The second annual Hope for Autism 5k race was held at Lincoln Parish Park on Saturday.
More than 400 participants came out to show their support for Autism Spectrum Disorder, which affects 1 in 68 children. Micheal Pruden won first place in the men’s division with a time of 21:50. The first place winner for the women’s division was Suzanne Tyler, a special education teacher at Glen View Elementary, with a time of 23:11.
“I’m running today for two of my students,” Tyler said.
All proceeds raised from the event will benefit the Hope Center for Autism, located at 206 E. Reynolds Drive.
The Lincoln Parish Library has a lot to boast about in 2012. Not only was the library named the public library of the year for 2012, it is also the workplace of this year’s Librarian of the Year Award recipient.
Jeremy Bolom, assistant director and head of public service for the library, was presented with the Librarian of the Year Award at the 2012 Louisiana Library Association Conference held at the Shreveport Convention Center in Shreveport last week.
As the holiday season approaches, Cypress Springs Elementary School is thankful for students who possess great character, integrity, and solid work ethic.
For example, fourth- grader Jaraylon Burks recently found $100 during the CSE Book Fair and turned it in to the office for recovery by the individual who lost it.
CSE Principal Doris Lewis and faculty salute Jaraylon for representing the best of the best during this holiday season and commend his parents and family for their part in providing such an inspiring gift for the school and this community.
