Thigpens play host
Jack and Ann Thigpen are determined that the 28 basketball teams coming to Ruston this week for the Louisiana High School Athletic Association boys’ and girls’ state basketball finals will have a memorable time, no matter the outcome of the games.
The Thigpens are co-chairs of the team host committee. They’ve recruited volunteers to serve as a host family for each team. Host families welcome their team to Ruston and help meet any needs the team may have during its stay.
