WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) announced today that the East Baton Rouge Parish School Board received a $1.8 million grant from FEMA to replace four damaged buildings at Glen Oaks High School.  A second FEMA grant for $1.4 million was given to the Ascension Parish School Board for the St. Amant High School campus.  Both schools suffered severe flooding in 2016.

“The teachers and students at Glen Oaks High School and St. Amant High School need new classrooms so they can focus on what’s important—teaching and learning,” said Sen. Kennedy. “These grants will help these schools continue to recover from the devastating flooding of 2016 and build a better learning environment for our children.”
