Lincoln Parish School Superintendent Danny Bell gave his annual State of the District report to interested citizens, school personnel and public officials in the community room at the Lincoln Parish Library Wednesday morning.
Bell said the parish has lived up to its motto of “Together We Achieve” by being a like-minded community, which has come together to improve Lincoln Parish schools more than ever before.
“I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a stronger connection of community with school,” Bell said. “It’s not just about Ruston, it’s about all of us and I want to say ‘thank you.’”

Invariably, I am the epitome of someone who grows her hair out only to cut it back off shorter than when I began growing it.
