District 2 School Board member Lindell Roney of Gleason is resigning before the end of his elected term, and a replacement will soon be named to finish out the remainder of his term. Fellow School Board members offered words of praise for Roney’s exemplary service to the people of his district and Weakley County.

----------------------------------------------

The membership of the Weakley County School Board is changing, following the recent resignation of some of its members. This was one of the top items for discussion at Thursday night’s meeting.

Although, it is not yet official, Beau Atkins is favored to fill the unexpired four-year term of District 2 School Board member Lindell Roney, who is resigning his post after serving 29 years on the Weakley County Board of Education. Providing Atkins’ appointment is approved by the Weakley County Commission, he will finish out the remainder of Roney’s term, which ends in 2018.

School Board Chairman Steve Vantrease said, “Lindell is a tremendous advocate for public education in Weakley County, and a delight to work with.”

Director of Weakley County Schools Randy Fraizer described Roney as “a model for other school board members to follow in serving their schools.” He said, “If you can work with teachers and principals as Lindell has, then you will have a great career on the School Board. He has been awesome to work with.”

Roney stated he decided to retire early for health reasons. Source: Editor, Dresden Enterprise.

Gleason Graduates 44 in Friday Commencement

GLEASON (May 12) — Gleason High School graduated 44 seniors during commencement exercises on Friday, May 12 in the gymnasium of the school.

As parents, friends, and other loved ones watched, the students marched into the gymnasium and took their respective seats at the floor level.

Mrs. Trice Price, principal, said the students were completing a long journey, but in many ways, it seems like it all began just yesterday. She challenged the students to remember “who you are and where you came from.” She asked them to look away and see those who supported them through their journey and their investment in them.

Price said “right is right” and for students to trust their inter-compass to avoid heading in the wrong direction. “If you search for good, you will find it. Be kind, help others, and make our world a better world.”

Class President Maycie Michelle Rollins addressed her fellow graduates and the audience by saying that the students started 13 years ago and graduation was the resolution of the journey. The graduates will now start a new chapter in their lives. Each student had played a part in their fellow graduates life’s story. She challenged her fellow graduates to not forget from where they came.

Salutatorian Savanna Blair Scarbrough said “together we did it.” She encouraged them to trust in the Lord, be present in everything they do, and celebrate the end of the high school career.

Valedictorian Lillian Claire Nichols said the Gleason community truly cares. When she moved to Gleason as a sixth grader, she was welcomed and found teachers and administrators who believe in their students. They pushed students to be the best academically and personally.

Sometimes in life, one’s biggest disappointments can be their biggest accomplishments, said Nichols. She encouraged fellow graduates to follow their dreams.

Mrs. Price said the Gleason graduates had an average score of 21.6 on their ACT, which represents the highest of any graduating class in Weakley County for 2017. Students, enrolled in dual credit classes, also accumulated 289 college credit hours.

Participating in the presentation of diplomas was Mrs. Price, principal; Lee Lawrence, assistant principal; Mr. Lindell Roney, school board member; and Jake Bynum, mayor, Weakley County. The top 10 graduates were: Lillian Claire Nichols, Savanna Blair Scarbrough, Khali Ann O’Connor, Maycie Michelle Rollins, Rachel Elizabeth Paige Hughey, Murrie Alyse Blassingame, Kelsey Dawn Borneman, Frazier Evans Wilson, Mitchell Lee Moore, and Daniel Stout Morris.

Students graduating with distinction were: Clayton Lawrence Cook, Lucas Anthony Gatewood, Steven Anthony Gray, Michael Wayne Hicks, Rachel Elizabeth Paige Hughey, Mitchell Lee Moore, Daniel Stout Morris, Lillian Claire Nichols, Khali Ann O’Connor, Maycie Michelle Rollins, Savanna Blair Scarbrough, and Frazier Evans Wilson.

GLEASON (February 3) — Jayne-Shaye Bailey a junior at Gleason High School was named Weakley County’s youth recipient of the Governor’s Volunteer Stars Award. The award recognizes the efforts of 84 volunteers statewide who strive to improve their communities through service. One youth and one adult volunteer were selected from participating counties to receive the award.

 

Nominees were judged based on the community’s need of the volunteer service performed, initiative taken to perform the service, creativity used to solve a community problem and impact of the volunteer service on the community.

 

Bailey has volunteered for six years at AseraCare and Avalon Hospice, completing over 2,000 hours of service. Her efforts included annual planning of memorial services, assisting with yearly veterans programs, wrapping Christmas gifts for patients, attending health fairs, shopping for patients and families, addressing and mailing Christmas and birthday cards and helping the nursing staff set up for new patients.

 

Bailey is a member of the First United Methodist Church in Gleason and an active member of the Methodist Youth Fellowship group. She is a member of the Gleason High School Beta Club and Fellowship of Christian Athletes leadership team. She is junior class secretary, FFA president, co-captain of the award-winning Gleason High School cheerleading squad and the winner of several pageantry titles. Despite her incredible schedule, Bailey stands out as a Weakley County volunteer.
