Every year, the 16th Judicial District Attorney and his staff help the St. Mary Chamber raise funds for the Charlie Roe Scholarship Fund. Businesses across the parish donate items for auction that will benefit graduating students that have chosen to further their education. This year the chamber asked the students to “Pay it forward” by donating an item that they made to help fund a scholarship for next year. The art class at Hanson Memorial High School donated a hand painted stool. From left are Iris Sharpe, office manager at the Franklin Chamber Office; Donna F. Meyer, chamber president; Jacqueline Switzer and Shaye Polito, both juniors and art 1 students at Hanson Memorial High School; and Eugina Price, chamber finance director.
The City of Franklin, represented by Jeremy Smith, Jerome Roche Jr. and Arlana Shields, was the June sponsor of the Franklin cleanup. They were joined in the effort by Rita Champagne, Laura Finan, Ella Hamilton, Didi Battle, Marguerite Robinson, Raymond Hebert, Diana Alexander, A.D. Alexander, Kyron Wingate, Ahmaad Alexander and Leila Prevost. The crew cleaned up on Teche Drive, Martin Luther King Boulevard, around the Teche Theater and the courthouse rear area. Franklin Foundation supplied gloves, trash bags and grabbers, while Argus Spa supplied water.
