A Laurel Park ALTA ladies tennis team has been very busy off the courts! After their successful tennis season ended, they donated diapers to The Diaper Ride sponsored by Roswell Street Baptist Church Women’s Pregnancy Center. In November, the team volunteered at the Center For Family Resources for the annual Thanks For Giving Distribution Program. The ladies also have collected pairs of gloves and mittens for MUST Ministries.

Most recently the team enjoyed a holiday lunch at the Marietta home of teammate, Debbie Allgood. Busy team members include Allgood, Patty Banko, Martha Donovan, Anita Kirk, Kristin Lee, Carol Ann Martin, Paula McSorley, Jan Rimbey, Jo Robertson, Karey Santo, Cindi Weber, and Bea Willett.


University of Mississippi junior Rodrigo Pantoja-Navajas of Marietta plans to spend the spring semester studying in Italy. A management major in the School of Business, Pantoja-Navajas is among 139 Ole Miss students who have chosen to enrich their college experience by studying in another country during the 2012-13 academic year. The group comprises six students scheduled to study abroad both semesters, 56 for the fall semester and 77 for spring. The fall semester students are scheduled to return home around mid-December.
