The MATHCOUNTS competition for the MS Gulf Coast district was held on February 12th at USM in Long Beach.
MSP was the only school that had two students place in the top 10 (out of well over 150 students)! These students were Christian C. and Micah D. Micah was called first for the Countdown Round and beat 5 other competitors. Due to time constraints, sudden victory was called, and the 6th competitor beat him. Christian C. then battled that competitor and Christian won. Christian came in 3rd place for the individual category and will be competing in the State MATHCOUNTS competition next month.
All ten competitors from MSP scored a high rank in comparison to the other competitors. Congratulations, guys and girls!

On January 15, 2016, TLC was opened in prayer. Then the Officers talked about the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
TLC is asking the student body and the community to collect change to help find a cure for blood cancer patients during the month of February. During the drive, students will learn about service and leadership. Philippians 2:3 states, "Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility. Count others more significant than yourselves."
TLC wants to make a difference by collecting change and raising awareness to help people with by blood cancers. In the 1960's the survival rate for the most common form of childhood leukemia was 3%. Today it is approximately 90% thanks to many research advances funded by LLS.
With the help of programs like this one, LLS has invested more than $1 billion in research to advance therapies that save lives. That includes more than $590,779 from Mississippi and Louisiana.
If you have any questions please see a TLC Officer or come to MSP to obtain a coin box so you can collect change at the house.

TLC was proud to host Mrs. Alicia Kimball, Youth Pastor's Wife, at Bethal Baptist Church.
On January 8th, Mrs. Kimball shared a video and related the video to "Who is your leader?". She told the students, "Jesus said follow me. Are you following Jesus?" She left them with the challenge to follow Jesus and not society.
TLC would like to offer a special thanks to Mrs. Kimball for taking time out of her busy schedule to be with us.
