After a 50-year relationship with Louisiana Tech University — both as a student and an educator — and 26 years as Louisiana Tech’s president Daniel D. Reneau announced today that he will retire from the university, effective June 30, 2013.
The announcement was made during Louisiana Tech’s fall faculty and staff meeting in Howard Auditorium. Joined by family, friends and colleagues, Reneau reflected on how far Tech has come during his tenure as president, recapped the past year’s achievements, and talked about what the future holds for him and the university.
The Northern Louisiana Reading Council held their fall conference at the Lincoln Parish Library on Saturday. The organization holds two conferences each year, and Conference Chair Vicki Brown said the event is designed to help the organization with its goals.
Newly awarded funds to Grambling State and Louisiana Tech Universities will be instrumental in the success of both the students and the universities.
The Workforce and Innovation for a Stronger Economy awarded GSU a total of $778,910 that will be used in categories such as scholarships, workforce development, a Center for Excellence in Cyber Security and faculty support.
Interim Provost and Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs Janet Guyden said the university is very excited about the funds.
