Vernon Parish students participated in the Extended School Year Service Walk-A-Thon Thursday, July 23.
The purpose of the walk was to promote good health, positive learning and social and emotional development.
“The walk was very successful in ending the ESYS program for the summer of 2009,” said Supervisor of Special Education, Opalene Haynes. The students, parents and staff indicated the walk was a great experience and plan to continue it in the future.
Superintendent of Vernon Parish Schools Jackie Self and personnel Director  Jimmy Funderburk led the walk beginning at the Museum of West Louisiana and ending at the Vernon Parish School Board Office.
