As the 2014-15 year came to a close, the Lincoln Parish School District presented Fifth Grade Graduation ceremonies for Cypress Springs Elementary and Ruston Elementary schools. Held in the worship center of The Bridge Community Church, each standing-room-only event featured presentation of student accolades and honors along with words of encouragement, challenge and congratulations from special guests and community stakeholders.
Lincoln Parish residents enjoyed local talent for a good cause Thursday night at the Dixie Center for the Arts in downtown Ruston for the annual “Ruston’s Got Talent” variety show and fundraiser for the March of Dimes.
The event was hosted by Cindy Hockenjos, founder of the show and grandmother to twins who were assisted by MOD at birth. She said she believes her granddaughters would not be alive today had it not been for the foundation’s support.
