Thousands of Lincoln Parish residents will receive a notice from the tax assessor’s office in the next week or two.
Parish Tax Assessor Pam Jones said she will send out approximately 3,000 notices for re-assessments on oil and gas wells and business personal property.
“The law says if it’s not a reassessment year then you only have to send notices to those (whose property value) increase by 15 percent or more,” Jones said. “In the case of (business) personal property, I choose to mail them every year, because (the value) changes every year.”
The Emerging Scholars Program at the University of Louisiana at Monroe recently held its annual banquet to honor freshman and sophomore students. The program targets motivated students seeking to perform research and become “junior colleagues” to ULM professors.
“I congratulate our scholars and thank the faculty and staff for facilitating this challenging program,” said ULM President Dr. Nick J. Bruno.
“Allowing our students to conduct research with our faculty provides them with a very rich and rewarding academic experience.”
Each semester, students from all of ULM’s academic colleges are selected for this prestigious program. During the 2012 calendar year, nearly 120 students participated.
This number includes 41 students who participated through ULM’s Howard Hughes Medical Institute Lab Program.
Emerging Scholars began in the spring of 2003 as a means to bring together outstanding students and dedicated faculty members, who work on a variety of projects.
Louisiana Tech has announced the names of students on its fall quarter President’s and Dean’s honor lists.
Students whose names are followed by an asterisk earned recognition as members of the President’s Honor List. That distinction signifies achievement of at least a 3.8 academic grade point average on a minimum of nine semester hours completed (100-level or higher), with no grade lower than a B.
To be eligible for the Dean’s Honor Lists, a student is required to earn at least a 3.5 academic grade point average with no grade lower than a C on a minimum of nine semester hours completed (100-level or higher).
