Every year, Rotary Club of Natchitoches distributes free dictionaries to all fourth-grade students in Natchitoches Parish. Rotarian and Natchitoches Parish Librarian Jessica McGrath orders and organizes the dictionaries. This year, Northwestern State University graduate students Kellen Culpepper and Amber Holmes volunteered to personalize each student’s dictionary with their name. Then the Rotarians delivered dictionaries to all 4th grade classrooms in Natchitoches Parish. Rotarians Dr. Ron McBride and Kendell Perkins distributed dictionaries to Mrs. Kaufman and Mrs. Procell’s 4th grade students at Northwestern State University Elementary Laboratory School. McBride made his grandson’s day by personally giving him his own dictionary. Pictured from left are McBride and Jace Henson (Photo by Mrs. Kaufman).
