Choudrant and Simsboro appear to be a great place education.
The schools in both municipalities were named as Top Gains Schools when School Performance Scores were released last week. To be named a Top Gains School, schools have to see a five to 10 point increase in score.
Donna Doss, school improvement and accountability coordinator for the parish, said schools that are already an ‘A’ school, such as Choudrant High, have to earn five additional points, while other schools must gain 10.
Rolling Hills Ministries in Ruston is much more than a thrift store. For some, it’s a lifesaver.
Since the late ’90s, associates of the ministry have been involved in disaster relief programs. Since the Rolling Hills complex was opened in the early 2000s, it has become a hub for disaster relief supplies, facilities and training.
There are more than 1,000 volunteers in North Louisiana involved in the Rolling Hills disaster relief ministry.
