On May 23, 2021, the First Baptist Church of Coushatta honored its four graduating high school seniors in the morning service. They are Timothy Thomas, Red River High; and Parker Almond, Paul Messenger, and Witt Almond, all from Riverdale Academy. Presenting the four with new study Bibles and some words of wisdom was Dr. Nathan Davis, pastor. The congregation enjoyed seeing a slide show of the boys as they were growing up. After the service, the boys were honored with a church wide dinner in the family life center.
Timothy’s parents are Adaire and Randy Thomas, Jr. and Parker’s parents are Heather and Will Almond. Paul’s parents are Ashlie and Clay Messenger and Witt’s parents are Dawn and Winn Almond. All four young men plan to attend Northwestern State University in Natchitoches this fall.
