Plenty of good news to share from Miss-Lou

A week filled with Father’s Day celebrations, dreams coming true and hopes of gold medals has come and gone.

But before we prepare for the week ahead, let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from last week:

• The Cupit family of Vidalia spent this Father’s Day especially thankful of Guy Cupit, a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army who recently returned from a tour stationed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The family had adjusted to life without Guy, but was excited to welcome him home after 329 days away from the area. We thank Guy for his service, and we’re glad to see he received a warm welcome from his family.

• The North Natchez High School class of 1989 relived an important memory for every high school student — graduation. Rain on the night of graduation in 1989 brought the ceremony to a screeching halt with some of the students not able to receive their diplomas. Class members organized a ceremony near the 25th anniversary of the original graduation. We’re happy to see the class get to complete that memory.

• Six local athletes will be among nearly 3,500 competing in the 2014 Special Olympics USA National Games. Athletes from Adams, Franklin, Jefferson, Wilkinson and Amite counties are in New Jersey to compete in 14 Olympic-style sports. We’re proud of those athletes going to represent our area, and we wish them the best of luck.

Those were only a few of the many great things that happened in our community last week, and we hope to have even more to share with you next week.
