Coach Antonio Beaudion presented Weaver Elementary’s first student body president and Weaver Elite’s representative Genesis Conday to the Natchitoches Parish School Board at its meeting on June 3. The program was started this past school year for third and fourth grade students to promote leadership, positive behavior and scholarship.
