Cooley Elementary were treated to a special guest speaker on Friday.  Cincinnati Bengal Kyries Hebert spoke to students about the importance of a quality education leading to success in life. Hebert is a native of Eunice and a graduate of The University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

Kyries stayed after his talk to sign autographs for the students.  He said he is excited to offer a football, cheer, & dance camp to students ages 8-18 on April 3, 2010 in Eunice.  Students will work with NFL players and cheerleaders to improve their skills on the field and on the sidelines.

The camp costs $45, but scholarships are available.  Some of the money raised will go to the Eunice High School Athletic Department.
