A job well done

Posted Tuesday, March 16, 2010, at 4:56 PM

Again, I want to say congratulations to the Manila Lions on their state runner-up title. You did a great job. It has been a long time since one of our teams has made it to the finals of a state tournament.

Also, I want to offer a congratulations to the Riveside Junior High Quiz Bowl Team for earning third place in state competition. They also had a student finish third in the county spelling bee.

Recently Buffalo Island Central High School Journalism staff won several awards in the annual Journalism and Broadcasting competition at Arkansas State University. One of their band students also received high honors and a scholarship.

We had students at all of our area schools do very well at the TOPS Challege held at Arkansas Northeastern College. Some received a year's scholarhship for their efforts.

We have good schools with good teachers and great students in our area and we should be proud of them.

We should not hesitate to support them in every way we can.

Keep up the good work.
