Book buddies

Jackson Academy students (back) Morgan Turner; (from left, front) Addie Elliott, Lillian Griner, and Emma Robertson will be book buddies throughout the year as the sixth-graders help the first graders develop socially and educationally. By teaching the first-graders to stack cups in a specific pattern, sixth-grade students helped them practice the difference between right and left hands.

Social

Robert H. Watson will receive Mississippi College’s Award of Excellence at the university’s 2018 homecoming.

Activities include an October 26 awards banquet at Anderson Hall.
