Nine Prescott Middle students take a ride in a limousine. They were recognized for academic achievement.
Nine honor roll students from Prescott Middle School were rewarded with a limousine ride on Friday, November 30th. 100 Black Men of Metro Baton Rouge recognized the students from their academic achievements. The students rode to CiCi’s Pizza where they were treated to a special lunch. They also received a medal, which according to 100 Black Men Board Member John Smith, symbolizes wisdom and knowledge.
The students were selected not only for their outstanding work in the classroom, but also because their parents attended a special meeting after the school’s honor roll celebration on November 9th. Community Relations Facilitator Wanda Crump says all parents were invited to attend, but the parents of the nine students remained. “It was a win-win,” she said.
