Dale Skinner, Superintendent of Natchitoches Parish Schools, spoke to the Boys to Men Club at the Natchitoches Jr. High. Skinner addressed the students on topics including: setting high goals, being willing to do the right things, treating everyone with respect and integrity, and defining your expectations, just to name a few.
The Boys to Men Club is a youth organization that is designed to teach young males life skills, prior to entering high school, that they do not get within the classroom.
