Reneau needs to stick around

At the top of the list of the strong points the report found at the Ruston school was its leadership — especially that provided by Reneau. The report suggested the state of Louisiana use all means at its disposal to retain Reneau as president.
“We believe that it is important that President Reneau remain in office for at least the next several years and recommend that the state and Board of Supervisors provide sufficient incentives to retain him.”

It's good to have Malone back home

To say that Malone has been blessed is an understatement: the athletically gifted NBA legend was named one of the 50 greatest players ever and was rewarded financially for his efforts and hard work. It would have been easy for Malone to rest on his laurels after his playing days were over and do as so many former athletes have done: wind up in the news for all of the wrong reasons.
But Malone has been different. Since his return to his roots after his retirement from the NBA he has been a model citizen, continuing to work, while at the same time enjoying the fruit of his labor.

Education leaders unveil vision

“Many of the jobs of the future will require some kind of post-secondary education,” Levy said, adding that the percentage is likely to be around 60 percent. “We will continue to nurture our four-year schools, but will be making them leaner and more focused on their mission, which no longer include providing remedial courses for those students who are not prepared for a four-year college.”
Levy, also a CABL board member, said the key is to strike a balance — making community and technical schools easier to get into, while tightening the restrictions for the traditional universities.

Barry Sanders, Tech spirit put big kick in Roaf event

One of pro football’s all-time greatest running backs showed up with long-time friend and ex-Bulldogs’ great William Roaf at the CHAMPS celebration reception that kicked off the latter’s annual fund-raising golf tournament that will be held at the Olde Oakes course here today.
“He’s still so quick that he got in here and hardly anybody noticed,” quipped one Tech fan whose mouth went wide-open when the Pro Football Hall of Famer walked into a large meeting room just before 9 p.m.

Idea House still making the news

Even though homeowner Davison has replaced some of the furniture which was sold during the open house, much of the décor remains the same as it was during the months when thousands of visitors from across the country came to see the best in housing ideas for that year.
Even though the run for the official showing of the house is long since over, people may still seek out a glimpse of the address when in the area and the project continues to bring credit to the Choudrant development and the entire community.

Getting out the red pencil

•Do not overdo the introduction. In describing the geographic distribution of her students and their work I originally used the word “global” and in the end I decided on “wide reach.” In the context of the piece, the meaning conveyed was the same.

Malone gives $350k to Tech

The Mailman delivered on both accounts.
“Too many times, you go to a press conference and you leave thinking, ‘Now that was pretty boring and not much to it, so I wanted to lighten things up and yet let the folks know that the things we want to do to help the school should be taken seriously,” Malone told The Ruston Daily Leader early this morning. “Hopefully, I accomplished that yesterday.
“From what I’ve heard already, I think everybody enjoyed it and yet also realized how important were the things that we discussed.”
