GONZALES, La. (BRPROUD) – Tuesday was a special day for one educator in Ascension Parish.
Cindy Peno was given the distinction of “Honorary Sheriff for the second quarter of 2021.”
This was made official by Ascension Parish Sheriff Bobby Webre with the handing over of a certificate.
A picture of that certificate can be found below.
Julie St. Pierre founded Bizzy Bunch with Peno 23 years ago.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office provided this description of Bizzy Bunch:
The goal of Bizzy Bunch is to offer a hands-on approach to language arts readiness and math problem solving in a cheerful and loving environment with an emphasis on interactive social behavior. The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office over the years have participated in Halloween Safety talks, general police and 9-1-1 safety talks, and helping the department raise funds during our annual Christmas Crusade program, as well as raise funds for St. Jude year after year.
Peno is going off into the sunset after this year, let’s thank this educator for all that she has done for the community and wish her well in retirement.
