MCYA holds awards night
BY VANESSA KIRK
The Madison County Youth Association (MCYA) held an awards night Nov. 14 in the MCHS gym. The youth association awarded nearly 400 people.
Mike Haynes, a high school teacher and football coach, acted as the master of ceremonies. One hundred and ninety six players and 225 cheerleaders received participation awards. These children ranged in age from 5 to 12. The Senior Black Bulldogs were awarded, receiving trophies and medallions for their undefeated 10-0 season. This was their second straight undefeated season.
It was a special night for coach Robert Freeman as well. This was his final year as president of the MCYA, after five years of service.
The featured speaker of the evening was University of Georgia athletic director Vince Dooley. He mentioned the Red Raider football team as well as the MCYA football teams. He said he was looking forward to the continued success of the Raiders and sending his coaches out to look at the players in hopes of sending some to UGA to play.
It was a delightful evening for all who attended and an honor to have Vince Dooley speak for the MCYA awards night.

Blood drive planned at MCHS
BY TESSA HOLLIS
No one likes to think of being in a situation where they might need to receive blood, but it happens every day. Approximately four million people need blood each year, which is one person every two seconds. The only way to acquire this much needed blood is from human blood donors.
MCHS will hold its annual blood drive Thursday, Nov. 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the high school gym. Donors must be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 lbs. Donating blood is extremely safe and only takes about an hour. When you first arrive you register and take a mini physical to ensure that it's safe for you to donate. After you donate most people can immediately resume their normal activities unless they are very strenuous.
The American Red Cross needs 22,000 people to donate blood every day across the country. Please do your part and sign up to donate blood! For more information, contact Pat Rape at the high school at 795-2197.
