Mrs. Linnie Lee was a teacher in Bossier Parish long enough to actually teach some of the grandchildren of her former students. For 50 years she dedicated her life to the young, elementary students in Bossier. And since her retirement she still manages to dedicate a large portion of her time to children by reading to them, just watching over them, or at Shriner's Hospital.

Without any hesitation, when we read her nomination letter from Shelby Sepulvado, we knew we had to name Mrs. Linnie this week's recipient of the Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award. Take a look at that letter and you'll understand just how easy this decision was.

Linnie will be 82 in September. She looks and acts like she’s still in her 50’s. She goes above and beyond to help anyone. Every day she reads to both of my children. She also helps take care of my one year old. She loves volunteering her extra time at Shriners hospital or spending time with her grandchildren walking around the front yard picking flowers or rocking them on the front porch swing. She was a teacher for over 50 years in for Bossier parish. Her heart is so big! She always sees the good in every situation and loves everyone equally. She also, always does for others before herself! She likes spending her Sunday mornings at SBBC & Thursday mornings with her small bible group. She lost her brother a few months ago to COVID and still saw the good in that. “He was Home with their momma, daddy, & The Lord.”

Mrs. Linnie Lee, thank you for being an inspiration to us all and a big reason why this is the greatest place in America to live!

And because you've been "Caught in the Act" the gang at Silver Star have a $100 Gift Certificate for you to come have dinner on them!

Take a listen to the phone call we made to Mrs. Linnie to let her know that she was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
