Techs Kgoale.jpg

The impact senior midfielder Nomvula Kgoale had on the Louisiana Tech women’s soccer team this past season was recognized again on Thursday as she was selected to the United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division I Women’s All-South Region Team.
Kgoale was one of only four midfielders from Conference USA to make all-region, chosen to the second team after being a key reason why LA Tech lost only three matches all season to go 14-3-5 and qualify for the C-USA Tournament for the fourth straight year.

in
Moore, Byron 2016.jpg

Question: My mother’s friend is trying to get her into some business deal. I think it has to do with selling something, and she’s got mom convinced that she’s going to get rich by just making a few phone calls to friends and neighbors.

Here’s your choice: You can start receiving monthly payouts at the qualifying age of 62 like many people. Or you can hold out for a bigger payout down the road.
