Not a good story for state higher ed
Once upon a time, working at a university in Lincoln Parish, or the state of Louisiana for that matter, made for a good, comfortable living for those who had worked hard, paid their dues and prepared for a good future.
The story was once non-fictional. Now it seems like a fairy tale, something that couldn’t be true, not in this day and age.
And for the time being, at least, there will be no happy ending for our area universities.
That’s not to say they won’t make it, because solid leadership at both schools should have Louisiana Tech and Grambling State poised to ride out the challenging times ahead.
