Echoes of Our Past

Webster Parish Schools opened 80 years ago

With this week marking the beginning of school in Webster Parish I am rerunning an article I published five years ago, on September 1, 2006. So as you read the article it will still refer to my mother as living and some people's job descriptions will have changed, but the events of 80 years ago are still the same.

August marked the opening of the Webster Parish schools. As Caddo Parish schools prepared for opening, my mother mentioned that she noticed that Fairfield Avenue Elementary School was now a magnet school.
