Metropolitan Republican Women recently awarded a $1,500 scholarship to Alisse Guerra, a recent graduate of Mount Carmel Academy who plans to attend LSU in the fall.

Guerra won the scholarship in a Bill of Rights essay contest, in which she chose the topic of the Fourth Amendment right to privacy.

Kenner City Council member Maria DeFrancesh was the guest speaker at the meeting; she discussed the value of a good education and the effect of the Bill of Rights on our lives today.
