Boatright, T Scott 13.jpg

Laughter through tears.
It was something I experienced a lot over the past weekend — something many journalism types from all over the country experienced as they paid tribute to one the field’s giants — late Louisiana Tech journalism department chair Wiley Hilburn.
Scores of Tech graduates returned to Ruston over the weekend to pay their last respects to Hilburn, who died Thursday at the age of 75. All for a need to give a final tribute to the man who formulated the careers of those students who passed through the halls of Keeny Hall to learn from a legend.
