Students, volunteers top week

The bustling days of spring have bloomed, and our weekdays and weekends are busy now.

It’s a good busy, though, and several people and events of last week left us smiling.

Let’s review some of the good news from last week.

• Students from the Natchez-Adams School District put on shows of several sorts Saturday at the Natchez Mall. Music, band and art students showed off their stuff to crowds. We are glad our public schools are exhibiting their finest work, and we are proud of the students who attended.

• Ferriday Junior High School student T’Nia Davis has been honored as a good citizen. Davis performs well in the classroom and hopes to work in the medical field when she grows up. Best of luck T’Nia!

• Area athletes performed Friday at the Area 7 Special Olympics at Natchez High. We are proud of all those who competed and all those who volunteered to make the day special.

• Members of the Natchez Trace Kiwanis Club spent Saturday in the woods at Historic Jefferson College building a walkway on the nature trail. Club members hope area children will benefit from their work all summer long. Community projects like Saturday’s are essential to making our community a better place to live, and we thank those who put in the sweat equity.

As a new week begins, think about a way you can create a bit of good news in your community, and let’s get to work.
