BATON ROUGE — Last week, the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) Board of Supervisors announced the selection of Barbara M. Hanson as Chancellor of Louisiana Delta Community College (LDCC). The announcement was made during a Special Meeting of the board.
“My colleagues and I were very impressed with all of the finalists. However, it was Dr. Hanson’s unique and diverse background combined with her 25 plus years of leadership in higher education that led us to believe she is the right person at the right time for LDCC,” Michael Murphy, LCTCS board chair, said.
Dogs who want to take a dip in the water will find their wonderland this weekend at Ruston Municipal Pool.
For the third year in a row, Ruston Parks and Recreation Department will host its annual K-9 Pool Party for local residents and their furry friends.
RPAR Recreation Supervisor Ashlynn Shell said dogs of all types that are current on shots are welcome at the pool on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is a can or bag of dog food or doggie treats, which will be donated to Ruston Animal Shelter and 4 Paws Rescue Inc.
Two men were arrested over the weekend in separate cases win which the Ruston Police Department said residents assisted them by calling in tips.
Deputy Chief Clint Williams said both incidents were reported to the police department by citizens.
“These incidents continue to show the importance of citizens being observant and reporting suspected criminal activity as soon as possible,” Williams said. “The Ruston Police Department appreciates these citizens and their willingness to get involved in making a difference in their community.”
