Before I Graduate

This was another full week of activities on the Louisiana Tech campus. I took some enjoyable walks around campus to chat with students, faculty and staff.  We also held numerous year-end events on campus, only a few in which I could participate. I also had the opportunity to thank some people for their contributions to Louisiana Tech – our student leaders and our faculty & staff.

I love this time of the year. It is bittersweet as we see those who have been such a vital part of our institution move on to the next phase of their lives. But I also reflect upon how much better we are as an institution because of their service to Tech.

Here is my week in pictures:
