Dozens of faculty, staff to retire

Daniels has not always worked in the comptroller’s office, though she has spent the majority of her time at Tech in her current position.
“I started out in the College of Life Sciences and worked there for 10 years, and then I was a cashier in the comptroller’s office for a couple of years,” she said. “I will miss the people the most, absolutely. This is an office of 22 to 25 people, and we’ve shared births, deaths, marriages — we’re all family. There’s not a lot of turnover in this office, and we all share a history.
“I enjoy what I do. I truly do.”

All suffer growing pains

Becca, my youngest cousin, stepped across the stage and ended her high school career this past Saturday in Bossier City. In the fall, she will head for the University of Louisiana at Monroe where she will learn, as all of us did, how to make her way on her own. I know that she has countless all-nighters, endless trips to the store and much more in her future. And I’m proud.
But the trouble is that in my head she’s still three years old. She is forever that bright-eyed little girl who visited my grandma’s house sometimes sucking her thumb as she took her place in Aunt Susie’s lap.

Robinson museum a winner

During his 50-plus years at the helm of Grambling’s football program, Robinson took his Tigers all around the world, serving as a goodwill ambassador for the game, Louisiana and his home.
Efforts have been underway for some time to raise the funding needed to create a museum that would chronicle the life story of Robinson and his effect on north Louisiana. But like many issues in our state, there were a mass of roadblocks that had to be cleared before approval was finally granted to provide the funding needed to get the museum started.

Cougars show off new look

The varsity Cougar performance included eighteen minute games against St. Mary and Holy Savior Menard, while the junior varsity lined up twice against Menard.
“We’ve got sixty kids out for football for the first time ever,” Aldredge continued. “And this is the first time ever in my career that I’ve tried playing kids one way. But while there may be times when somebody will have to go both ways, this is the way we’re going to go.”
The Cougars showed their mettle in the first showdown of the night, getting the best of St. Mary’s and finishing 20-6.

Nostalgia reigns supreme

I’m the same way. I pour over the stats on the Internet making predictions on what kind of numbers a player will have at the end of the season based on what he’s done to a particular point in the season.
I am, in the truest sense of the word, a baseball fanatic. I collect baseball cards, bobble head dolls, autographed baseballs and photographs. If you want to know anything about Mickey Mantle’s career or the history of the New York Yankees, just ask.

Commencement set for Saturday

For business management major Carter, though, her time away from Tech will not be long.
“I’m coming back here to grad school, so it’ll be a short reprieve,” she said. “I got accepted to the master’s program, and I should finish in a year.”

“I’ll miss my friends,” she said. “They’re graduating and leaving.”
