Hankins named to British studies advisory board

in

Jeffery Hankins, an associate professor of history at Louisiana Tech University, is one of the few members of the British Scholar Society, a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to Britain’s interactions in the world from the 17th century to the present, to concentrate on British history during the 1600s and 1700s.
“Most scholars write about Great Britain during the 19th century and 20th century,” Hankins said. “I write about after the American colonies split from the British Empire, when the empire really got going in settling other places such as India and China.”

If students don’t learn to read effectively they will have trouble throughout their school career, which will then spill over into the rest of their lives.
Beginning later this month, more than 80 volunteers will be headed to local schools to help ensure Lincoln Parish second graders have a fighting chance at achieving their full potential. Approximately 40 students, who have been specially chosen by their principals, will spend 30 minutes per week with these volunteers reading.
