The Cedar Creek Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society and Middle School Student Council joined forces to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House that serves northeastern Louisiana.
The two student organizations raised $600 to help defray the costs for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Monroe, which provides a “home away from home” for families while they have loved ones in area medical centers.
New Tech @ Ruston staff and community partners recently represented Lincoln Parish and Louisiana at the New Tech Annual Conference held in Chicago. NT@R Teacher Advocate Tara Raue, English teacher Lane White and Director Missy Wooley presented a session entitled “Taking the CRAzy Out of CRAs,” which focused on the success NT@R students have experienced with the College Readiness Assessment initiative.
There is music in the air in downtown Ruston as we gather for great performances today and Saturday. From Railroad Park Stage, to the Dixie Center for the Arts and the Civic Center Stage, festival goers will find more music and more variety than previous festivals.
It is easy to find just what you are looking for as you soak up the sights and sounds of the 65th Louisiana Peach Festival.
The revitalization of downtown Ruston is a great backdrop for events that are sure to be crowd pleasers.
A favorite of festival guests has always been the Russ-Town Band.
