Student of the Month is returning to Red River schools. The Coushatta VFW Post and Auxiliary are sponsoring the award. It will be made at the regular meeting of the school board beginning Monday September 10th.
Teachers and school faculty will nominate students and present reasons they should be chosen the Student of the Month. The nominees will be judged and the winner selected. The award program will run throughout the school year.
The student selected will be honored with their own “Certificate of Merit” presented by representatives of the VFW Post and Auxiliary. There will be special treats presented in the form of a gift card to Dairy Queen.
VFW Post 7287 and Auxiliary 7287 have served veterans in the Red River Parish area since January 1972. They also present the Voice of Democracy, Patriots Pen and Americanism programs to students in first through 12th grades. Those programs will begin shortly.
Any veteran seeking information on benefits they have earned while serving this country may call the post at 318-932-6557.
