Here are some of the happenings at DeSoto schools.
A player signed to extend her playing career. Briauna “BB” Bussey had been an anchor for a North DeSoto girls basketball team who has seen their share of challenges. She has worked hard and dedicated so much time to getting better and it has paid off. She has a chance to continue her basketball career and advance her academic goals of being a physician, mostly for free, and we couldn’t be prouder of her! Bussey is going to Mt. Mary University in Arkansas.
A group of Second graders came to the library from Mansfield Elementary school.
We had a good time looking forward to seeing them again.
NDHS was excited to have Mr. Corley, Ms. West and visitors from the state department to highlight the work with DeSoto’s Dove program or Special Education department. Our students demonstrated their work, shared their stories of class work and cooked and served lunch. It was a great visit.
DeSoto Schools has named their Teachers of the year. The Elementary teacher selected is Miranda Blount from Logansport High. Middle School teacher is Jasmine Taylor of Mansfield Middle School. And the high school teacher of the year is Emilie King at North Desoto High.
At North DeSoto Middle School last week, Mr. Corley had an opportunity to visit the NDMS News Crew.
