Faculty from Louisiana Tech University’s biological sciences and biomedical engineering programs teamed up with art faculty from the School of Design to provide students with a unique opportunity to use their talents to promote Tech’s New Frontiers in Biomedical Research lecture series.
The apex of this interdisciplinary experience was the April 14 opening of an art exhibit at the Tech Enterprise Center to showcase creative works of the 14 students taking part in the collaboration through Associate Art Professor Nick Bustamante’s ART 320 Digital Painting class.
Lazarius “Pep” Levingston recently visited The Boys and Girls Clubs of North Central Louisiana and spent time with some of their teens. Levingston, a former Ruston High School, Louisiana State University and National Football League standout, gave the kids a powerful message.
“Don’t Settle for less than your very best. There is more to life than just settling for the norm. Push yourself to be more, to do more, to have more.”
The Boys and Girls Club serves close to 40 teens at their new Teen Center located at the Bridge Community Church Downtown Campus.
On Saturday, I had an awesome surprise, thanks to a gift from Maggie and John Brown, of Dubach. Maggie’s letter also is a keeper. I remember her parents, the Edwin Greens, well. They were special friends of my parents, although younger.
