Each year the Department of Education nominates six schools for the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program award, and this year one of those nominations includes an elementary school in Sulphur, Louisiana.

Vincent Settlement Elementary in Sulphur won the Blue Ribbon Award in 2008, and seven years later the students and staff are thrilled to be nominated again. The schools English Language Arts teacher, Jill Fills, tells KPLC that being nominated again is a big achievement.

"You always set your expectations high and that is where Vincent Settlement has always done our thing. We're striving to be the best no matter where they start."
