Of ucation Little Cheerleaders by Liz Bates I wish every teacher could be lucky enough to have a pro- teacher to help at the begin- lug of the school year, Mrs. Diane Stevenson said whom asked whether pre-teacber Miss Sherry Woodham had ben much help the last two weeks. Miss Woodham spent the first two weeks of school work- ing with Mrs. Stevenson as a part of her education coursesat Auburn University, where slU is a senior majoring in Early Childhood Education. She hu been assisting with the students in the second grade class at W. S. Harlan School in Lockhart. This experience was not new for Miss Wood- since she had worked first grade class Ill . t ~l~t~e year. But during she only worked wlth .I10 child for one bemr per day. At Lockhart, she hall been helping Mrs. Stevensol wherever she was needed md working with children who are having special problems and with the reading groups for the entire school day. Mrs. Stevenson, a veterao~ 12 years in the classroom, said that both she and the ~- dents would miss Miss Wood- ham. Friday marked the eml of Miss Woodham's stay writ the second grade. For Miss Woodham bothtll~ experience and the experien˘~ gained teaching in Auburn, haw taught her much. For example, she said that a teacher can al- ways tell which students are having problems at home be- cause they are the ones that can't seem to dotheirwork and cause problems in the class. (A fact experience teachers have long recognized.) Miss Woodham, who now has five more quarters at Auburn, will be qualified to teach Kin- dergarten through the third grade when she graduates. This is a special program designed to prepare teachers to work with the lower elementary gra- des. She hopes to be a kinder- garten teacher. Before getting into Early Childhood Education, Miss Woodham was studying Family and Child Development in the ~orkin~ frith A Student Home Economics Department at Auburn. But that field of study did not hold much future without graduate school, Miss Woodham said. For Miss Woodham, when she graduates, things will be a little bit different than they were for her instructor Mrs• Stevenson. For Mrs. Steven- son began teaching at Florala City School in the middleofthe year when there were 40 inthe second grade. Now at Lockhart, the class- es are smaller in the begin- ning grades. She has 25 stu- dents this year. Lockhart is also an accredited school now ,ith the State of Alabama. The staff and teachers at W. S. Harlan are very proud of this fact, Mrs. Stevenson said. So, for Miss Woodham ano- ther part of her continuing edu- cation is over. She will return to Auburn on September 25 to start fall quarter. For Mrs. Stevenson and her second gra- ders, it is barely the begin- ning of a long school year. Miss Woodham is thedaugh- ler of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Woodham of ~ lorala.

Colson, described by Time Magazine as "tough, wily, nasty, and tenaciously loyal to Richard", at the peak of a brilliant law career be- came one of the President's closest confidants. In the midst of the Water- gate scandals came the De- cember 1973 headline. "Col- son makes decision for Christ." The story jarred Washington. Then came his surprising plea of "guilty" fol- lowed by long months in federal prison with hardened criminals and even a threat on his life. It soon became apparent that something real had happened to Colson. The cool, calcula- ting "tough guy" had become a loving, compassionate ser- vant of the Savior. The story of Colson's con- version and subsequent com- plete change of character and his new found task in life will be a film you will not soon for- get. The public is invited to see this film at First Baptist Church, Sunday night, Setpem- Church, Sunday night, Septem- ber 19th at 7:00 evening ser- vice.
