Louisiana Tech’s Counseling and Career Services recently hosted a Career Fair and drew a record number of companies to the event.
One hundred thirty-seven companies and between 700 and 800 students attended the career fair as companies hoped to attract the university’s soon-to-be graduates, while students hoped to find employment.
Ron Cathey, director of Counseling and Career Services, said he had not expected this many companies to attend.
A political squabble is leaving Louisiana school districts with their hands tied.
“What I don’t want to see is a chess game played by politicians where our children have become the pawns,” said Rep. Rob Shadoin. “It’s time for them to stop playing games through the press and trying to one-up each other in the media. They need to sit down at a table — face-to-face — and resolve this.”
A year ago, Kathleen Tortu-Bowles began the search for two dogs that are close to her heart, Buddy and Bailey.
“Many months ago, there were two dogs surrendered to an animal shelter in Oklahoma,” she said. “They were surrendered because their owner couldn’t keep them. They are a bonded pair and their names are Buddy and Bailey.”
However, it took a while for her to be able to find a rescue that could accommodate the pair.
“Unfortunately, there was not one rescue who would step up for Buddy and Bailey, so my two friends and I took it upon us to make sure they would be safe,” she said.
