Tennis Pro helps DuBard Students

HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - For the month of June students at the DuBard School for Language Disorders at Southern Miss are getting a real treat, tennis lessons from the City of Hattiesburg's Camille Soulier and her team of teenage helpers.

Soulier said, "It's really neat because I don't typically ask them to help. They ask me when are we going to Dubard, so it says a lot about the juniors."

Soulier and her high school stand outs, like Harrison Livingston of Oak Grove, teach lessons at the DuBard School on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They've been doing this for several years.

"It's just fun playing with the kids and seeing how they play tennis and it's just fun talking with them," said Livingston.

The group educates students on to hold a tennis racket properly and make a good swing. They also get the whole class involved with a fun tennis game where the winner makes all perfect shots.

"I know the other day one of the teachers said, I'm so glad ya'll are here. We got so tired of hearing them asking, when are we going to play tennis? When are we going to play tennis? But they are just like normal children, they just want activity and we give it to them," said Soulier.

Officials with the DuBard School said tennis helps students improve their hand eye coordination and other important skills.
