Etiquette classes offered to students

From press reports

Etiquette is considered by many as an important factor for success.

With this in mind, the City of Louisville officials under Mayor Will Hill’s direction has arranged an etiquette program for all county students.

The Mississippi School of Protocol and Etiquette (MSOPE) will again offer classes for Winston County Youth at Louisville City Hall.

Registration will be August 20 from 4 to 6 p.m.

The first class is scheduled to begin on August 27. Classes are as follows: (Ages 7-124:00 – 5:30) (Teens 13-186:00 – 8:00)

The program will be 5 to 6 weeks on Monday evenings

Parent and teacher reinforcement class will be September 8, 2012, at 8:30 a.m.

Any teacher in attendance for the program will receive 1.0 CEU credits.

The program is part of the Mayor’s Youth Council and includes all schools in the county.

The Winston/Louisville Mayor’s Youth Council (MYC) was established in the Spring of 2012, and the inaugural council was established from youth (grades 9-12) who completed the class offered by the Mississippi School of Protocol and Etiquette (MSOPE).

The class helped students develop and enhance proper manners as well as table and cell phone etiquette. Etiquette is the way a person presents himself or herself to others, being comfortable and making other people around them comfortable. The program offered by MSOPE is a “pre-requisite” for any youth who may be interested in being a part of the Winston/Louisville Mayor’s Youth Council.

For more information persons may call City Hall, however officials strongly urge interested parties to attend registration on August 20.
