Georgia Northwestern has made plenty of headlines over the past two years on the junior college level. The Lady Bobcats are back-to-back NJCAA Region XVII champions and looking for a third as region play begins in January.

However, as head coach Jim Williams looks at priorities for this possible three-peat season, he is clear on what’s near the top of the list.

“Reaching out to our schools and our communities,” he said.

Prior to a shoot-around session before a recent home game against Cleveland State (Tenn.), the Lady Cats visited the kindergartners in at Mrs. Evans’ class at Main Elementary in Rome.

“They talked to the kids about their priorities and how they can plan to do what’s right in their own classroom,” said Williams of the “Big Cats/Little Cats” initiative.

“We are simply wanting to do our part by reaching out and sharing with our communities,” the coach continued. “What’s important here is the mentoring, role-modeling, and achievement work we hope to do with all the kindergarteners, first-graders, and second-graders at this school.”

Lady Cats Charron Woodley, Brecia Hall, Kiarra Parks, Tiana Jones, Alyssa Nichelson, and Alisha Bridges made the trip to the school for the event.

“We have more things we are attempting to do in the near future,” Williams added. “We want to prioritize this season very carefully. Taking care of schools and our communities is a huge priority for this team.”

Floyd EMA: Are you prepared for winter weather?

While many consider the snow and ice that accompanies the winter season to be scenic, people can forget that winter weather has the potential to devastate communities and affect thousands of people. Snow and ice can disrupt transportation and cause power outages, making it important for Floyd residents to be prepared. Floyd Co. EMA and the Georgia Emergency Management Agency/Homeland Security’s Ready Georgia campaign is urging Floyd residents to take time to get ready for potentially disastrous weather emergencies this winter.
