Published 12:01 am Tuesday, May 21, 2019

One of the most cherished moments in life is high school graduation. Like most rites of passage, graduation marks the transition from one stage of life to another.

Seniors from throughout Concordia Parish crossed the threshold into adulthood  last week as family, friends and the entire community celebrated with cheers and tears.

Congratulations to the graduates of Ferriday High School, Vidalia High School, Monterey High School and Delta Charter School for their accomplishments.

This week, seniors from the Natchez-Adams School District, Adams County Christian School and Cathedral School will embark on the same journey.

With their diplomas in hand, we wish all seniors prosperity and happiness in their next adventure in life.

Other good news from the area includes:

4The Natchez Police Department is getting ready to welcome a new K9 officer into its ranks. The local community raised approximately $7,000 to help replace the current dog, which is suffering from arthritis and cancer. The money raised will help offset the $16,620 price tag that will come with the new dog from Abbeville, Louisiana. Thanks to everyone who donated pennies and dollar bills to this worthwhile effort.

4Darrell and Lisa Day have only been in town for less than six months and they have already decided to make the town a little sweeter. The First Presbyterian music minister and his wife have decided to open an ice cream shop on Main Street. The couple closed on the building near the corner of Main and Pearl streets on May 9 and hope to turn it into both a shop and a residence. The Days plan to serve homemade ice cream and other sweets. Sounds like a sweet investments to us.

As this year’s class of 2019 walks into the future, let us always be looking for the good news happening in our community each and every day.
