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.

The hardworking thoughtfulness of Javonti

When Winnfield native Javonti Thomas enrolled at Northwestern State University, he originally signed up to be an English Education major.

“I never really thought about communications until I was at orientation,” Thomas said. I actually changed the day of freshmen orientation. I met one of the communication professors at the time, and they told me to do radio, and I was like, ‘radio?’ I never thought about radio, I just like to write.

Thomas’ introduction into radio with KNWD his freshmen year encouraged him to explore the breadth of what the Department of New Media, Journalism, and Communication Arts had to offer, including broadcast media, which would later become his career.
