Fifty-two ladies recently discovered that Ruston is more than just peaches.
The Ruston Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau recently welcomed a group tour from South Louisiana. The tour was organized by Janice Fontenot, activity coordinator for the Ville Platte Council on Aging.
Throughout the year the Ville Platte Council on Aging, in conjunction with the St. Landry Parish Council on Aging, plan group tours for those who participated in the Council on Aging program. The trips are designed to be fun and engaging to keep those who attend vibrant and active in their retirement.
Six local high school students have been named National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists. From Ruston High School, seniors John Herren, John Moore, Samuel Phillips and Savannah Woods have received the honor. Two Cedar Creek students — Jeffrey C. Carroll and Chloe A. Kaczvinsky — are named as semifinalists.
