When it comes to her art, Raluca Iancu, a local artist and assistant professor of drawing and printmaking at Louisiana Tech University, likes to “examine tragedy through a humorous lens” and will do just that during her upcoming exhibit, “Things That Go Pop” slated to open with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday at Studio 301, located at 301 N. Trenton St. in Ruston.
More than 100 local girls cheered, danced and stunted their hearts out this week at the annual Ruston High School Mini Cheerleader Camp.
Heather Reeder, RHS spirit coach, said this year’s event was the biggest in quite a while.
“This is a great year,” Reeder said. “We have 120 girls. Normally we have around 90.”
Three of the Louisiana Tech Bulldog football players recently visited with the fifth graders at Ruston Elementary School and talked about being student athletes. The students prepared questions and asked them in a panel format. The players who attended were No. 39 Warren Bates, No. 16 Scotty Young and No. 68 Josh Richardson, who are pictured above with RES students.
