The Louisiana Tech University Senate is proud to present its 3rd Annual Future of Ruston Forum from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., April 3 in the University Hall Auditorium.
This year’s theme is “Retaining Excellence” and will feature presentations from Ruston Mayor Dan Hollingsworth, Louisiana Tech University President Dr. Les Guice, Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. Jim King, Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce President Judy Copeland, and City of Ruston Economic Development Administrator Kristi Lumpkin.
The event is free and the members of the local and campus communities are invited to attend.
“The University Senate believes that the Ruston community and the Tech family need to be well informed about issues concerning our area,” said Dr. Julie Holmes, committee chair for the Future of Ruston Forum and an assistant professor in Louisiana Tech’s College of Education. “That’s why we started the forum three years ago. We hope that the general public as well as faculty and students will come and learn about topics of interest to all. Participants also have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenters to gain information about issues of personal interest to them.”
The evening will begin with an informal meet and greet session with the guest speakers and light refreshments provided courtesy of Aramark. Following the meet and greet, the guest speakers will present on how the community and the university are working together to retain excellence for the citizens of Ruston. Following the presentations, there will be an opportunity for attendees to pose questions and offer comments to the speakers.
