The annual Lincoln Parish Career Night for all high school juniors and seniors from Jackson and Lincoln Parishes was held Tuesday afternoon in the student center at Louisiana Tech University.
“I am so pleased that we had such a wonderful turnout and that so many students took advantage of the opportunity to learn about many of the options available to them after high school,” Lincoln Parish School Counselor Jesse Bryan said. “I would like to thank all of the businesses, schools and agencies that participated. This program would not be successful without their support.”
Installing fencing at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center is still underway despite setbacks.
Warden Jim Tuten said the entire portion of the 12-foot fencing has been finished except for the locks and the motors.
“We’re just waiting,” he said. “We ordered the locks and motors Dec. 1. They were backordered at the time, and we’ve only gotten three in so far.”
After talking with the contractor — Affordable Fencing, Tuten said some of the motors are thought to be in Shreveport.
There was much activity in the halls and classrooms of Ruston Elementary School on Thursday.
Members of Trinity United Methodist Church and students and faculty from schools including Cedar Creek and Ruston High School converged at RES to throw Christmas parties for the classes.
Susan Edminston, an RES first-grade teacher, said her students had been excited all morning about their party.
