New Generations in conjunction with the PHS Key Club, sponsored another Job Opportunity assembly for our students. Chief Garrett Grogan and Sgt. Kevin Stewart from the Patterson Police Department spoke on employment opportunities in law enforcement. The Job Opportunity project was presented to community leaders in April and supported by the tri city area businesses. This is the second in a series of monthly presentations by local employers.
Bill Marin, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Patterson State Bank, presented a short program on the banking industry. In his talk, Mr. Marin provided students of Patterson High School with information about job opportunities as well as strategies to make a positive impression on potential employers. The presentation was arranged by the Key Club of PHS in conjunction with New Generations community outreach. Shown with Mr. Marin is Mrs. Millet, Key Club Sponsor.
SFC Robert Gregoire and SGT Dylan Mandeville from the Louisiana National Guard visited Ms. Hill’s Food and Nutrition classes today. Students learned about the opportunities offered by the National Guard, such as tuition exemption and enlistment benefits including the opportunity to make money while still in high school. Students were given background information on MREs (Meals Ready to Eat). This was followed by a creative competition between teams to create a meal using only the items provided in the MRE. Because the military is focused on team building, the classes were broken into random groups to make sure they worked with different people other than their normal “friend” group. The teams were judged on taste and creativity/appearance. Soldiers must be creative when eating MREs and students were encouraged to do the same.
Gregoire said, “The activity helped build companionship and brought the class closer together….they were focused and everyone was included as each person had a job to do. Students were excited and did a great job making many healthy and creative dishes. “The Louisiana National Guard is focused on leadership and success, and that was obvious in Mrs. Hill’s class today.”
There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer.
You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
Help with Medicare is available at medicare.gov or 1-800-MEDICARE.
For Affordable Care Act:
Compare plans and quality ratings at healthcare.gov, where you can also enroll.
This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners. Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information.
After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596. You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
