There are several dates for Millsap parents and students to remember including Aug. 12. Beginning at 9 a.m. Middle school and high school students can pick up their schedules. New middle school students can also register on Aug. 12 and high school students can conduct the business of paying various school fees. Aug. 16 is freshmen and new student orientation beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the high school.

In sad news, local parents Bryan and Stormie Cameron lost their newborn son at birth. Logan Scott Cameron was born July 30 and was laid to rest at Fairview Cemetery on Aug. 3. He is survived by a large extended family, many from the Millsap area, including great-grandparents Ed and Millie Cameron. Sympathy to this young couple and the whole family on their loss.
One Millsap alum is currently at the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot in San Diego, Calif., taking basic training. Jonathan Cribbs left to officially begin his military career as a Marine on Aug. 5 and will be at the San Diego location for 13 weeks. He is the son of proud parents John and Stephanie Brents. This is a very intensive time for the recruits and we wish Jonathan well in this endeavor.
