No shortage of good news in Miss-Lou

The end of Spring Pilgrimage last week didn’t mean the end of good news in our community.

Let’s take a look at some of the highlights of the week before we prepare for the week ahead:

• Karren Ewing received statewide recognition for her work as the victim’s assistance coordinator at the Adams County Sheriff’s Office. Ewing’s own experiences with loss and assault have helped her respond to the victims she helps.

• Students at Holy Family Early Learning Center have some new playground equipment to enjoy thanks to New Jersey-based Carly’s Kids Foundation, a foundation started by the parents of a Boston College student who visited Natchez several times on service trips before losing her battle to cancer last year. The foundation donated the equipment, which members of the Knights of Peter Claver helped assemble. We thank both organizations for helping our local children.

• Adams County Christian School fourth grader Brooke Collier will compete today in a statewide spelling bee in Jackson after having won the school and district spelling bees. The 9-year-old student has the opportunity to advance to the nationwide competition in Washington, D.C., with a victory today. We wish Collier all the best in her competition and thank her for representing our community on the state level.

Easter is just around the corner, so let’s keep the good news coming as we begin another week here in the Miss-Lou.
