Two Louisiana Tech University student organizations have a passion for making Ruston a little greener.
Kendall Belcher, a senior member of the National Society of Black Engineers, and Nicholette Powell, a sophomore member of the Society of Women Engineers, teamed up, along with other members of their organizations, to get a recycling program started on Tech’s campus last year.

In the post-Austin Ginn era, that’s exactly what Head Coach Ben Haddox and his assistants had in mind for the 2012 season at Cedar Creek High School.
Now a walk-on at Louisiana Tech University and recipient of a recent scout team Player of the Week award, Ginn was one of the state’s top running backs the past several years for the Cougars.
He gained more than 1,000 yards in 2011 while helping Cedar Creek win nine games and rank among the Top 10 teams in the Class 1A Louisiana Sports Writers Association poll.
