Above, Minden High School Principal Morris Busby and his daughter, freshman Ashley Busby, work to bring the school year to a successful close on Wednesday, the last day of school for students.
...While Minden High Principal Morris Busby pointed out that the days of the old 'three-month' summers are gone for his and many other schools across the nation, three Minden High students were on hand at Busby's office Wednesday, pumped about the approximately two and half months they are getting.
...Proving the apple really doesn't fall too far from the proverbial tree, Ashley Busby, 14, the daughter of Minden High Principal Morris Busby was hard at work helping out in the office as the school year was about to come to a close on Wednesday.
dad was right there to second his
daughter's sentiment, "The family's going to get away from Minden some this summer," said Busby
."My wife [Connie Busby] knows if I stay in town, even if I'm on vacation, I'll still work, so we're going to leave town for awhile."
"Myself and Mary King, principal of Springhill High, are the only two 12-month principals in the Parish," began Busby
, "so we don't get the actual two month summer that the other principals get, but we are able to squeeze in a little vacation time during the summer."
During the first two weeks of summer, while his
daughters will be away at camps, Busby
will be attending workshops.
"After my workshops, my wife and I will go up to the camp and spend some time with the girls," said Busby
."We'll get some spiritual refreshing, that's important."
