Students whose names are followed by an asterisk earned recognition as members of the President’s Honor List. That distinction signifies achievement of at least a 3.8 academic grade point average on a minimum of nine semester hours completed (100-level or higher), with no grade lower than a B.

To be eligible for the Dean’s Honor Lists, a student is required to earn at least a 3.5 academic grade point average with no grade lower than a C on a minimum of nine semester hours completed (100-level or higher).

Courses yielding satisfactory/failure grades and courses audited do not count toward eligibility for either recognition. Only undergraduates with no incomplete grades are eligible to make either list.

Area honor students listed by hometowns are as follows: Carriere, Benjamin Patrick McGilton.

Benefit held for cancer fighter, Licciardi child

Donations needed

Donations are needed for the Kerne family of Poplarville who lost their home in a March 10 fire near here that seriously injured Errol Kerne, Sr.

Originally from Chalmette, La., Errol and Bonny Kerne moved to the Poplarville area after losing their Chalmette home during hurricane Katrina. Here they made a new start with their two adopted children, Errol Jr., 7, and Joshua, 1-1/2.

Because of the loss of Bonny’s job after hurricane Katrina the family has been unable to afford health insurance. Errol was self-employed prior to the fire but is currently in serious condition at the Burn Center in Birmingham. Ala., from burns received in the home fire.

Friends say with no income and no health insurance, any and all donations are desperately needed to cover living expenses and the expected high medical costs.

Donations can be made in the name of Errol D. Kerne at First National Bank of Poplarville, 1720 South Main St., Poplarville, MS 39470, Attention: Becky Saisan.

If there are any questions, call Terry at 601-795-2691 or 601-365-9340; Stephanie at 601-795-4888 or 601-795-7621; or Nicole at 601-264-7816 or 601-365-9569.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and assistance. Please keep the entire family in your prayers.

Medical Expense Account
