Excerpt from The Daily Journal:

TUPELO – The Junior Auxiliary of Tupelo hosted its annual WAVE summer camp in partnership with the Police Athletic League this week.

The summer camp is for upcoming seventh-grade boys to teach them about wisdom, attitude, virtue and enthusiasm.

Wednesday night focused on virtue, with Tupelo artist William Heard offering lessons in painting and OBGYN Dr. Ronnie Young speaking on the topic of puberty.


WAVE chairman K.C. Grist, said this is about the eighth year the camp has been in place.

“The whole week is about doing the right thing,” Grist said.

She said the kids have been very engaged and seem to enjoy the speakers.

Heard, founder of OurArtworks, said he’s been involved with the camp for a few years now.
