Lake Charles College Prep students, cheerleaders, and football players assisted in a grant proposal submitted by Jacqueline Smith, Parent and Community Specialist, in Lake Charles. Students in Mrs. Tynia Coleman’s class also mailed letters to the company pertaining to the need of upgrading and promoting our athletic program. Videos were also submitted by several athletic teams at LCCP.
The grant was submitted to Coca-Cola Bottling Company and PowerAde. Although our priority is academics, the grant was submitted with hopes of enhancing extracurricular activities, including football, cheerleading, basket-ball, and track. We hope to inspire our students with a portion of sweat equity and “Power Through” to suc-cess in both academics and sports during the 2016-2017 school year.
