Recently elected Mayor Ronnie Williams Jr. and Purchasing & Human Resources Director Edd Lee took the day, Dec. 9, to visit and learn more about Louisiana’s only pharmacy benefit manager – Southern Scripts. Not only is Southern Scripts making national waves in the PBM industry from right here in Natchitoches, but the city is also a longtime client of the company.

Mayor Williams and Lee visited with Chief Executive Officer/Co-Founder LeAnn C. Boyd and Owner/Co-Founder Steven T. Boyd. The leadership duo introduced Southern Scripts and its role with the City of Natchitoches, detailing how the company serves the city and a peek at employment attraction, increases, and retention.

“Meeting with a client that has new and old faces is such a rare and special opportunity for us—it gives us the chance to not only touch upon how far we’ve come in our partnership but to take a look into the bright future ahead,” said LeAnn C. Boyd. “Our partnership with the City of Natchitoches is beyond special, and we look forward to many successful years to come.”

“It was such a special day to be able to take an inside look at a highly successful company headquartered in Natchitoches,” said Williams. “We are beyond grateful to have such an extraordinary business that puts our city on the map as well as taking care of our very own.”
