Tools for Schools is back on the road once again, and this time Dave Baker and Anna Olivier are at Comeaux High School.

"We’re here at Comeaux High School to deliver some printer ink to Jack Franks class on behalf of KATC and the Jim Olivier Family of Companies," Olivier says.

Franks teaches a class called Entrepreneurship at Comeaux. In that class, students are required to take a national exam in order to pass the class.

He sasys that if a student does not pass the test, they are given a coaching report in order to prepare for their re-take. Franks tells KATC that these reports are generated frequently and they use a good amount of ink.

"What we use ink for in the class is like to use to print out our information that we need, papers that are important, projects, homework anything like that," says Madison Goins, a graduating junior.

In Franks' request, he mentioned not having the money in his budget to purchase more ink.

"I requested some printer ink because I’m constantly printing reports for students and the ink is necessary. Without it they don’t get the reports. Tools for Schools is one of the most generous programs in Acadiana. It is much needed. Unfortunately, a lot of schools do not have the funds necessary to get certain supplies and Tools for Schools comes in very handy and we don’t take ’em for granted," Franks says.

Students are excited to get a helping hand in printing their important documents.

"Coach Franks is the nicest, most coolest teacher that I’ve ever met," says Jace Champagne, another graduating junior.
