ETC… for Friday, January 15th

The regular monthly meeting of the Red River Parish School Board was cancelled by the snow storm.  It has been rescheduled for Thursday, January 21st at 4:30.  The Journal will stream the meeting live.

The Riverdale Rebels earned four more wins vs Prairie View Academy.  Tuesday night scores were:
JVG: 36-22, JVB: 40-13, VG: 42-17, and VB: 71-47.
Tonight, January 15th Riverdale hosts Central School. There will only be boys games.  They will be streamed live on Journal Sports.

Crystal Cummins with Magnolia Bend Academy announced extended school closure.  She said, “The electricity has been on at the school throughout this week, and it just went off this evening (Tuesday). I assumed they were working on it and it would be back on; however, it has not come back on. SWEPCO says restoration is tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10:00 pm.  Therefore, I am regretfully calling off school for the rest of the week.”

Louisiana Tech University has announced the conclusion of the public phase of Forever Loyal: The Campaign for Louisiana Tech University, the boldest fundraising initiative in the institution’s history, which raised more than $171 million.  “When we publicly announced our goal in 2018, though ambitious, we were confident the loyal members of our Tech Family would respond in tremendous ways,” said Tech President Dr. Les Guice. “This momentous achievement would not have been possible without the commitment of thousands of members of the Tech Family. We are grateful for their unwavering support and overwhelming generosity.”

Finally, a reminder of the food drive that parish 4-H Clubs are conducting this month.
