Note: This is the fourth part of a six-part series highlighting Louisiana Tech students and their internship experiences.
Louisiana Tech University student Chelsey Martin knew majoring in chemical engineering was the right choice for her — she just wasn’t sure what she wanted to do.
Martin, a senior from Logan, Ohio, decided then to take an internship with Ashland, Inc., at the Catlettsburg Refinery in Kentucky in hopes of answering this fateful decision. What she found on her first day however, was that she had even more questions to ask.

in

LAKE CHARLES — Freshman striker Kathryn Sloan continued her goal-making ability, scoring in the sixth minute to give Louisiana Tech an early lead, but McNeese State rallied to score three consecutive goals and eventually tallied a 4-2 win over the Lady Techsters on Sunday afternoon at Cowgirl Field.
“McNeese State outworked us,” said head coach Kevin Sherry. “Their hard work deserved something from the game. Our young legs couldn’t match their work rate. All these tough road games will help this young team mature, but it will take time.”

Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

I’ll be the first to admit that in recent years I’ve become disillusioned with many forms of our government.
And I wasn’t shocked by the recent resignation of U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, who attributed his move to the fact that “Rather than producing tangible solutions to better this nation, partisan posturing has created a legislative standstill. Unfortunately, I do not foresee this environment to change anytime soon. I have decided not to seek re-election, so that another may put forth ideas on how to break through the gridlock and bring about positive change for our country.”
