Chamber decorates for Port City Classic

The Port City Classic is drawing statewide attention.The Grambling Chamber of Commerence has taken an active role in supporting GSU’s classic to be held in Shrevport at 6 p.m. Saturday.

“The Chamber considers it an honor to work with the university and the local business owners,” said Barbara McIntyre, president of the Grambling Chamber.

McIntyre said that when Ralph Wilson asked the chamber to become involved in a project that would get the community excited about the Port City Classic it was a no-brainier.
Not only did the chamber excite the business owners but Grambling Laboratory High School as well.

“This is our mission and to involve our students at the Lab School made it a golden opportunity not to be missed. The Lab School principal Mrs. Boston couldn’t have been more cooperative,” said McIntyre.

We hope the community will visit the Village and see the creative art work and patronize the downtown merchants.

The students in Mrs. Kerry Deason’s first hour Fine Arts class enjoyed the challenge of decorating the business windows in down town Grambling.

The students included:
Jimya Boston, Shadavalyn Hackney, Keshun Hudson, Xavier Kirkpatrick, Gabreonna Levingston,Tatianna McTeak, Tyriel Rolling, Edwin Thomas, Jessica Watts, Chelsea Williams, Deangelo Williams, and Jacolby Williams.
