VALDOSTA — THUMBS UP: To Mac Loudermilk. The Valdosta High School senior racked up several awards

earlier this week during the annual Wildcats Touchdown Club football banquet. Loudermilk won the Howard Bridges Scholastic Award, the Wright Bazemore Scholarship Award and the Special Teams Award for his successes on the gridiron this past season.

THUMBS UP: To the Morven Rosenwald Alumni Association's grand opening of the restored Barney Colored Elementary School. Comparing the grown-over and abandoned school building of about a decade ago to the beautifully refurbished building now stands as a testament to the perseverance and commitment of this organization's members to the area's history and to the community's future.

THUMBS UP: To the Georgia-Florida Challenge. The Lowndes High School-sponsored baseball

tournament continues today featuring teams from both sides of the state line. Five games are scheduled for today in the region – a must for baseball fans.
