Hundred of locals came out Tuesday to show their support for Grambling State University and for the new Distinguished Leadership Award recipients.
GSU President Frank Pogue opened the third annual luncheon by saying everyone was present to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
“Grambling State University is committed to the tenets of diversity and civility,” he said. “We are pausing to recognize Dr. King. Dr. King taught us to honor peace, humanity and kindness. He championed civility, fairness, tolerance and civic responsibility.”

Pogue also had a grand announcement for those in attendance — the official naming of the new GSU Fighting Tiger.
The 13-foot tiger statue was erected in late 2013, and Pogue said he had never seen such a thing.
“I had never seen students and other people so eager to take a photo with something before it was even put up,” he said. “We had 150 students enter the naming competition. Of those students we narrowed it down to the Top 10.”
Pogue said from there students voted on what the official name of the Fighting Tiger would be.

in
Arrington, Briana.jpg

I’m of the opinion that society today has about as much depth as a kiddie pool. This year, so far, has been proving me right. 2014: Year of the Vapid.
For those of you who don’t know the word “vapid” means shallow. According to the Google online dictionary vapid is an adjective that offers “nothing that is stimulating or challenging.” Synonyms for vapid include insipid, uninspired, colorless, uninteresting, feeble, flat, dull, boring, tedious, tired, unexciting, uninspiring, unimaginative, lifeless, tame, vacuous, bland or trite.

Emmanuel Pre-K: Rolling in the new year

article1 C.jpg

Our new year is rolling right along and it’s already February! January was filled to the brim with winter activities. Our three and four year olds enjoyed a fun filled trip to our wonderful library where we were read books about snowmen. It was great fun to make our own snowman to take home with us.
Our discovery centers are filled with winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves. Our children have loved dressing in winter attire and having their pictures made for their take home diaries. The ice and “snow” in our water and sand tables was a really big hit.
