Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Thursday morning.
Remember that today, flu shots are available in the Quad from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The vaccination clinic, organized by the College of Applied and Natural Sciences, will also be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 21. On both days, Green Clinic/TechCare will provide vaccinations for $20.
Take advantage of this opportunity to get your flu shot in between classes. It’s an easy way to help our campus community stay healthy and safe this fall and winter.
Tech Family achievements
Tuesday, I had the opportunity to participate in two wonderful ceremonies that help show how Louisiana Tech is poised for future growth and innovation.
The first allowed our University to formalize an agreement with Grambling State University that will provide greater opportunity for accounting students throughout our area. The memorandum of understanding I signed with GSU President Rick Gallot will allow GSU accounting undergraduates accelerated entry into Louisiana Tech’s Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program.
Tech’s concurrent MAcc option allows accounting majors with a 3.2 GPA and less than 30 hours of coursework remaining to begin taking graduate-level courses while still an undergraduate. Through this agreement, Grambling students meeting these requirements can also begin the program concurrently.
Our partnership will prepare our shared students to sit for the CPA exam and begin successful careers even sooner. Together, we will help many students achieve their academic goals, and I know they will then make a positive impact on our region and state.
Special thanks to Dean Chris Martin and Provost Terry McConathy for making this a reality.
The second event was the commissioning ceremony for Lt. Col. Chris Ritter into the United States Space Force.
Col. Ritter is one of a small number of officers commissioned into the newest branch of our armed forces. He brings a wealth of experience to his new position, and I am excited to see the possibilities this will help create for our students who are involved with the Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps.
Loss of a special member of the Tech Family
We awaken this morning saddened by the loss of our friend and Tech legend Fred Dean. Fred and I were classmates at Louisiana Tech and I enjoyed following him every Saturday as he and fellow Bulldogs defeated foe after foe while winning national football championships in the early 1970s. Fred went on to play football with the San Diego Chargers and the San Francisco 49ers where he was dominant as a defensive lineman, and ultimately recognized as an NFL Hall of Famer. He achieved so much because of his big heart and passion for the game. He also had a big heart for Louisiana Tech and for our community. Our prayers are for his family this morning
