At only 17, Maddie Price, a senior at Ruston High School, already has big dreams.
“I would like to own a lot of restaurants in New York. Not necessarily a chain, but have different kinds,” Maddie said.
Not only did Maddie win this year’s Youth Grand Prize at the Squire Creek Louisiana Peach Festival Cookery Contest, she also recently attended the National Student Leadership Conference Culinary Arts and Careers program in New York City.
As part of a statewide tree program, the City of Ruston received Live Oak seedlings this past summer and now they are planted in hopes of beautifying one of the community’s park facilities.
Approximately three weeks ago, 25 trees were planted in Duncan Park, located at the corner of Arlington and West Vaughn Ave. The Live Oaks were planted in the 12-acre facility, among the Pecan, Bald Cypress, Green Ash, River Birch, Crape Myrtle and other oak trees that call the park home.
