Learning outside campus

Working through Habitat, the students picked a person who will benefit, someone truly in need. This year’s project is helping to put a roof over the head of a single mother of three whose house is in deplorable condition and whose income working two jobs is not enough to address the problems, and there are many.

Urge young people to get involved

The habiTECH program is only one example of students giving back to the community that houses their university. A group of fifth-year architecture students are helping to build a Habitat for Humanity house for a Ruston family in desperate need.
In doing so, they are not only gaining hands-on work experience, they’re also leaving a legacy in the city they called home during their college years.

And more.

Dwyer was here, there and everywhere for Cedar Creek.
He finished the regular season as the top scorer in the state, regardless of classification, with a total of 188 points on 29 touchdowns, a dozen extra point kicks and a two-point conversion.

Reflect on King's goals, vision for U.S.
