Bossier City Celebrates ‘Month of the Military Child’

townsquare media

The ArkLaTex has long been a hotbed of military activity, predominantly because of Bossier City being home to Barksdale Air Force Base. That’s why the month of April’s designation as ‘Month of the Military Child’ is so important to our area.

Bossier City Mayor Lo Walker and Georgette Price, Military Student Transition Consultant for Bossier schools joined Erin and me in the KVKI studios this morning to tell us more.

Ms. Price reminded listeners that there are over 2,000 military children in our area, and they face many unique challenges including parent deployments and frequent moves. Mayor Walker talked about the purpose of ‘Military Child Month’ being to recognize the contribution those children make as their parents serve our nation. Both guests also urged folks all over the ArkLaTex to wear purple this Friday (‘Purple up’, as The Mayor called it) in support of the day and our area’s military in general. Mayor Walker will also proclaim Friday ‘Purple Up Day’ in a special ceremony at Elm Grove Middle School.

For ideas on how you and / or your business can offer assistance, contact Ms. Price (549-6164) at Bossier Parish Schools or Monique Roux (746-0252) at the Bossier Chamber of Commerce.
