  • Mississippi teacher sees each of her students as a gift

    The Vicksburg Post

    VICKSBURG, Miss. — Vicksburg Intermediate School teacher LouAnn Fitzgerald had two driving forces that led to her 15-year career in education.

    When she was still in school, Fitzgerald had two very different types of teachers, which served as examples for how she might one day lead a classroom of her own.

    “I had one teacher, a science teacher, who really made learning fun,” she said. “It was not just rote work and paperwork, but there were a lot of activities and experiments.”

    Once upon a time, the New Mexico Highlands University women’s track and field team was able to sneak up on opponents.

    Those days are gone.

    The Cowgirls will enter the 2016 indoor season as the No. 2 ranked team in NCAA Division II, per the U.S. Track and Cross Country Coaches Association’s preseason poll released this past week.

    The Cowgirls, coached by Bob DeVries with the assistance of Patrick Johnson and Howard Dunbar, have become a fixture in the national rankings in recent times.

  • Lopez lone North pick from LV

    A key contributor through much of her high school career, Hannah Lopez loomed especially large for the Robertson volleyball team this fall.

    Lopez’s strong play in the middle, both in terms of blocking and attacking, was a significant factor in the Lady Cardinals’ runs to a district tournament title and a postseason run that ended in the Class 4A state semifinals.

    She was one of the squad’s leaders not only in terms of tactics but in terms of emotion, firing up teammates with explosive play and well-timed contributions.
