Jimmy D. Long Sr. Louisiana School of Math, Science, and the Arts is the new official name of the Natchitoches high school, as the governor signed the bill adding the name of the late state lawmaker to the school’s title. Delhi Senator Francis Thompson authored the legislation. He says it’s not a big change, but it’s an important change.

A proposal to change the name of the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts has won final legislative passage. The measure changes the name to the Jimmy D. Long Sr. Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts in honor of the late state lawmaker who established the school. The bill was amended to allow the original name on diplomas and transcripts, which Franklin Representative Sam Jones says is a good compromise.
