More than 100 area residents participated in Saturday’s local segment of the Louisiana Teen Challenge Walk to raise awareness for the program and funds for an addition to the Ruston induction center. Teen Challenge is a faith-based organization that helps rehabilitate men, women and families from addictions. Following the walk, participants enjoyed crawfish, corn and potatoes. Vincent Smith (foreground) scoops crawfish while Myles V. Seymour hands a plate to a customer.
Students from Cypress Springs Elementary School in Pat Albritton’s Advanced Learning Academy Class sold lemonade to passersby throughout Ruston on Tuesday.
The lemonade stands were part of a national project to teach elementary children applied math skills. The students had to create an authentic business model and present the model to a volunteer banker.
