Since 1974, when I was appointed Postmaster, I have been proud to call Ruston and Lincoln Parish home. You will not find better people anywhere. We also have governmental leaders who seem to have our best interest and safety at heart. Our local law enforcement is second to none. The same goes for our firefighters, homeland security and others who keep us safe.

During the season of giving I.A. Lewis has a lot to be thankful for.
We thank Cathi Cox and Project ACHIEVE for allowing our student council a few of the Ruston Kiwanis Terrific Kids to attend a local production of the historical drama “It’s a Wonderful Life” at the Dixie Center for Performing Arts.
We were also able to thank a few of our local community partners including Bancorp South, The Cleaners of Ruston, and WHATABURGER. On our visit to the Cleaners of Ruston, our students got a personal tour of the popular Ruston business thanks to the kindness of owner Mary Shepherd.
