April is a lot of things: National Facial Protection Month, International Guitar Month, National Cable Month, National Poetry Month and National Garden Month. Believe it or not, many more celebrations could be listed, but they would not be relevant to today’s article. What is pertinent to this article is that April is National Youth Sports Safety Month.
Note: This is the final part of a six-part series highlighting Louisiana Tech University students and their internship experiences.
For Louisiana Tech University graduate student Zachary Voss, knowing the right people helped him land the right internship.
Voss, who is working on his master’s in kinesiology, worked as a strength coach with the Minnesota Twins minor league baseball team this summer. He said he received the internship partly because of his connection with Tech.
Two members of Louisiana Tech’s Bass Fishing Club have reeled in some serious cash.
Sophomore agriculture business major Peyton Igo and sophomore construction engineering major Matthew Loetscher placed first at the National Guard Forrest L. Wood College Fishing Southern Conference event at Sam Rayburn Reservoir in Lufkin, Texas.
The duo caught five bass that weighed in at 15 pounds, 8 ounces. Igo and Loetscher won $5,000 and said the money will go back into the club account.
The April 11 meeting of the Happy Gardeners Society met in the home of Cathy Downs with Dianne Jefcoat and Joan Couch as co-hostesses. President Couch called the meeting to order and Magdi Ferguson read the prayer. Couch led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance. The Treasurer’s Report was given by Ann Jones. Dimes for the Dixie and Domestic Abuse Resistance Team donations will be made before next month when the new treasurer takes over.
