Principals of Jena High since 1869

by By Billy Fowler
 
It disturbs me that our Jena High School students graduate and do not know the history of our old beloved school. Little do they know the history of our old school goes back to 1843 and many of the things we grew up believing to be true is not true. It is a long story. However, all JHS grads needs to know that the Rev. Talbert A. Routon is the one person who got our school started back in 1869. Rev. Routon came to the Hemps Creek area in 1839 from Georgia and quickly became the leading citizen. It was the Rev. Routon who started the Old Salem Church in 1843 and later in 1869, a school.

A potpourri of Jena Giant football

By Billy Fowler
 
Being a graduate of Northwestern State University, this word potpourri is very special because it is the name of our yearbook. Let me define potpourri for all you Louisiana Tech folks out there who do not know what the word means. It is defined as a mixture of dried sweet smelling flower petals used to perfume a place. Now, just how does this relate to Giant football! Simple! This 2015 version of our Giant football team clearly gave all of us a very sweet smell that we all enjoyed. Hopefully this sweet smell will carry over into many more years of sweetness. The Lord knows we have had our share of that other smell which is not so sweet.
