Drug-Free Rally held for South Crowley Elementary
South Crowley Elementary School students finished their week long commemoration of Red Ribbon Week with a march led by Chief of Police Jimmy Broussard, and Principal April Mixon.
The students marched from the school north bound on Parkerson Avenue where they settled down for an assembly held outside the Crowley Enterprise building.
The assembly consisted of speeches encouraging healthy minds, bodies and a drug-free life from the following speakers: Acadia Parish Sheriff K.P. Gibson, Chief of Police Broussard, Crowley High School Head Football Coach Jepta Wall and Sherard Joesph of the Acadia Parish School Board.
Also attending the assembly were Crowley High football players who marched with the students on the streets as the students of both schools who took a pledge to remain drug free.
