Sense of giving shown in Miss-Lou

From parents who honored their daughter’s memory with a generous donation to a volunteer firefighter who gives her time to various local organizations, last week was all about highlighting people doing great things in our community.

Before you start planning the week ahead, let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from last week:

Carly Elizabeth Hughes became instantly passionate about Holy Family Early Learning Center during a trip to the school with Boston College. After Hughes lost her battle with cancer in February, her mother, Irene Vouvalides, donated $15,000 to the school in her daughter’s honor. We wish Hughes’ family the best as they continue to honor her life.

Morgan Mizell volunteers her time with the Foster Mound Volunteer Fire Department, Adams County Search and Rescue team, Adams County Sheriff’s Office and Natchez Little Theatre. Even with her time stretched thin, Mizell still seeks out more ways to get involved and give back to her community. We thank Mizell for all her volunteer work.

Boy Scouts of America Troop 158 traveled to the Johnson Space Center in Houston in August to take an extensive tour of the facility thanks to Natchez native and former scout, Lucien Junkin, who is also a senior robotics engineer. The scouts even got to drive a NASA rover prototype built to explore Mars. We’re glad to see the scouts take part in a valuable learning experience.

Owners of Fall Pilgrimage houses reported big crowds after the first week of the annual event. Sweet Auburn had 140 visitors one day, which was the single best day owner Charlotte Copeland said she had ever experienced. We welcome those pilgrimage visitors and hope they enjoy their stay in our community.

Let’s use the great news from last week as motivation to do even better things as we begin another week here in the Miss-Lou.
