Keeping up with Greenville happenings

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, July 25, 2001

For the last three weeks, the Greenville Advocate and the Butler County News have been fortunate to work with two interns from the School-to-Career program. The two Butler County teachers who chose the newspapers as their work site were Susan Andrews of McKenzie High School and Leah Salter of Georgiana High School.

Both teachers worked hard for the papers and produced stories and story ideas that the staff may not have heard about otherwise. Both were excited to have a chance to go from school-to-career, and both Leah and Susan as well as their students and the newspapers will benefit from this opportunity. Thank you so much for choosing to work with the Greenville Advocate and the Butler County News. You both did an incredible job.

The Miss Camellia Pageant is quickly approaching. It is scheduled for July 14 at 7 p.m. at the Ritz Theater. This program will provide an opportunity for young women in the area to have a chance at the Miss Alabama pageant next year. In addition, a special congratulations goes out to Miss Ashley Stidham, this year's Miss Camellia, who placed in Alabama's Top Ten a couple of weeks ago and also was honored with the Virginia McDorman Community Service Award for her work concerning alcohol awareness. Stidham has done an excellent job of representing Greenville, Butler County and Alabama. Good luck to you in all your future endeavors.
