Fall 2014 Commencement and Tyler's First Win

Nov 16, 2014 | Reflection

Saturday, November 15, 2014, was a big day for Louisiana Tech University. It began in the morning with Fall Commencement with Dr. Phillip Rozeman as commencement speaker and 300 graduates crossing the stage. Later in the day, Kathy and I drove over to Nacogdoches to watch the Lady Techsters tip off the 2014 season and head coach Tyler Summitt tip off his head coaching career against the Stephen F. Austin Lady Jacks. Here are a few photos from Fall Quarter 2014 Commencement:
