We asked, "What did you do over Spring Break?" Here are some replies:
Heritage High School teacher, bride-to-be and cancer survivor Caroline Ingle won a VW Jetta while attending the OMG Cancer Summit in Las Vegas, NV. Ingle was selected from a field of thousands for Stupid Cancer's "Get Busy Living Award." She is beyond thankful to over 1,000 friends who voted for her.
Many families celebrated with a Staycation, visiting the pool at Johnson Park or other local attractions.
Young American Christian School second-grader Alexa Shoop along with her brothers, Zack and A.J. summited to the top of Stone Mountain during a spring break staycation excursion. "It was fun, good exercise and free!," she said. The trio also enjoyed wading in the campground's creek and attending Zack's Red Sox baseball practice at RYBA.
RCHS sophomore Taylor Etheridge kicked off her spring break with cheerleading tryouts last Friday - she made the JV Football Squad. "I went to Six Flags this week too, and now I'm headed to a babysitting assignment." While at Six Flags, she braved the Goliath coaster. "It was thrilling and scary all at the same time."
Edwards Middle School sixth-grader Grayson Hoffer went to Myrtle Beach, SC with her family. A fun time was had by all. One souvenir she wished she hadn't returned with was a sunburn - acquired on the last day when she forgot to apply sunscreen to her face. Her mother, Kelly Hoffer, is full of remorse, but Grayson insists, "It wasn't your fault, mom!"
