Changes bad for Louisiana schools

in

Good news! We are fortunate in Lincoln Parish that our Superintendent, Mr. Danny Bell, our Lincoln Parish School Board, and our principals have a strong commitment to school librarians in grades kindergarten through 12, and value the school library as an important center of information in our schools.

Despite the cold and rainy weather, Louisiana Tech University was energetic, as it held its ninth practice of the spring late Wednesday afternoon at Joe Aillet Stadium.
After the team’s last practice — a scrimmage last Wednesday — was marked by inconsistent play and some lethargy on the field, this week’s first practice back from Easter break showed an entirely different team. Miscues were still there at times and the weather made catching the ball difficult, but the team was as energized and animated as if it was the first practice of the spring.
