May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.
According to cff.org in people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, sticky buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage, and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients
Cystic fibrosis recently claimed the life of Amberly Knowles, the daughter of Mrs. Rhonda Knowles, our upper elementary and junior high librarian. Amberly graduated from Nettleton High in 2010. She was an honor roll student and a member of the 2010 Hall of Fame.
Amberly was my daughter, Holly Schlicht’s best friend. They met before they began kindergarten through the friendship of their brothers. When they were growing up, if you saw one, you saw the other. I prayed for my daughter to have a best friend like I did, and God blessed us with Amberly.
My family will miss Amberly very much. We will always cherish the memories that we made with Amberly.
Please support the cause for the fight to find the cure for this dreadful disease. You can find more information at http://www.cff.org.
On April 11, 2018, our school participated in the annual Special Olympics held at Tupelo High School. The Special Olympics provides a day where students with intellectual and physical disabilities can come together and participate in various sports and activities. The Special Olympics is an event that is held nationwide at different schools, but luckily, Tupelo High has hosted it in our area for years. Although this is an annual event, this was Nettleton’s first time attending it in quite a while!
Our school was able to take students from all grades to participate in this special event. The day started with an opening ceremony. All of the different schools in our area walked in a parade led by someone carrying the torch. During the parade, people in the crowd were cheering the students on and waving, so the students loved it! All day, our students went to various activities and competed against students from other schools. Some of these activities were soccer, racing, throwing, etc..
This was a very special day because it was the Special Olympics! The students loved this event and competing in these events. We are beyond grateful that our area values these children and provides them with an opportunity to come together with other schools and just have fun!
As a junior going into my senior year, I have been researching various majors that would best suit me. One of the majors I came across was psychology. I recently completed a general psychology course and loved every minute of it. It helped me realize what I want to do when I get older.
The main reason I love psychology so much is all of the various topics that come with it. There is a series of different things you can learn from this particular field. You can study mental disorders, personality disorders, and many other psychological aspects that are a major factor in who a person may be. My favorite study is psychotic disorders.
A brief explanation of the term is a group of serious illnesses that affect the mind. Many different factors can trigger someone into a psychotic state, but it all depends on what type of disorder they have. Schizophrenia is more of a genetic type disorder, but then you have more event related complications. For example, a death in someones family can trigger a sudden psychotic episode and that said person would most likely be hospitalized if the symptoms were too severe.
This particular field of study is quite interesting to me. I could talk about it for a long time, but I know it is not for everyone. I just hope somehow everyone finds something they enjoy in the end.
