Gallot solid choice as GSU president

The “revolving door” will hopefully stop spinning soon at Grambling State University as former state legislator Rick Gallot was chosen to be the new president of GSU.

The pick came 26 days after Willie Larkin, former GSU president, resigned from his post after a one-year tenure.
GSU has had 10 presidents in 25 years.

GSU initiatives benefit parish

Sixteen years ago, Congress created the Delta Regional Authority to improve economic opportunities in its eight-state region by helping build communities and creating jobs so as to better the lives of the region’s 10 million people.

Because Louisiana is part of the delta region, Lincoln Parish residents stand to benefit from the authority’s programs. One of those programs came a bit closer to home recently, when Grambling State University was selected to be part of authority’s HBCU Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Initiative.

Bergeron, Nancy 2014.jpg

For more than 40 years, I’ve listened to police scanners 24/7, 365 days a year.
It’s a practice I picked up from my Great Aunt Betty. Aunt Betty lived alone in a second story apartment in an older section of Shreveport.
