The 2010 Legislative Luncheon had an excellent turnout. Shreveport Times reporter Nicole Blake Johnson wrote a very nice article detailing the event. Shreveport Times photographer Henrietta Wildsmith was on hand to capture a few snapshots of the discussion. Attendees included area legislators, Walter Lee of the Louisiana Board of Elementary & Secondary Education, Caddo Parish School Board members, the Superintendent and other school administrators, PTA leaders, CFT/SP Executive Board members, and members of the Committee on Political Education (C.O.P.E.).
