It’s not everyday that a 14-year-old owns their own business, but Dakota Carpenter, of Choudrant, does.
Dakota will begin 10th grade at Darbonne Woods Charter School in the fall, but for now, she is focused on her business — Agua Plantas.
She was able to create her business through the help of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy.

In the case of the city of Ruston, murals and bulldog sculptures will help write the beginning sentences of the thousand-word opus that is the community.
The chain reaction began when the city was approved to be a Cultural District by the state Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism in 2016.
As a result, a Cultural Board was created to support growth, especially in the arts community, an enthusiastic, ideological group mostly filled with Ruston’s younger inhabitants.
