Six eminently deserving young people from our community received a boost for their college careers Thursday, July 26 as the Natchitoches Community Improvement Foundation, Inc, awarded each of them a $1,000 scholarship at the Martin Luther King Recreation Center.
Ms. Laura Porter, a rising sophomore at Dillard University, and a past recipient of a scholarship from the foundation, spoke to this year’s scholars and their families. Ms. Porter is majoring in biology with a minor in chemistry and is planning on a career in research.
Earning scholarships were: Antonio Aaron, Joshua Below, De’Jon Blake, Taylor A. Johnson, Tomas Parker, and Brian White. The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes to commend them for their hard work and perseverance. We look forward to seeing good things from them as they go on to the next step in their lives. Well done ladies and gentlemen!
