Bench Dedicated to Jimmy and Amanda Ward
A new bench has been constructed and placed at the Woolmarket Little League ballpark in Harrison County in honor of two special individuals.
Jimmy and Amanda Ward, two students at D’Iberville High School, were killed in a tragic accident on March 13, 2015. The bench dedicated to the siblings is located in the center of the ballpark where they grew up playing sports and where they enjoyed spending time the most. James was known by his friends as “The legend” and when Amanda hit the field, friends called her “Bulldog.”
Amy Ward, Jimmy and Amanda’s mother, said, “This wouldn’t have happened without Laurie and Connie. I feel very blessed. I know they’re watching. My kids were very special to a lot of people, very special to me.”
Jimmy and Amanda’s father plans to continue coaching at the ball fields in memory of his children.
