Welcome, Samantha Santos...

We at Mid America Live always try to help whenever possible. And when we were approached by this fine young lady about an internship, we gladly brought her into the fold. Samantha (Nelson) Santos will be covering some events and providing insightful articles during her internship. In her own words, here is more about her:

“It feels as though I have danced around Butler throughout my lifetime, but somehow the prospect of living there, never before crossed my mind,” ponders a new face in town as well as in our repertoire here at Bates County Live. Born in Olathe, eldest child of Amsterdam locals Julie & John Nelson, her earliest years were spent in LaCygne, at her grandma’s shop on Butler’s square (Joy’s Hair Care), or popping around anywhere with her Grandpa Ray. She then graduated from high school in Nevada and went straight on to continue her education at Truman State University. While bouncing around there, she shuffled off to complete the Disney College Program in Kissimmee, Florida. There, she met the man that would become her husband less than 2 years later.

“My mom always warned us not to date anyone from Bates County because we would probably be related to them. I guess I was extra careful and snagged someone from the other side of the Americas.” Marine veteran and proud dual citizen, Henrique Santos (pronounced En-Hee-Khee, technically), is from a town on the Southern coast of Brazil called Itanhaém; most of his family still resides within that same state, São Paulo.

Approximately 5,500 miles straight north of that (state-state), Martin City and Overland Park would be the Santos couple’s home for the first few years. They then moved to Branson to start their family in a place with a multitude of opportunities to instill an appreciation and love of nature. However, now that they do have a child, the 3 hour distance stretched too far and they have just moved to Butler, in the midst of the Nelsons, Crafts, and Stanfills (and etc. that they call family).

Safely nestled, Samantha has seized the opportunity to complete her degree through Avila University as well as answered a call on her heart to work full-time in a special needs preschool classroom. Our internship trial at Bates County Live is a vital answer to her degree completion and an avenue through which she is excited to fulfill her passions and thirst for experience in writing, photography, editing, advertising, and especially good, old, honest journalism. Upon completion, Samm will have “finally” achieved a bachelor’s degree in communication, with a concentration in public relations and advertising.

Editor's note- your work will be greatly appreciated, and welcome aboard.

State Farm Student Athlete of the week

State Farm of Butler is proud to announce our student athlete of the week Lillian Colburn. She is a senior and plays varsity volleyball at Butler High School.

She excels on and off the court. Her athletic director Jake Duvall stated "Lillian is involved in many organizations outside of volleyball that look to lend a helping hand to others and she's often at the forefront of that. Lillian also achieves in the classroom. She always shows passion in everything she does and gives 110% while doing it".

When we asked Lilli to describe what it takes to be an elite athlete she stated "it takes being a leader on and off the court". Congratulations Lillian.
