Mentors benefit at-risk students

Randy Moore never imagined the turnout Tuesday at the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office Safety Complex for the Teach One to Lead One mentor training session.

Twenty-four Lincoln and Union Parish residents volunteered six hours of their day training to become certified mentors for the program.

“We expected 16, not this many,” said Moore, a former Lincoln Parish educator and current Louisiana Tech University professor. “If this doesn’t show you our commitment, I don’t know what will.”

In my house, our spare room is a library.
While it may be counterproductive to having extended-stay guests, it works for us.
Shelves line the three walls that are not taken up by a large sliding glass door, and on those shelves are books with topics that range from religion to science fiction.
My husband and I take pride in our small collection, and have even started a small children’s section for when those may come in handy.
In that respect, we plan on taking after our parents and reading to our children even before they can see us turn the pages.
