New Living Word OK’d for 315 state vouchers
RUSTON (AP) — New Living Word has been approved to accept 315 students as part of the state’s scholarship program, but the school doesn’t currently have the facilities or teachers to accommodate that many students.
New Living Word School in Ruston had 122 students last year. The Rev. Jerry Baldwin, the school’s principal and church pastor, said students currently meet in rooms that serve as the church’s Sunday School classrooms.
