Potts Camp students tour Hunter Fan
By CHARLES JOHNSON
Students learned many different aspects of what goes on at Hunter Fan last week. Vanden Willey, operations manager, gave Potts Camp teachers and students a very informative tour of their facility in Byhalia.
Willey showed the students all the different items they ship out on a daily basis, such as ceiling fans, water coolers, chandeliers, table lamps and rocks. He explained that they do not sell to the public, but instead sell to large companies such as Lowes and Home Depot. They employ over 100 workers and have two other facilities in Olive Branch.
As the students toured, they saw former students of Potts Camp working there. The teachers and students seemed to be very excited about the overall experience they received at Hunter Fan. Many of the students said they would like to work there.
Charles Johnson, transitional coordinator for the county schools, would like to thank Glen Baily, manager, for allowing the teachers and students to come and Vanden Willey for taking the time out to show us around. This is the second year they have allowed us to visit their facility, and we are so grateful.
PC students Washington, D.C. bound
High school students at Potts Camp School became excited when the administration and the Marshall County School Board approved a trip to Washington, D.C. In October, the students started raising funds to help defray the cost of the trip. With the help of the Student Government, a goal was set to go to Washington in 2006.
With the help of parents, faculty and staff at the school, the students of Potts Camp School have been able to reach their goal. During spring break, students, parents and faculty will be boarding a chartered bus bound for Washington. This trip is a first for the school.
The students are proud of the opportunity to visit our nations capitol. The students appreciate the support that has been given by Jerry Martin, student government advisor; Ken Basil, principal; and Don Randolph, the MC Superintendent of Education.

Parent Information Seminar has great turn-out for first time
Holly Springs School District held its first Parent Information Seminar on Saturday, Feb. 4 at the high school. Some 300 parents came out to be informed about the ticket program (a new in-school discipline program, seventh through 12th grades designed to use positive motivation instead of negative reinforcement or punishment); the PTA; parenting tips; MCT benchmark skills/SATP blueprints that the state uses to measure student achievement and school status; National Heart Month; Families First Resource Center; special education/special needs; and reading initiatives.
Dr. Cynthia A. Gentry, superintendent, would like to thank everyone who has helped in the preparation process of getting this seminar ready, and to thank everyone who came out to make this seminar a great success: parents, community persons, school board members, administrators, teachers, central office staff, food service, custodians and maintenance. By working together as a team, we made the Parent Information Seminar a great success.
The classroom with the most parents in attendance at Primary School was Lolar Beards and Luvell Jones, first grade. This class will receive a pizza party. The classroom with the most parents in attendance at Intermediate School was Shauneille Masons, fourth grade. This class will receive a pizza party.
At the high school campus, the names of two parents who attended the seminar were drawn-one seventh and eighth grade parent and one ninth through 12th grade parent. The two students of the parents names that were drawn will get to enjoy lunch at Pizza Hut with 10 of their friends. They are: Alexius Elam, eighth grade, Tabitha Elam, parent; and Brisha Dawkins, 10th grade, Sandra Dawkins, parent.
