OLPH students win campaign to keep recycling in Plaq. Parish
By Kari Dequine Harden
It was a well-organized campaign by the 7th grade religion class at Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH), and a positive lesson in the democratic process showing that decisions made by government are not always final. At the Jan. 28 Plaquemines Parish Council meeting, it was announced by Plaquemines Parish President Amos Cormier that the administration would keep the parish’s recycling program, reversing course from the announcement made on Jan. 8 that recycling would end on March 1 due to budget constraints.
