Crews began the demolition of the old Louisiana Tech College of Administration and Business building Saturday as they knocked down walls on the north side of the facility. The demolition process is expected to be completed sometime around April and plans are to leave the area as a landscaped green space.
Ruston business owner Ralph Lawrence “Larry” Hott recently attended the Louisiana Home Builders Association Board of Directors Installation and Awards Banquet in Lafayette, where he was the recipient of the “Associate of the Year” for the Louisiana Home Builders Association for 2011. Upon completion of his term of the state associate vice president, he became a state life director.
Hott followed in his father’s footsteps, working in the homebuilding industry. He began as an associate in the cabinet business in Shreveport, becoming an active local member of the Northwest Louisiana Home Builders Association in 1989. He served on the local board as a state director and was elected as Associate of the Year in 1992.
