I got to go to the Memphis drum
shop. Its five stars, and tons of people
come from all over the country to go
there. I bought a new head for my
snare, and some moon gel to dampen it.
Its a famous drum shop, and big people
have gone there. I saw someone from
YouTube there! ROBBIE BROWN, 12,

Its a message Columbus High School
2011 graduate TORI EDWARDS took to
heart. Through the schools Community
Service Club, she says she laid the founda-
tion for not only a strong resume but also a
lifetime commitment to serving others.
On a recent afternoon, as she volun-
teered with Mississippi Lt. Gov. Phil
Bryants gubernatorial campaign, she talked
about how community service has enriched
her life. She said she particularly enjoyed
working with the Loaves & Fishes communi-
ty soup kitchen.
I really liked that, Edwards said. I was
involved in helping people instead of think-
ing about myself. Just to see the smiles on
the peoples faces made me feel great. She
said she never realized people in Columbus
went without food until she saw them lining
up for a hot meal. That made me want to
give back more to help the community, she
said.
Edwards, who plans to attend Mississippi
State University in the fall to study civil engi-
neering, said she plans to continue volun-
teering. It has become a way of life, not only
for her, but also for her friends many of
whom volunteer with her. Ill continue to do
it until Im old, Edwards said. I love giving
back. The expression on peoples
facesthey dont expect young people to go
out and volunteer, but with the economy and
people out of jobs, it gives young people
something to do to stay out of trouble.
Edwards said even the busiest student
can find at least two hours a week to volun-
teer. It really looks good on your resume
for colleges and jobs, Edwards said. You
can always make timeits not hard at all.
Some of her other volunteer activities includ-
ed working as a cashier at Baptist Memorial-
Golden Triangles gift shop and working
with children at the Youngs Christian
Academy daycare.
Cindy Wiygul, guidance counselor at
Columbus High School, said students like
Edwards are on the right track when it
comes to preparing for a bright future. A lot
of colleges are giving scholarships for com-
munity involvement and community serv-
ice, Wiygul said. All scholarships are look-
ing for volunteer community service. Its just
as large as the academic part. Wiygul sug-
gested students either try to get involved
with a school club that has a community
service component or call local organiza-
tions like United Way to inquire about volun-
teer opportunities. By CARMEN K. SISSON
Heritage Academy senior SCOTTIE
DAVIS is getting pretty comfortable around
construction sites. Working on Habitat for
Humanity houses will do that. Whether help-
ing to hang fixture boxes or putting up
columns on a front porch, the 17-year-old
doesnt hesitate to get his hands dirty.
By graduation, Heritage seniors are
required to have a minimum of 100 commu-
nity service hours. Davis endorses that pro-
gram. I think it definitely helps kids get out
there and develop the habit of volunteering,
the HA soccer player stated. Heritage
Headmaster Tommy Gunn added, We just
feel like giving back to the community is
what we want to do that needs to be who
the school is. Davis himself has already sur-
passed the 100 hour total hell need, even
before his academic senior year begins. But
that doesnt deter him.
There are a lot of people around here
that need help more than anybody can really
imagine, said the student, who worked on
the Columbus-Lowndes Habitat for
Humanity Heritage House in 2010 and cur-
rently is contributing labor at the Habitat
build on Ninth Avenue South.
His parents, Mike and Abby, are both
active in community and church. Mike Davis
was involved with the Habitat Heritage build
and now serves on the Habitat board and
heads the construction committee.
Whenever I need help, Scotties the guy
that will get on the phone and, within 10
minutes, have five of his buddies there, he
said.
Heritage teacher Rebecca Partain serves
as advisor for the annual senior class initia-
tive, which this year has been Patriot Park, a
handicapped-accessible playground now
open at the Baptist Memorial
HospitalGolden Triangle walking track.
Young Davis helped on that effort, too.
Those capstone projects, as well as the
100 community service hours, are designed
to instill philanthropy, citizenship and leader-
ship in students, Partain said.
We want to give kids opportunities to
develop their own gifts, their own talents,
she stated. Theyll then have a strong skill
set to take with them post-graduation, so

