The Pride of Malakoff traveled to the annual Mesquite Marching Festi- val early this month and brought home a Division 1 rating. "They wanted to make a ' 1' and they went out there and got it, so props to them for working so hard to get it," Bentley told the Malakoff ISD Board of Trustees this week. "The thing I am happi- est to see improvement in so far this year is becom- ing more productive stu- dents and becoming more a part of the community," he said, "trying to reach out and find those other students and be more a part of our school." The band will be back in Mesquite Wednesday, Oct. 24, for U1L competi- tion. "I don't expect anything less than excellence," he said. Bentley is from Eustace, and is in his first year at Malakoff after three years as band director at Cayuga High School.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. (Continued from Page 1A) "There were several friends and people from church who were praying for me," she said. "During those 90 minutes alone, 1 had a composure that was surely the result of all those prayers." After the debate she learned that the father of her partner, Rita Zirnheld, had passed away unex- pectedly. "I'm just kind of reel- ing," LeDonne said. "I was worried the whole time that something like that had happened." Zirnheld is a good friend and someone LeDonne looks up to as a mentor -- she brought LeDonne m on the debate job - and she knew her father, she said. "He was an amazing person," she said. While LeDonne had been in front of large crowds before in her 18 years as a deaf interpreter, and even signed for George W. Bush prior to him becoming president, the debate was the biggest Send news tips to event she had ever worked. "It is the first time I had trouble hearing who I was interpreting because the clicking of camera shut- ters was drowning out the words," she said. "It was like that from beginning to end." But again, she leaned on her faith. "I always pray before a job like that, before, dur- ing and after even," she said. "Right before the de- bate started, at the seven- minute break, I was pray- ing non-stop By the time it all got under way, I was covered in peace." It seemed like the 90 minutes flew by to her, thankfully, but don't ask her who won the debate. Like a football referee who doesn't know the score at the end of a game, LeDonne was so fully im- mersed in the details of what she was doing that she couldn't follow the overall flow of the debate. She does know that the debate was good for Danville, where she now lives. "The whole town has been completely redone by this," she said. "Danville got a facelift; it was nice for our commu- nity." She calls Danville one of the best places for a deaf interpreter to live. It is home to the Kentucky School for the Deaf. It is also where she's overcome her greatest ob- stacle -- one that puts the debate in perspective. Last year, LeDonne bat- tled breast cancer. So in October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, she stood by herself, but not alone, on a stage in the na- tional spotlight and did what she was trained to do. It is the type of situation that makes some people wilt and makes others stronger. But that doesn't worry LeDonne, who knows where to turn for her strength.
