Growing up in Michigan and playing in the marching band all throughout school, tailgating was completely foreign to one Louisiana Tech professor.
Julie Holmes, an assistant professor of education, first moved to Ruston in October 1991.
“Ruston felt like home,” she said. “I had come down to visit after teaching in the Miami Beach area for a few years after I had gotten my bachelor’s degree. And it was just a good fit. Ruston felt like the place I had grown up.”
The GSU Tiger Men’s Fellowship Group donated boxes of socks for men, women, boys and girls to the Christian Community Center in Ruston on Aug. 30. The group’s next meeting will be on Sept. 29 at Ryan’s. For more information call 247-6962.
