|Weightlifting champs honored|
Two members of the Franklin Parish High School power lifting team were recognized during the regular meeting of the school board on Monday.
Freshmen power lifters Al'Derrius McCarthy and Stanley Lee, recently competed in the state power lifting meet held in Baton Rouge. McCarthy earned the title of 4-A State Champion in the 175 lb. class and Lee earned 4-A State Champion in the 181 lb. class.
Coach Barry Sebren and Joe Purvis, head coach of the power lifting team, presented each honoree with a plaque of recognition.
"These guys have been a pleasure to coach," Sebren said, "they're not only outstanding athletes, but they are exceptional young men."
Sebren and Purvis also presented bus driver Darren Michael, with a plaque of appreciation for his service to the power lifting team.
In business news, board members agreed to consider leasing school land near the Franklin Parish Detention Center to the Franklin Parish Sheriff's Department.
"The sheriff has expressed an interest in the property," said Supt. Lanny Johnson, "our attorney will draw up the paperwork for a co-operative agreement between the board and the sheriff's department."
According to an appraisal offered by Gary Robinson, the Ogden School and campus is valued at approximately $50,000. The property located on the west side of the highway, was appraised at $25,000 and the school buildings at $25,000. Board members approved a motion to advertise for sale bids on the Ogden School property.
