It was a fierce battle for first place between Carlos Wallace and David Davault in LRSD’s Dads Take Your Child to School Facebook Photo Contest. Both described their participation in the contest as exciting, fun and at times a little stressful. In the end, Carlos Wallace edged out David Davault by a mere 37 votes.
The top 50 winners of the contest enjoyed a special luncheon, provided by Chick-fil-A with Superintendent Dr. Dexter Suggs. The following businesses donated prizes: ParentLink, Washington Barber College, Cajun’s Wharf, Capers, Copper Grill, Hearne Fine Art, United Way and LRSD Parent Involvement. Each father/male role model received a gift bag full of goodies.
After Wallace collected the grand prize of the iPad mini, he shared with the group that he had big plans for it. He announced that he would offer it to the student at his church with the best grades who also maintained outstanding moral character throughout the year.
LRSD’s Dads Take Your Child to School Day was a resounding success! Fathers and male role models came out in huge numbers to show their support for student education on the first day of school. We applaud each and every one of you. You all truly are fantastic fathers.
