When current Ruston High School Assistant Principal David Crowe started high school, he completed his first two years at Lincoln Parish High School, which at the time consisted of an all African-American student body, but soon found himself in the midst of a major change.
Starting in his junior year, Crowe and the rest of his classmates found themselves walking new halls, so to speak, this time at the newly integrated Ruston High School.
“We were transported to RHS at the beginning of my junior year. It was the 1969-70 school year,” he said.
DUBACH — Despite the lower rate and greater taxpayer exposure offered by the Ruston Daily Leader, the Dubach Town Council at their Monday meeting unanimously selected the Morning Paper as the town’s official journal for the 2011-12 fiscal year.
The motion was introduced by council member Davie Powell and seconded by member Hattie Graham.
The Morning Paper proposal offered to publish the town’s legal advertisements, public notices, meeting minutes and other business for $3.75 per 100 words if sent by email.
