Just about a month of the school year has been completed. It is time to celebrate students who do outstanding things at their schools. Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7287 and Auxiliary 7287 are again partnering with local schools to honor their outstanding students each month.
The first presentations will be made Monday night at the meeting of the Red River Parish School Board. Students from public schools in the parish will be recognized before the board by Superintendent Alison Hughes.
To mark their selection, each student will be given a certificate and Dairy Queen gift card furnished by Post and Auxiliary 7287. And each will get their picture and story in a future edition of The Journal.
