Schools help fill week of good news

Published 12:02 am Monday, August 14, 2017

As more local children make their way back into classrooms and area high school football teams prepare for the first games of the season, let us look at some of the good things that happened in the Miss-Lou last week:

4 A group of local Boy Scouts from Troop 158 learned about leadership in the New Mexico mountains Led by scout leaders Dr. Ed Daly and Forrest Johnson, the scouts spent 12 days, exploring the Sangre de Christo mountains. The scouts hiked 100 miles along trails that reached 12,000 feet in elevation. The scouts who went on the trip said the trip was challenging but well worth it.

4 The Natchez Fire Department received a donation of six televisions by Magnolia Bluffs Casino and Hotel. The televisions were part of $90,000 in donations that will go toward providing couches, refrigerators stoves and new mattresses to the city’s fire stations. Thanks to all who contributed to this worthwhile effort.

4 More local schools welcomed students back to the classroom for another year of learning. Adams County Christian School, Trinity Episcopal Day School, Holy Family Early Learning Center, the Natchez-Adams School District and the Concordia Parish School District re-opened their doors last week. Cathedral School started classes the week prior. By the end of the week all of the area’s school except Delta Charter School, which starts on Aug. 24, were back in session. Students and teachers were busy learning new names and new rules in preparation for another good year. May this year be an exciting one filled with success for all area students and teachers.

Let us remember to thank those who continue to make our community great.
