Kindness Rocks

Students with St. Landry Parish JAG Program presented Kindness Rocks to Mayor Julius Alsandor for the City of Opelousas at a special gathering held Friday morning at Le Vieux Village.  Over 100 JAG students from Northwest High, North Central High School, Opelousas High School and Opelousas Junior High teamed up to paint a total of 300 inspirational rocks in recognition of the City’s 300 anniversary.  The Kindness Rocks movement is a national movement of creative inspiration that believes that finding just the right message of inspiration at just the right time might change everything. The rocks are painted or colored with inspirational messages or a fun picture and then hidden around for others to find.  The local project was organized by St. Landry Parish JAG Instructor Susan Mouton and the Celebrate Opelousas 300 Committee.
