LSU SHREVEPORT’S DR. KENNA FRANKLIN HONORED WITH 2021 WILLIE BURTON HISTORIAN AWARD

Shreveport, LA—LSU Shreveport Assistant Provost of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement Dr. Kenna Franklin was awarded the 2021 Willie Burton Historian Award at the 9th Annual State of Black Shreveport Symposium & Economic Summit. The honor is named after the late Willie Burton, a local historian, Southern University Shreveport Louisiana (SUSLA) professor, Caddo School Board member, and leader for the African American community.

Dr. Franklin, who also serves as an Associate Professor of History and Social Sciences at LSUS, was recognized with the award for her contributions to the local African American community. The theme for this year’s symposium aimed to open the conversation of communication gaps between Generation X and Millennials.

“A very sincere thank you is extended to all the organizers and supporters of the 9th Annual State of Black Shreveport,” Dr. Franklin said. “I am both humbled and honored to receive this award- not just for myself, but for all those whose names appear in invisible ink. For what I know for sure is that awards like this one go to little ‘i’s’ and great big ‘We’s’. It has been my pleasure to work on various community projects that have allowed underrepresented minorities to enroll and thrive in higher education. I was fortunate enough to work with Mr. Willie Burton and see firsthand the dedication he had for his students. Receiving such an award motivates me to do more for the students and community in which I live and serve.”

Founder of the State of Black Shreveport community group, Lynn D. Cawthorne, presented the award and mentioned that each of the annual awards are intentionally named after people who have gone before us and paved the way for positive change for minority groups.

“What we try to do annually in this community with the State of Black Shreveport, is to award and recognize the unsung heroes—people who are doing things in this community who may not always be recognized on a broader scale,” Cawthorne said. “We want to let them know that in the Black Community, we do appreciate them, and their work is dynamic. We give this award to an African American person who is walking in the traditions of Mr. Burton and falling into the continuity of the history of the African American community.”

Willie Burton is well-known for his historical impact in the local African American community, which includes publications such as On the Black Side of Shreveport: A History. He also left an indelible mark at another area university, Southern University at Shreveport. His son, Willie “Scooter Man” Burton Jr., hopes to continue his father’s legacy and aims to republish Burton Senior’s work in a a digital format.

LSUS COUNSELING SERVICES ADDRESSES STUDENT MENTAL HEALTH CHALLENGES WITH PODCAST

Shreveport, LA—LSU Shreveport continues to play its part in the nationwide effort to see mental health improvement in college students. The university’s Counseling Services department recently added another way to connect to students and the wider community with a podcast titled, Say It Out Loud: Tackling Tough Topics Together, available for streaming on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

Director of Counseling Services, Angie Pellerin, had been toying with the idea for a couple of years. She believes that talking openly about challenging topics breaks the mainstream perception that asking for help is worthy of shame.

“With many of the life challenges each of us face as human beings, we often feel like we need to them face alone,” Pellerin said. “One of the hardest things for many of us, and for young students in particular, is to overcome the shame of asking for help. Talking openly about things we often hide from the outside world, and giving these things a voice, can bring them out into the open and let people know that they are not the only ones struggling.”

The podcast features the Counseling Services team and a variety of guest speakers including current students, alumni, faculty, and staff members. The topics range from student success tips to dealing with non-academic issues such as political stress and body image.

Alyssa Garza, who recently made local news as the university’s first Certified Peer Educator, hopes the podcast will open the floor to topics that students already have on their minds but may not want to vocalize.

“Most topics are submitted by students anonymously, which helps us address what students are thinking and may not be comfortable coming forward and asking,” Garza said. “With open conversation going on about mental health, we can normalize opening up and talk about the challenges surrounding mental health. Once they are out in the open, students can then work together to identify what helps them manage or cope with these challenges. With more people tackling mental health, the more positive outcomes we will see in students in relation to their mental health.”

Twelve episodes are available for streaming and more are on the way. The Counseling Services team wants the podcast to be a source of comfort, encouragement, and empowerment for listeners within the LSUS community, and beyond.

“My hope with this podcast is that students, and any listeners, can know that they are not alone,” Pellerin said. “And of course, beyond that, for our students, they can feel encouraged to keep pushing toward their own growth and achieve their goals.”

The podcast is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Google Podcasts.
