SU Ag Center Summit Encourages Youth

BATON ROUGE, LA - SU Ag Center kicked off its four-parish Back-to-School Summit in Opelousas on August 18.
Eighth-grade students are entering a time in their lives that will be full of temptation and pressure to make poor decisions, which the Southern University Southwest Center for Rural Initiatives hoped to curtail with its annual Back-to-School Summit.

"They're at a very critical age," center area agent Edna LaStrapes said. "They're surrounded by negative peer pressure."
The four-parish Back-to-School Summit entered its 11th year in St. Landry Parish on Thursday and will continue for two days with every St. Landry Parish eighth-grade student participating in the program at the Opelousas Civic Center.
