Richton Elementary Jr. Beta makes the top five in group talent at Mississippi Jr. Beta Convention in Tupelo, Mississippi!
We are so proud of our 4th, 5th and 6th graders that competed against big groups of 7-8th grade teams. We placed in the top five out of 17 teams. This was our second time to go to the Jr. Beta Convention in recent years. We had students participate in many academic contests, created a scrapbook, created a banner and met many Betas from across our state. There were 3,000 students who attended the event. Special thanks to Shelly Tucker (and Mr. Tucker), Kristen Walley and Dedra Perry for all the practice and preparation. Parents were glad to attend and see their students in action. Thanks to all who helped with this event. We hope to take the RMS with us next year!
I have always wanted to be a runner. I love the atmosphere of races, love the people involved and genuinely loved being a part of the events. Until today, I only participated from the sidelines. TODAY I achieved a life-long goal of running in a race. It may sound dramatic, but it was something that is hard for me. I spend so much time taking care of everyone around me, I've found it hard to take time for myself. Andy has led a healthy lifestyle for the entire 25 years of our marriage. He swims and has ran a marathon before. I never thought I would actually do this until today. It feels great! Best of all I was surrounded by the people in my life who I love the most. We crossed the finish line together and it felt great. Funny how physical exercise can have such a positive impact on your life. We drove all night to get home and be in church, but it was well worth it. Thanks to Ben & Ashley for driving in from Nashville, Rachel for making the trip from Starkeville and especially for Druanna who rode 10 hours with her "rents" both ways!
My husband of 25 years makes his announcement to run for Mississippi House of Representatives District 87 with friends, family and loyal supporters. I could not be more proud of his willingness to serve others.
