Beauvoir student named state gymnastics champion
Holly Howard, a sixth grade student at Beauvoir Elementary School, recently won the first place all-around title at the state gymnastics competition in Tupelo.
She also won first place on the balance beam and second place on the uneven bars.
At the awards ceremony, Holly was recognized as the top Level 6 gymnast in the state. This was her ninth time to win the first all-around title at a competition, but it was her first time to win this title at the state meet.
A few weeks before this win, Holly competed in Panama City, Fla., and she was the second place all-around winner.
