Good Morning

Leslie Ellison, Woody Koppel and Nolan Marshall Jr. have been endorsed by The Times-Picayune in their Orleans Parish School Board races.

Early voting begins today in Louisiana. Are you an early voter or a traditionalist who prefers to vote on election day?

Our focus during National Principals Month on leaders of choice programs continues this morning with a look at the work of David Dodge, principal of Garden Homes Lutheran School in Milwaukee. http://bit.ly/2eCzvyM

The LFC team delivered Wal-Mart gift cards to Hosanna Christian Academy in Baton Rouge on Monday. We are extremely thankful for the generous contributions made to the AFC Growth Fund’s flood relief fund – established to assist families who attend schools that participate in the Louisiana Scholarship Program.

Enjoy your day! – Paul
