A group of young men and women are on the path to success after graduating from the Bossier Sheriff's Young Marines.

Monday night the 22 students from Class 29 took part in a special graduation ceremony at the Viking Dr. substation.

The recruits spent their entire week of spring break in training, conducting leadership skills, physical training, teamwork, discipline and confidence building skills. 

Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington encouraged the new Young Marines to take what they learned over the past week in training and be positive examples for other youth at school, home and in the community. 

Graduates of Bossier Sheriff's Young Marines Class 29 are:  Ashlyn Boyd, Trey Catts, Samuel Chambers, Jacob Clarkston, Whitlee Fegett, Mitchell Hayes, Hart Jones, Destiny Knox, Isaiah Knox, Brayden Lampkin, Stephen Lanclos, Lainey McCorkhill, Micajah McGehee, Zachary Moore, Christian  Morris, Kevin Mulrenin, Chandler Sweeney, Christopher Thomas, Cody Thomas, Jarrod Toca, Kristopher Travis and Brian Williams.
