LAPLACE — For the past 25 years, stellar scholars in St. John the Baptist Parish schools have been treated to freebies and discounts from local businesses through the Gold and Silver Card Award Program.

Many of the adults in today’s local workforce fondly remember using their cards for $1 movie days and free ice cream at participating fast food locations.

Longtime School Board member Clarence Triche said it’s easy for businesses to get involved; all it takes is a Gold and Silver Award sign in the door and a token of appreciation for students who earn a spot on the principal’s list or the A/B honor roll.
