William “Mo” Cowan has “rich and positive” memories of growing up in southern Yadkinville and attending Forbush High School in East Bend, and he also remembers seeing Ku Klux Klan members passing out literature and marching at his school over an interracial couple dating.
“I hope those recollections don’t cast a shadow on Yadkin County,” Cowan said.
