Through their "Discovering Tomorrow's Leaders" program Chesapeake Energy Corporation awarded $16,000 to area schools, recognizing young leaders in our community. Students in Bossier and Caddo parishes were recognized for their outstanding service in organizations such as 4H and FCA.


Beginning on February 14, for eight weeks one student from Caddo Parish and one student from Bossier Parish were selected by the Alliance for Education to be recognized in front of a group of their peers for demonstrations of leadership in a nonprofit organization like 4H or FCA. Each winning student was featured in The Shreveport Times and on Kiss Country radio and the winning student’s school received $1,000 for equipment or technology supplies.
