Last night City Year Baton Rouge hosted our annual School House Rock gala presented by Raising Cane’s to celebrate our impact and commitment to keep Baton Rouge students in school and on track to succeed. We were privileged to honor United States Senator Mary Landrieu and Lane Grigsby, Founder and Chairman, Cajun Industries for their support of City Year and belief in our 62 AmeriCorps members proudly serving in 4 schools across East Baton Rouge Parish.
