Autism Awareness Week

l

On May 2, 2014, Rachel Stevenson, a sophomore at Salmen High School, proudly presented Anne Galiano with the proceeds from the Cash for Cookies fundraiser held at Salmen during its 2nd Annual Autism Awareness Week.  From left to right are Principal Terri Wortmann, Miss Stevenson, and and Ms. Galiano, who serves as a board member for Strengthening Outcomes with Autism Resources (SOAR). SOAR is a local agency that provides support to individuals and families who are impacted by the challenges of autism spectrum disorders.  During the week, over 375 autism awareness ribbons displaying puzzle pieces were distributed and worn by the students and faculty.  In addition, each day during the week, Salmen High School’s Broadcasting Team publicized a fact about autism in America.

l

Stevenson said, “It was an extraordinary experience to have classmates share with me their stories about how their siblings, cousins, and friends battle autism each day.  April may be over, but Autism Awareness is necessary all year long.” 

Every twenty minutes, one child is diagnosed with autism in the United States.  The focus of autism awareness activities has been to educate others about the nature of autism spectrum disorders and the lack of funding for effective therapies. 

In December 2013, Miss Stevenson was crowned Miss St. Tammany Heritage’s Outstanding Teen 2014 and adopted the platform of “Shine a Light on Autism.” 
Representing St. Tammany Parish, Stevenson will compete for Miss Louisiana’s Outstanding Teen 2014 in Monroe, Louisiana on May 30-31, 2014.  

A number of students helped during the Autism Awareness Week activities.

Senior Night Honors

Thursday, the Lady Spartans hosted their senior night against Riverdale High School. Megan Brown and Cache’ Shelton were honored that night by their teammates. The two seniors were both given a ball signed by the volleyball team, and then asked to leave behind a ball with their signatures and quotes. The first game began with a cheer for the seniors and huge confidence from the Lady Spartans.

As the first game continued on with amazing serves, the Lady Spartans worked their way up to a 1-0 lead over Riverdale. The second game, the Lady Spartans came out on top again, playing very well together. Their hustle continued, and not once did they get down on themselves due to an error. Once the third game of the match started, the Lady Spartans’ light brightened even more. Their attacks from both back row and front row were key in the final win against Riverdale. As the night came to an end, there were bright smiles coming from the players and coaching staff as they recognized that the Lady Spartans just proved that they know how to win. For weeks, Coach Julianne King explained that they know how to play, but they need to learn how to win.

Winning takes confidence and teamwork…it means making an error and growing from it, not falling down. And they certainly knew what it took to win Thursday night. Not only did this win push the Lady Spartans an inch closer to hosting a play-off game, but it gave them the confidence for this week’s final game of the Lady Spartan volleyball season. Thursday’s game is in the past, and they know that they need to play not like they did Thursday night, but better. With teamwork, confidence, and belief, they will be able to remain as competition for the teams in the state.
