive form, while being inclusive and free of elements that could be viewed as offensive. The artist chosen to paint the bench will receive $500 for the time they spent designing and painting the bench. This artist call is open to emerging and professional artists, both working independently and/or with a team, in Iredell County, North Carolina. This can be anyone, from students to experienced artists. It is recommended that applicants have experience working with paint. Application requirements include; an expression of interest (no more than 300 words | PDF format), images of previous work (optional but recommended), a description of the project idea for the Liberty Park Mental Health Awareness Bench including art design (no more than 600 words and must include at least one drawing/sketch of each surface of the bench at: front, back and seat in PDF format). The closing date for entries is April 5 at 5 p.m. All application requirements must be submitted at once by emailing Jane Crosby, Counselor to the MYC at jcrosby@mooresvillenc.gov. The selection panel consists of all submissions, which will be reviewed by the MYC Board of Directors. Voting will take place on April 11th. The announcement of the selected artist will be made on April 14th, the painting period from April 17th to May 31st. (City of Mooresville)
  2. CAlong with her canine partner Tito, Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Jaime Welborn was promoted to Deputy for Youth Program Education and Canine Handler. The duo are now tasked with bringing the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office of Youth Education mobile classroom to the community and school in the area to provide information on prescription and illegal drugs, gang activity and technology safety. Congratulations Jaime! Say hello if you see her and Tito out and about! (Mooresville Tribune)
  3. Do you have extra, important documents like medical records, tax forms, personal information bills, bank statements, and credit card statements piling up because you don’t know what to do with them? All of this and more should be shredded to protect your identity! You can do this at the Mooresville Police Department (2847 Charlotte Highway) on April 15th. The annual shredding event takes place from 9am to 12pm in the police department parking lot. See you there! (Mooresville Police Department via Facebook)
