Bossier City Spotlight: Celebrating the Louisiana Student of the Year!

There is always something to celebrate in Bossier City but one thing that is definitely worthy of celebration and recognition is the Louisiana High School Student of the Year…. Zach Cryer. Wow!!! What an accomplishment. Zach is a Proud Senior at Benton High School and this recognition is a real tribute to Zach, his family and to Bossier Parish Schools. Zach won the honor as Elementary and Middle Student of the year also. Way to go Zach!!! The local Law Enforcement community will be quite busy this week.

On Wednesday May 15th our area Police Depts. will take part in the Special Olympics Torch Run. This is an event in which individual Officers will take the torch and run with it on various legs until it makes it way to the Shreveport Court House where there will be a joint proclamation read between the Mayor’s of both Cities.

Special Olympics is truly a worthwhile cause to take a pause and bring support and recognition to the wonderful individuals that take part with the Special Olympics. So if you see Police Officers running through town on Wednesday, just know that they are doing it for a worthy cause.

On Thursday there will be a Peace Officers Memorial that will honor those Law Enforcement Officers that gave the ultimate sacrifice for their communities in the line of duty. This is an annual memorial that takes place at the Peace Officers Memorial on the Shreveport Riverfront, and the ceremony begins at 10:00 a.m.

We would like to Welcome our newest Neighborhood to our City… Welcome to the Residents of Edge Water Pass. Though this awesome neighborhood has been here for a little while they had the formal ribbon cutting on Thursday of last week and Mayor Chandler was excited to welcome them and to attend.

Congratulations again to all of our Seniors. that graduated from Bossier High schools on Saturday. We are proud of you as you celebrated your commencement. Normally when we think of commencement or a commencement ceremony we think of the end of a chapter in one’s life. However the word commencement by definition does not refer to the ending of a chapter it identifies the beginning. So to our Graduates congratulations on not only what you have completed but we wish you the very best as you embark upon the next chapter of your lives.

Any adults that are interested in adult softball league please call Bossier Parks and Recreation the time to register teams and schedules is now underway.

The Bossier City Council meeting went well on Tuesday as they met in regular session to take care of the Business of Bossier City.

The Bossier City Police Dept. had a busy week as they had to respond to a number of incidents that had tragic outcomes. This is a good time for us to pause and thank our Police Dept. for the work they do each day to keep us safe. Have a Great week everyone and we will see you next, and who knows.. the “Spotlight” might be on you. Stay safe.
