How do I remove the far right character of the records in a column and then add it to a new column?

I have a column called STATUS in my table TBL_APP, within the STATUS column are a series of characters for each record:

APP         STATUS
118957    ACE
119654    CED
114567    ME
119872    MDA
120487    A

I would like to pull the far right character and create a new column with it, so the table would look like this:

APP         STATUS
118957    E
119654    D
114567    E
119872    A
120487    A

Any thoughts?
