The FNA Drew Brees event on campus last week was a huge success. Shout out to Mr. Brees, Brandon Beard, Jackie Brock, LSUS Foundation, LSUS Events Management, LSU Shreveport Chancellor Larry Clark, and everyone else who made it happen! LSUS strives to be a true community leader by hosting programming and events for one and all.
Here’s LSU Shreveport Chancellor Larry Clark getting the crowd pumped for the FNA Drew Brees visit to campus last week.

Get your financial aid department in order ..
Thank you, Chancellor Clark! It has been a pleasure to be a student under your leadership.

My name is Lawrence "Larry" Clark and I am the Chancellor at LSUS. It is a privilege to be able to return as chancellor of LSU Shreveport. Since opening its classrooms to students in 1967, LSUS has become the regional urban comprehensive university in the Shreveport-Bossier metropolitan area.

Anchored along the picturesque Red River in southeast Shreveport, the beautifully landscaped LSUS campus serves as home to more than 4,500 students.

For the first time since December, 2019, LSUS has returned to in-person ceremonies for our December, 2021 LSUS Commencement. Then we had 1,100 students walk with a packed arena. This year, we are doing four identical but separate ceremonies because of the pandemic to assure greater social distancing of graduates, faculty and guests. Our fourth and final ceremony begins in 90 minutes. Although there are far fewer people “in the house” per exercise, the Brookshire Center Arena has still rocked in our completed first three. Congrats to our graduates. Go Pilots!!

One of the fun traditions at LSU Shreveport is for students, staff and faculty to dress up for Halloween. Because I am today attending a LSU Board of Supervisors meeting, I walked around campus on Wednesday as The Riddler. Great fun.

Dr. Carlos Spaht, the founder/leader of LSUS LaPREP, today recognized graduates of this amazing summer program. LaPREP is primarily focused at minority K-12 students. It prepares graduates to effectively pursue a college degree program in math, science, or engineering (over the past 29 years, nearly 80% of the LaPREP graduates have done this). LaPREP is free to participants thanks to over $180K/year in support from donors, including AEP/SWEPCO, the Community Foundation of NWLA and the Grayson Foundation. Great day.

Because of very wet grounds from recent rain storms, the 2021 CenterPoint Energy Red River Balloon Rally was moved from the campus of LSU Shreveport to the Brookshire Grocery Arena this past week-end. The Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission team, led by Kelly Wells, did an amazing job to reset the Rally. Very prominent at the Rally was the LSUS balloon that was tethered for rides by Pat Harwell/team in support of the Bill Harwell Scholarships at LSUS. After being skipped last year because of the pandemic, he Balloon Rally was a particularly great celebration this year. LSUS hopes to again host the Rally next year.

Yesterday at the Shreveport Downtown Rotary Club, our Athletic Director, Lucas Morgan, and two of our student-athletes, Karolyn Hassler, from Arizona, and Brennan Maddox, from Southwest Louisiana, rocked the house in talking about Pilots sports. Over the last four years, LSUS teams have made 13 national tournament appearances and secured 12 conference championships. Our student-athletes had a 3.14 cumulative GPA this past year and logged hundreds of hours of community service. I could not be prouder of our Pilots AD, coaches and student-athletes. Go Pilots!

Grambling State University President Rick Gallot came to LSUS today to learn more about the transformation of our campus and to discuss possible collaboration opportunities. In turn, I plan to visit GSU in the near future. One of our necessary stops on campus, the incredible Noel Collection for a short overview from Curator Alex Mikaberidze.

Yesterday afternoon I informed the LSUS community of the passing of Dr. Alfred (Al) McKinney, the highly-respected and loved Professor Emeritus of Computer Science, due to COVID-19. Messages being exchanged today uniformly speak of what a great, humble individual Al McKinney was, especially for his students. What follows is the ending of Al’s last email message to the campus just prior to the start of the fall semester. “I wish everyone well with the start of school. It seems strange but I don’t plan to answer the bell. I plan to ride off into the sunset like John Wayne.” In so many ways, Al was our John Wayne at LSU Shreveport. We will miss you, Al. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his beloved wife, Mary Jo McKinney, and family.

