Parish school bash a big success
With the slightest hint of fall in the air, this community once again helped the Lincoln Parish School District kick-off its academic year with an unbelievable bash on a Thursday night in the Ruston Civic Center. And with another record-breaking crowd, we feel even more empowered for success this year.
For the fourth year, the feedback has been absolutely amazing. And just as we have with each previous event, we’ve grown and grown.Attendance easily surpassed last year’s mark of 3, 400 and the enthusiastic crowd represented a marvelous cross-section of our community.
Energy was high as folks arrived early and stayed late. For more than two hours, families crowded into a room bustling with community and school booths, complimentary food and drink, exciting contests and giveaways and a lively soundtrack that helped power the evening along. But that’s what the Lincoln Parish District is all about this year—“Empowered for Excellence!” And certainly this community has embraced that goal with its participation in the annual bash.
