A 'standing O' for Reneau
Reneau had spent more than an hour talking intimately with a group of 50 or more employees of the university about the impending cuts planned for Tech as its share of cuts to state higher education.
He’d just finished telling the group about how their pay will suffer — both in direct pay reductions and furloughs — and how every facet of Louisiana Tech will feel the heat.
And they gave Reneau an ovation anyway.
You just can’t say enough about all of the things that kind of symbolic gesture means in a few hundred words, but I’ll try.
