Madison County High School welcomes Sanford
BY LORI MOON AND LEANNAH HAMANN
Please welcome the new addition to the faculty - Mrs. Amy Sanford. Sanford now teaches English and says she enjoys it immensely. She feels it is a worthwhile job and it gives her an opportunity to help students realize and live up to their potential.
Mrs. Sanford received a B.A. in English at Mercer University after attending high school in Stephens County. Even though she is now working toward a master's degree at the University of Georgia, she still finds time to do the things she loves, like traveling, reading, gardening and visiting with family and friends.
She resides in Athens with her husband of eight years, Jeff, who works for the Business Outreach Services department at UGA.
When asked why she thought education was significant, she commented, "It's important for students to learn to think critically and independently...and for them to learn responsibly."
We know that she will do the best she can to help her students. Welcome to our school, Mrs. Sanford!
has his priorities in order
BY LEE ALLEN
Josh Chandler is 17 years old but has the mature responsibilities of a young man. He balances his schedule, which consists of many school and non-school related activities.
Josh is involved with all the functions that go on at his church and helps run the family business of farming and developing.
While all this is happening, he also finds time to be in Student Council, FCA and basketball. He also keeps a 94 average, good enough for a rank of 17th in a senior class of 237.
But even among all this commotion, he always makes sure he sees his friends. Riding ATVs in the mud on weekends or fishing, it is all in good fun.
All high schoolers could learn from Josh's skill of balancing a schedule to get everything in that needs to be done.
If everyone could have their priorities in order like Josh, a lot more would be accomplished.
