Grambling’s Juneteenth parade will have two grand marshals this year.
Eula Woodard and Robertine Malone have been selected as the grand marshals.
Woodard was Grambling’s first First Lady. She is the widow of Grambling’s first Mayor B.T. Woodard Sr. She recently celebrated her 100th birthday.
Malone is a current resident of Ruston, who was born in Grambling more than 80 years ago. She is the sister of B.T. Woodard Sr.
Louisiana Tech University students, faculty and staff now have the ability to use their Tech Express campus debit and ID cards to pay for goods and services provided by a number of merchants in and around Ruston.
The university has partnered with “UGryd,” a division of the CBORD Group, Inc., to provide local retailers with the technology and support needed to accept the campus-issued cards as a secure form of payment. Tech Express accounts are pre-paid accounts that can be accessed via the student or employee ID card for certain campus goods and services.
