University of Louisiana System President Sandra Woodley met with five SGA leaders on Tuesday because she wants to understand student concerns — and they spoke on behalf of Grambling State University students.
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sen. David Vitter, R-Louisiana, chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, recently announced Patton’s Western Wear, LLC of Ruston, as Small Business of the Week, and will be submitting it into the official Congressional Record.
“In addition to their economic contributions, small businesses play a large role in supporting their local communities and traditions, including annual charities and festivals,” Vitter said.
Cedar Creek eighth grader Mary Wynne is the best speller around. She won the Northwest Louisiana Regional Spelling Bee competition in the University Center at LSU-Shreveport on March 8, and will compete in the national competition in Washington D.C. on May 25.
“I don’t get nervous — whether it’s five, 50, 500 or 5 million people — I’ll be the same,” Mary said.
Perhaps it was those nerves of steel that helped Mary to make it through all 88 rounds. And the competition was steep.
