Ruston High School students took it upon themselves Thursday to raise awareness of the global water crisis.
Lindsay Bolton, ninth grade teacher at RHS, said this was the first year for the event.
“In all the freshman New Tech classes we did a cross-curricular program on Africa and the global water crisis,” she said. “Since today was World Water Day we decided to do the event as a fundraiser and to raise awareness.”

She earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education, and returned to Tech in 1969 as an assistant professor of English.
Children and adults of all ages are invited to celebrate the Lincoln Parish Library’s 50th anniversary by attending “Once Upon a Time Through the Time Machine” from 2-4p.m. Saturday in the Library Events Center.
