In a year that saw 95 percent of the class of 2015 apply to at least one college, Dec. 5 marked the inaugural East Feliciana public schools College Day, according to school officials.

Each school celebrated the day using activities and lessons that inspired students to pursue postsecondary educational opportunities at a college or university of their choice.

Included among the festivities at the East Feliciana Enrichment Academy was a speaker from Grambling State University.

“We are proud to be developing a culture of college and career readiness among students of all ages in the East Feliciana Public Schools,” Superintendent Henderson Lewis Jr. said.
