Benton Intermediate Receives Purple Star School Designation

The military plays a vital role in our community and is why Bention Intermediate is especially proud to be among the first schools in Louisiana to receive state designation as a Purple Star School.  

Legislation was passed over the summer to give schools throughout the state the opportunity to meet a set of criteria to be deemed Purple Star Schools, signifying they meet a high standard when it comes to providing support and various services to military students and their families.  

The Bossier Chamber of Commerce also designated Benton Intermediate as a Military Community Champion. 

Benton Intermediate, along with four other Bossier Parish schools, will be recognized next Thursday before the Bossier Parish School Board and on April 19th at the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education meeting in Baton Rouge.
