Staff Report

Shout Out Chair James E. LeBlanc released the schedule for the East Ascension and St. Amant tradition.

The event will be Nov. 4 at the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

This community event has been going on for many years and packs the entire arena to see who brings home the “spirit stick” for the next 12 months.

The Shout Out Committee started in the early 1980s on the streets along Burnside and carried on for many years. In 2008 the EA/St. Amant Shout Committee was brought back and started raising money for both schools.

According to LeBlanc, $12,000 per school was raised this year.

There is a different event and competition that takes place all week long between both schools.

  • Golf tournament that has over 180 residents playing in it
  • Freshman / JV double header between the schools
  • Can goods drive, to see who can collect the most food for the needy
