Teachers and students alike like the fresh feeling of the beginning of a new school year.
New touches at the Lincoln Parish Head Start building on Oakdale Street will add even more freshness to the start of the new school year after the facility underwent a slight facelift Saturday thanks to some of its friends at Louisiana Tech University.
Students from the Community Design Assistance Center, part of Tech’s School of Architecture, joined with Head Start employees and others to paint the interior of the facility.
