Three brothers will be the first set of triplets to ever graduate from Louisiana’s Grambling State University as Stevie, Steven and Stephon Wilson, natives of Winnfield graduate from Grambling State University.

The brothers will walk on April 15, feeling accomplished in their own right as trailblazers for their hometown community.

“[When we graduated high school] we saw it. When we all left [for college] they were very, very emotional but us graduating and actually separating – I think it’s going to be bittersweet, but they’ll be happy because we’ll be third [generation] legacy,” said Steven. “Our motto when we left Winnfield was to set the standard for other African American minorities in our town. [For] so many young students in Winnfield, they don’t have that role model to look up to. We set that standard to let them know it can be done.”

The Rotary Club of Winnfield brought in Carolyn Phillips to recognize and honor her for her work she does for the community and were joined by current mayor George Moss and previous mayors Deano Thornton, Kiah Beville and B.R. Audirsch and former editor at the Winn Parish Enterprise Bob Poleman to say a program on Phillips.

Rotarian of the Week Ted Wold had planned to honor Phillips last year, but due to COVID-19 pushed it back a year.

Wold had told Phillips to give a program about her work with Uncle Earl’s Hog Dog Festival and the Louisiana Political Museum because she knew she’d never come to a program honoring her accomplishments in the community.

Winnfield Middle School Beta back at nationals

Winnfield Middle School Beta back at nationals

Breanna Pray who won first place in performing arts solo

Competing at he Beta State Competition looked a lot different this year. Instead of spending two and a half days in Lafayette at the Cajun Dome, we took all of our tests and posted all of our entries virtually. Preparing for team events was largely done virtually and projects were completed away from school rather than all gathered up in a classroom. And rather than finding out the results on that last day, we waited nearly four weeks to get our results! But, with all of the differences Winnfield Middle School had amazing results with seven events placing the top 5 and qualifying for Nationals, which will be held at the end of June at Disney World in Orlando, Florida! Congratulations to all who competed, you should be very proud of yourselves! Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to see how we do this summer!

The newly renovated rooms recieved a new dose of paint on the walls, beds, floors, and couches to make them more comfortable.

The Rotary Club of Winnfield was visited by new CEO of the Winn Parish Medical Center Monica Lewis who talked about the ongoing renovations and changes happening at the medical center.

The renovations were announced when owner Rock Bordelon visited on Aug. 10, 2020 announcing that the employees at the medical center would all receive paid bonuses after their exceptional service during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The renovations in the first phase are complete, with new tile put in most of the hospital, renovated rooms and a renovated cafeteria.

“We survived COVID,” Lewis said. “We’re in a very good spot, and COVID actually helped us financially”

Though, Lewis said that morale took a hit and it was hard at times to work through the pandemic, and had a patient in the hospital every week since last April, finally having a reprieve last week that marked their first day without a COVID patient.
