Accolades highlight good news

A weekend filled with beautiful weather and an abundance of activities capped begins a new week of opportunity. Before we look ahead, let us take a look at some of the achievements form last week:

  • A group of Cathedral science students came back with a state championship in the Mississippi Science Olympiad. For weeks, the high school students have been spending late nights at the school making everything from robot arms to a battery-powered hovercraft. Other students spent many hours studying facts and figure in preparation for the competition. Congratulation to the students, who now head to the national competition in Dayton, Ohio.
  • A group of Natchez-Adams School District students also excelled at the state level. The Fallin chapter of the Technology Student Association placed second in digital video production and was named a finalist in the music production competition at the TSA state conference in Tupelo. The team competed against approximately 2,000 students at the state level. The Fallin Technology students will now head to Orlando in June to compete at the national convention. Congratulations to the Fallin team for their achievements.
  • High praise is also in order for University of Southern Mississippi student Randa Morace, who was recently chosen to be a part of the musical theater program at the International Performing Arts Institute in Germany. Morace grew up acting on the Natchez Little Theatre stage and dancing in the Natchez Ballet Company. At USM she was the captain of the Dixie Darlings. Now she takes her talents to a new level in her career. Congratulations Randa.

As we enjoy the gorgeous weather this week, remember to thank those who continue to make our community great.
