December 17--  A 1954 graduate of Vidalia High School is the latest recipient of the school system's "Indian Star" award.

{mosimage}The presentation was made by School Superintendent Dr. Garrett Wilcox at the December meeting of the Vidalia school board.  Dr. Lloyd Darby took as a personal mission the "Adopt A Teacher" program and encouraged others to help classroom teachers.

"He doesn't only ask this for the Vidalia city system, he asks people to find you a teacher whether its Vidalia, Toombs, Truetlen or Montgomery and show them a little support.  There's no monetary figure that makes you a supporter, he justs asks you to do what you can and allow the teachers to do what they will with the donation," Dr. Wilcox said.

Dr. Darby recounted some of his experiences growing up in the Vidalia city schools and thanked the board for the recognition.

"It's been a real trip and I really do love this school system.  Thank you very much for this particular honor," he said.
