(Jazzlynn is off duty for the summer)
Hello, my name is Jazzlynn Hickman. I am the daughter of Jacquelyn Hickman-Hill and Martye Hickman, Sr. I am a Junior at Water Valley High School. I am 17 years old and would like to try something new for our newspaper.
I am an intern who is very interested in journalism. I enjoy photography and would like to turn my interest into a career. I participate in the yearbook staff at Water Valley High School and am also in the band.
Each week I will have a feature in the paper to appeal to the eye of my generation and what goes on in school.
WV Schools Offer Free Summer Feeding
The Water Valley School District will sponsor its annual FREE Summer Feeding Program June 2 through June 27 at the Davidson Elementary School Cafeteria. Free meals will be served to children age zero to age 18.
Child Nutrition Director Latonia Smith states that the health of our children is already in high alert. We need to provide nutritious meals to children in the community during the summer when they don’t otherwise have access to school lunch.
This program draws children into a safe environment and parents know their children are receiving free, healthy meals during the day.
“I encourage parents to allow their child/children to participate in this free summer feeding,” Smith said.
Lunch will be served daily form 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. No meals will be served before or after the allotted serving times.
Bus transportation will be provided for children who live in the city limits. Pick-up locations can be requested by contacting Latonia Smith at (662) 473-1203.
Adult supervision is required for all children. In accordance with Federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discrimination on any basis.
