Tech helps DART

112314 DART 1 C.jpg

The Louisiana Tech University Women’s Softball Team helped the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team recently by applying a fresh coat of paint to the life-sized silhouettes, which stood in front of The Bridge Community Church last month, in memory of lives lost to domestic violence in our community.
“(The softball team members) were a big help,” said DART Community Advocate Terrie Queen Autrey. “And they were very moved to hear some of the stories of the silhouettes.”

Arrington, Briana NEW 8-14.jpg
