Attention shines on area helpersPublished 12:05am Monday, November 25, 2013
The lights might have been shining brightly for Hollywood stars visiting Natchez on the movie sets, but we want to shine our light on some Miss-Lou residents who did great things in our community last week.
So let’s take a look back at the highlights from last week before we prepare for the week ahead:
4Vidalia Junior High School sixth-grade student Deondrais Boxley was one of many students who received the Sidney A. Murray Good Citizenship Award. The award is based on good citizenship and this year’s award is Boxley’s third. The 11-year-old student gives all the credit, however, to his parents, grandparents and God. Keep up the good work, Boxley.
4The Pink Ladies at Natchez Regional Medical Center volunteer their time to make sure each person walking through the hospital’s doors has a pleasant experience. Bernice Richardson and Genie Jones are just two of the ladies who hospital officials say are an essential part of its team. Seeing a smiling face waiting to help you is always appreciated.
4The Adams County Board of Supervisors is collecting canned goods with the goal of delivering several pickup trucks full of food to the Natchez Stewpot. The county supervisors soon will set up a pickup truck for donations at local grocery stores, and canned goods can also be dropped off at 314 State St. We hope residents show their support and help feed those less fortunate in our area.
As we look forward to a week filled with turkey and stuffing, let’s take a moment and remember the things for which we’re truly thankful this Thanksgiving.