The seeds of CHRISTINA
LEMMERMANNs volunteer spirit were
planted years ago by her parents, Alan and
Pat. I think I was 11 or 12 years old, and my
whole family took part in a gleaning project,
through the Society of St. Andrew affiliated
with our church, the Caledonia High
School junior said. Wed go pick blueber-
ries and sweet potatoes, I think it was in
Noxapater, for their Helping Hands center.
Lemmermann, 16, remembers actually fol-
lowing the harvesters on occasion, going
behind them to fill beds of pickup trucks
with produce for agencies like Salvation
Army.
Its often through her church, First
Presbyterian in Columbus, that the teen
finds ways to give back to her community.
From washing and wrapping buckets des-
tined for Haiti with Operation Ukraine, to
serving meals at Loaves & Fishes soup
kitchen, she has kept busy. When you see
youre really helping people, theres just an
appreciation. And then you realize youve
had a good time doing it, she said.
The actions of some too often give
teenagers a bad rap when it comes to caring
about community, she concedes. Id defi-
nitely say teens do care, she stated, but I
do think its hard for some, because if they
havent grown up doing volunteer work and
they dont know the satisfaction you get, I
dont think it kind of clicks with them.
Thats where city, school and church
instigated programs for young people can
make a difference. One of those is the
Mayors Youth Council, which Lemmermann
serves on. That group helped serve food
and supervise the childrens play area dur-
ing Columbus Mayor Robert Smiths Unity
Picnic in April. The Council is really a com-
munity-building group, because you get to
meet people from all over the area, and you
become friends, she said.
Most recently, Lemmermann has become
a volunteer at R.I.D.E.S., the therapeutic rid-
ing center in Caledonia. There, shell work
primarily with children trying to improve
their motor skills with the aid of horseback
riding. When I grow up, I want to find some
way to always be helping others, she stated.
As a new school year begins,
Lemmermann plans to continue volunteer-
ing where she feels needed most. Shell
carry with her a fundamental lesson from
the Hugh OBrien Leadership Conference
she attended at Millsaps College in June:
To become a leader, you first must be able
to serve and follow others.
A good lesson, at any age. By JAN
SWOOPE

Its never too soon to begin thinking about your childs
college education, but with a little planning, you can allevi-
ate a lot of the financial stress.
Cindy Wiygul, guidance counselor at Columbus High
School, said she sees a lot of parents come into her office
with worries about everything from how to improve their
childs ACT scores to how to scale the financial hurdles of
higher education.
Making an appointment with your childs guidance
counselor is the first step to ensuring success, she said,
and its never too soon to begin. In fact, she encourages
parents to meet with her as early as their childs freshman
year.
You need to start earlier than senior year, thats for
sure, Wiygul said. You need to start in the ninth grade
to find out what you need to be doing.
In addition to providing informational pamphlets and
advice about college, Wiygul said she can also provide
parents with a timeline to follow, letting them know exact-
ly when their child needs to begin doing things like taking
the ACT and applying for scholarships, some of which
require specific high school activities and classroom pre-
requisites.
Come in with questions, she encouraged.
As for funding, theres a plethora of options, from fed-
eral grants to state savings programs.
Here are a few ways to take the finan-
cial bite out of higher education:
Apply for grants.
During your childs sen-
ior year, fill out the Free
Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA).
This form, available at
your local high school
guidance counselors
office, and also online
at www.fafsa.ed.gov,
will use your previous
years income to determine your childs eligibili-
ty for federal financial aid, such as Pell Grants.
Aggressively seek scholarships. Many
scholarships are available for academic and athlet-
ic achievement, but dont overlook niche scholarships.
Wiygul recommends visiting www.scholarships.com,
which offers finely-tuned search options based on grade
level, major, state, scholarship type, etc.
The site, which boasts 2.7 million local, state, and
national scholarships and grants, also provides financial
aid tips, student loan information, and other help.
Enroll in a prepaid tuition plan or any type
of savings plan.
Wiygul, a mother of twins, had high
praise for Mississippis MPACT
program, a guaranteed, state
pre-paid tuition plan which
locks in college tuition
rates on the day you
open an account.
Wiygul said she opened
MPACT accounts for her sons when they
were two years old. The boys, now 20, are
juniors at the University of Southern
Mississippi and Auburn University. She esti-
mates that the MPACT program has saved her
more than $5,000 per year.
MPACT puts the money in right before the
semester starts, Wiygul said. I dont have to call
and remind anyone. I dont have to do anything.
Many banks also offer savings plans, and Wiygul said
anything parents can do now to begin saving for college
will ease stress further down the road.
For more information about MPACT and other pre-paid
tuition options, visit www.collegesavingsmississippi.com.
