On May 5, 2019, First Baptist Church of Coushatta honored its high school seniors during Sunday morning services at the church. They are Brailee Vaughan of Coushatta and Elizabeth “Lizzie” Merriman of Converse. Brailee, the daughter of Amanda and Tye Adams of Coushatta, graduated from Riverdale Academy on May 9. Lizzie is the daughter of Shelly Sepulvado and Sam Merriman of Converse. She graduated from Converse High School on May 10. The young ladies were presented with study Bibles by youth pastor Bro. Jonah Morrow and his wife Katie.
Church pastor Dr. Nathan Davis spoke briefly to the ladies, advising them to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Brailee plans to attend East Texas Baptist University in Marshall. Lizzie will enroll at Central Louisiana Technical Community College.
