NHS camp one of multiple bright spots

The days are long, and the heat is strong — but the Miss-Lou is as busy as ever. Last week boasted some great news. Let’s take a moment to call out a few of the highlights:

Natchez High School opened its doors last week for a special summer math camp. Rising 9th through 12th grade students hit the books and learned how to use math in a real-world context. We thank NHS administrators for hosting the camp, as it will give students a great advantage in their education.

Natchez City Planner Frankie Legaux recently resigned, but the city didn’t miss a beat with filling her shoes. Natchez Mayor Butch Brown appointed Assistant City Planner Rico Giani interim city planner last week, with the intent to name him the official city planner soon.

The Natchez Lions Club gave out five scholarships, totaling $500 each, to five local high school students Tuesday. We commend local Lions Club members for investing in our youth, and encouraging them to pursue bright futures.

As we pave the way for another productive week, we thank all who work tirelessly to improve the Miss-Lou.
