Tuesday, November 17, 2020 Winn Parish School Superintendent spoke to the Kiwanis Club. He has been in the education field for over 40 years and has been superintendent for 21 years. Children are his world. Normally at this time of year he would be giving performance scores for the state and district but there are no performance scores from last year due to school ending in March. Covid took the last 9 weeks of school last year and the beginning of this year. Then came Hurricane Laura and Delta and took away more school time. It is still important to educate children.

Thanksgiving extra special for RRMC Trauma Patient

Shelbi Poe and the staff at Rapides Regional Medical Staff

Shelbi Poe and her family have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Yes, they are thankful for their 10 month-old twins, Jackson and Stella. But they are also thankful for the surgeons and staff at Rapides Regional Medical Center who saved Shelbi’s arm after an ATV accident earlier this year.

“It was April 4,” said Shelbi Poe, 26, of Leesville. “We were at home and since we were in the middle of COVID, we were having a small get together with family and friends.”

There was a bonfire. And crawfish. And then, a ride on a side-by-side in the pasture with friends. Shelbi was on the passenger side when the ATV flipped.
