Millsap’s Heritage Society kicking off 2013 chili supper and membership drive

(Continued)

While our students will be back in classes beginning Monday congratulations are in order to the Lady Bulldogs High School volleyball players who achieved academic all-district. They are Lauren Power, Mikelyn Kruger, Melissa Jones, Sarah Mahan and Courtney Coker. Their coach said these honors are very hard to achieve, so a very hardy well done to each of these young women is in order. Congrats and thanks for making Millsap proud!

On another front here’s something that is new to the Millsap Afterschool Program, very innovative and of use to the entire community. With their school sponsor’s help students are doing what they call a “school tube newscast.” This is a monthly program available for viewing on the schools’ website. Some of the highlights of the program include interviewing a teacher, one of the students going to a local restaurant and giving a critique of the place and food and school sports news.

The program runs about 15 minutes and is absolutely one of the best things I’ve watched in a long time! Can’t wait for the next MAP Bulldog Newscast.

Adina Jobe recently suffered a fracture, and as she is recovering at home we wish her a speedy get well! Ms. Jobe, while well into her 90s, is a very involved member of many community organizations and endeavors and will be missed by many until she is able to get back to her busy schedule.

Congrats to Larry Walden on being sworn in as county commissioner for Precinct 3. I’ve been told that it has been over 20 years since a person from Millsap has held this position, so we are very proud of the new commissioner.

Thanks for reading!
