SMCC Announces Spring 2015 Graduates And Honor Rolls Matt Calhoun, Registrar at SMCC, has released the honor rolls and list of grad- uates .for the Spring 22)15 semester. .... :., .The .-President +. List, which honors students car- rying at least fifteen hours with a 4.0 grade point aver- age, includes by hometown the following students: CENTREVILLE -- Victo- ria Anderson Brown, Lee A. Bryant and Alana Kathleen Jackson CROSBY -- Corley E. Longmire GLOSTER -- Katelyn S. Bateaste, Laramie E. Calli- han, Aurora Diaz LIBERTY -- Freida J. Dardar and Jeffrey L. Mor- gan The Dean's List, which honors students carrying Johnson Releases... Continued from Page 1) We will bring back the marching and concert bands, choral and instrumental mu- sic. We will work to organize a show choir which will include creative dance, singing and public speaking. Our students will be motivated to display their God given talents. ATHLETICS We will bring back base- ball for boys, soRball for girls, and tennis for beth sexes, and we will take a strong look at soccer and volleyball. We will upgrade the Jackie Robinson baseball field and the Wordy: Hicks football field. We will upgrade the restroom facili- ties for the home crowd and install restroom facilities or provide portable toilets for the visitors, which will keep them from having to walk a good distance and will help maintain crowd control. A concession stand will be made available for visitors. We will upgrade all dressing rooms and the weight room. We will beef up our coaching staff and provide medical personnel for athletes who may get injured during football games. In addition to my triple A's plan, We will bring back the summer lunch, remediarion and recreation program which will provide some meaningful activities for our children. We will upgrade our transporta- tion system because the life expectancy of a school bus is ten years and we currently have some buses in the dis- tricfs fleet that are twenty- five years old, and some are running up and down the reads daily. Appredmately ten or more of the buses in our current fleet were pur- chased prior to 1998. We will provide better buses for our athletes to travel to games that are away from campus. At one time, we had one of the best transportation systems in the State of Mississippi, and we were successful in getting the State Legislature to pass a local and private bill to allow us to transfer $100,000.00 out of our state funded Transportation Fund into our local District Main- tenance Fund which enabled us to bring about many im- provements. We will upgrade our playground equipment at all schools because most of what we have now is obsolete, old) oak trees hacked up and now an ugly stump in front of the gymnasium. Two trees located by the WCES admin- istration building as well as most of the shrubbery along the fence row in front of the school has suffered the same fate. We need to know why the beauty of our campus is being destroyed and at what cost? We will repair all leaky roofs, heating and air con- dition units and make sure doors are not chained in order to keep them locked. Some of our students will be given the opportunity to serve as pages in the Mis- sissippi State Legislature as well as attend the National Youth Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C., if they so desire. Money is available for the projects that I am proposing. However, the money that we currently have is not being managed properly for the benefit of our students. I re- ceived national recognition in 1991 when a news article was written by Marilee C. Rist, a senior editor of the Execu- rive Educator, rifled 'T)OING MORE WITH LESS IN MISSISSIPPI." The article tells how we managed our school district funds dunng my more than two decades as Superintendent of Education. We will write proposals to ob- tain additional federal, state and private funds to provide services for our students. To those students who recently graduated from WCHS, I am sorry that you did not get the chance to par- ticipate in a band, choir, base- ball, soRball, tennis and other sports or activities. I encourage you, the vot- ers and citizens, to visit our schools and see for yourselves what is taking place with our buildings and grounds. Please, don't just take my word because one picture is better than a thousand words. A vote for Johnson is a positive investment in qual- ity education for all children, because we are striving for excellence in academics, the arts, athletics and more. I have the education and over three decades of experi- ence to help lead our school system forward and in the right direction, so on August 4, 2015, please go to the and we will re-beautify all of polls and vote and sup- 'our cam u. ff yow  pot!'€-Charles E.: Johnson iwere to tkfopdmt of Ed County High School cam- ucation. pus, you would see one of Thank You Kindly, our once beautiful (50+ years Charles E.
