Wednesday_,_Ma!_h 1.7 ,-_20-- 10 EDUCATION Sophomore sets shining example William Carey 4 ;'his week's Golden Apple is sponsored by the Stone County Enterprise Dayna Paslay is a young lady who can be counted on. 'Fhat dependability has resulted in the Stone High sopho- more being chosen as this week's Golden Apple. "Dayna has a great deal character, she leads by example," said Lanny Beach, who teaches world history. "Students and teachers can count on her." Suzanne Strehle teaches biology at the school and probably wishes she had several more students with Paslay's attitude toward lessons. "She always works very hard to understand the topic at hand and diligent- ly completes her work each day," Strehle said. "Dayna is always polite, kind and willing to help others." That willingness to help others extends to Paslay's church life as well. Mark Baffield, the youth pastor at First United Methodist Church, called Paslay a, "Very unique person. "She's very faithful to our youth group and always willing to help out," he said. Evewbody who speaks of Paslay eventually speaks about her work ethic. A member of the Lady 'Cats varsity soccer team, Paslay nfissed this past season when she required surge D- to repair a torn anterior crueiate ligament in her left knee. "We missed her," said coach James Pittman. "She has a tremendous work ethic, though, and I'm pos- itive she'll come back and have a positive effect on our team next season." Beach said the inju onb' served to reinforce the fact of Paslay's positive out- look. "That was a tough time for her," he said. "Even ' through the rehabilitation, she never let it get her down." Asked about the injury, suffered while playing with the Hattiesburg Football Club, Paslay essentially shrugged it off. "It happens," she said. While not sure what field she will study, Paslay plans to attend either the University of Southern Mississippi or William Carey Universi W. She said she feels called to, "Some kind of min- istD'." Barfield was not at all surprised by that state- ment. "I can see her in ministry, either as a vocation or as a missionary of some type," he said. "She loves the Lord and she's always will- ing to step out on faith." Another thing often men- tioned is PaslLv's enthusi- asm. Dayna Paslay Jaclyn Tkaczyk, a theatre and public-speaking teacher, said Paslay was extremely enthusiastic about learning. "Dayna is a pleasure to have in the classroom," she said. "She makes my job fun and rewarding." Paslay is also known as a student who will reach out to other students having difficulty understanding a lesson. "She has a way in the classroom of helping other students understand some- thing I may not have con- nected with them on," Beach said. Spring break anything but for World Changers kids each year who go and stay at a school or church, sleep on the floor, eat in the cafeteria and go out to work on roofs or siding," he said. "These kids are doing a great job." World Changers is utiliz- By Judy O'Hara Staff Writer More than 300 students between sixth-grade and college age are spending this week in Stone County trying to change the world. Tuesday morning, 46 youths from Yazoo City and Itasca, Texas worked like a colony of ants while replacing the roof on the home of Jerry Wayne Breland in Perkinston. The workers are part of World Changers, a min- istry of the North AmeffMt*gsi6rg Brard based in Atlanta, Ga., which is in its 2oth year of sharing the kwe of Christ through acts of kindness. L.C.

Someday, these words of friendship and peace might greet beings from another world! But, how? In 1977, the United States launched two unmanned spacecraft, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. They explored Jupiter and Saturn. Voyager 2 also explored Uranus and Neptune. - Both spacecraft kept going, farther and farther from the Sun. Now, after 32 years, the Voyagers have finally reached the edge of our solar system. That is where the solar wind meets the interstellar wind. "llae solar wind is the blast of particles from our own star, the Sun. The interstel- lar wind is the blast of par- tides from other suns-or stars. At that boundary, the Voyagers will become the first interstellar travelers from Earth--or maybe from anywhere. No one knows. No one knows whether life exists anywhere else but Earth. No one knows whether any alien life forms might be intelligent. No one knows whether any other beings might have space travel. But, what if the answer to all these questions is yes? And what if one of them found Voyager 1 or 2? Just in case aliens might find the Voyagers some- day, their builders wanted them to carry a message from Earth. They wanted to show and tell who we are, how we live, and what we have done. They want- ed to send a message any- one could understand. They made a golden record with sounds and images of Earth. They used thetanggsaf science and math to record other precise information about our world. "lqaey put one copy of the record on each Voyager raft--just in case. We will probably never know whether anyone finds and plays our golden record. But isn't it fun to imagine what that scene might be like? Would you like to hear some of the sounds and see some of the pictures car- ded on the golden records? Visit / en /ki ds/voyager. This article was written by Diane K.
