Mrs. Supriya Jindal, wife of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, is scheduled to visit Louisiana Tech University on Wednesday, April 1 as part of her state-wide campaign to promote science and math education in Louisiana’s primary and secondary schools.

Mrs. Jindal plans to visit with students at A.E. Phillips Laboratory School between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. where she will talk about the importance of science and math education in developing Louisiana’s next generation of science and technology leaders.

“We are delighted to have Supriya on the Louisiana Tech campus again,” said Louisiana Tech President Dan Reneau. “She is very bright and articulate and is certainly a wonderful role model for our A.E. Phillips’ students.”

A.E. Phillips, located on the Louisiana Tech University campus, serves kindergarten through eighth-grade students in a wholesome, challenging environment that emphasizes collaborative and innovative learning amongst administrators, teachers, parents, and pupils.

Dr. Carynn Wiggins, principal of A.E. Phillips, is also excited about the visit from Louisiana’s First Lady.

“The A. E. Phillips Laboratory School family is delighted that Mrs. Jindal has chosen to visit our school. We share her commitment to making education for the children of Louisiana a top priority and look forward to sharing with her the innovative best practice strategies we use on a daily basis.”

Mrs. Jindal commitment to education led to the establishment of the Supriya Jindal Foundation for Louisiana’s Children: an effort to harness the power of technology in Louisiana classrooms, to emphasize the importance of science and math, and to help develop the Louisiana workforce of tomorrow.
