First National Bank is offering a $1,500 college scholarship for the 2011 year.
All graduating seniors from schools in Lincoln Parish are encouraged to apply. The annual scholarship honors Jackie Woodard Whitlock, who worked in the Lincoln Parish school system for more than 20 years. She began working in education as a classroom teacher and moved to the central office for the last several years of her career.
The Village of Dubach approved the purchase of a new police vehicle for $19,564.
Dubach Police Chief Russell Croxton said because the police department has not had the position full-time police officer filled for quite some time, the police department had a surplus of $22,000.
“This let’s us have the chance of buying a new car that’s really needed for us,” he said.
Croxton said the vehicle will be ready for pick up in Baton Rouge on March 10.