To LSUS May, 2020 Graduates. Right about now we would have been calling you to come forward to be recognized in our May, 2020 Commencement Exercise. We regret that this is not happening today. You graduates have had to persevere through some incredibly challenging times this spring to get to this point. You have our fullest respect and appreciation from all of us at LSUS. A personal shout out to one LSUS graduate today- Susan Gray. Congratulations to all of you LSUS graduates. Go Pilots!!!

Thanks to everyone who enjoyed the program today and a HUGE thank you to Larry Clark for sharing his knowledge.

Sorry the program is in 2 segments- a bit of “technical difficulties “

We are Pilots Proud of Coach Brent Lavallee and his super LSUS baseball team for them winning both the RRAC season championship and being the RRAC Tournament Champions. Great year with more to come in the upcoming NAIA Tournament. Coach Lavallee, his team and the LSUS community continue to have Red and Blue thoughts concerning the Louisiana Tech baseball and softball teams for the awful storm damage to their respective stadiums.

Tuesday was an important day for LSUS at the Capitol because HB 470 was brought before the House Education Committee. We were prepared with two of the finest students any university could hope to showcase, Meagan Crews and Tyson Lee (our immediate past and current LSUS SGA Presidents), and with our ace Director of Media & Public Relations, Wendell Riley. We received wonderful support from so many of you, including our LSUS Foundation, LSUS Alumni Association and the Noel Foundation. LSUS had a record spring enrollment of 7,449 and a record 932 students will graduate tomorrow. While these are great successes, we did listen to Rep. Glover. We believe the momentum of what we are achieving at LSUS, with further support, will allow us to be what we all want in support of the Shreveport-Bossier region.

This morning we have toasted Kim Ramsey who is leaving LSUS for a great new opportunity. Kim has been outstanding as our/my Assistant to the Chancellor. Kim's overseeing our 50th Anniversary Celebration is just one of the many terrific things she has done at LSUS. Best wishes, our friend (and great LSUS alum)!

This past Friday, LSUS again hosted the regional K-12 Social Sciences Competition and, as chancellor, I took individual pictures with the winners. The students were great. I think you will recognize this winner's topic.

Earlier this week work began on sodding the new soccer field for our Women's and Men's Soccer teams. Now completed. Come by to see it- looks great.

The Pilots baseball team was one win away from winning the Red River Athletic Conference Tournament as they faced the LSU Alexandria Generals. Unfortunately, LSUA won game one 19-6 and game two 10-2 to defeat the Pilots and win the tournament. However, since we won the conference regular season championship we expect to still advance to the NAIA national tournament. Congrats Coach Lavallee and players for a great year within the conference.

Yesterday a great LSU/LSUS and community champion, William M. Comegys III, arranged and hosted a lunch that brought together nine officers and senior level civilians of the Global Strike Command and Barksdale Air Force Base to meet with myself and seven other LSUS colleagues. We had an a highly engaged meeting where we explored potential further collaborative opportunities. Bill made sure a joint action team was established to assure action ahead of the upcoming meeting between LSU President F. King Alexander and Gen. Robin Rand, Global Strike Commander. Thank you, Bill.

Yesterday five of us from LSUS visited the former Shreveport GM plant to meet with the leadership team of Hyundai GLOVIS, a new major tenant. Kaprina Browder, GLOVIS General Manager, personally led the welcome and overview, including driving us around the site in a small bus (pictured). GLOVIS is a new USA distribution site for Hyundai and Kia vehicles. Last month there were over 22,000 new Kia and Hyundai vehicles on site- yesterday there were around 12,000 vehicles. It is an amazing logistical operation. Kaprina’s leadership style is absolutely contagious. Dean Nancy Miller is already planning on site visits from School of Business faculty and students.

Wednesday night was our first Pilot Choice Awards event, our version of the ESPYS Awards, to celebrate our LSUS teams, coaches and student-athletes. Over 125 student-athletes attended, of which 64 had a 3.00 or higher GPA for the Fall, 2017 semester. This is the definition of great student-athlete. Pictured: Women's Cross Country team and #1 LSUS Athlete of the Year, NAIA All-American Stevie Clark. Congrats, all.

Today we had over 600 persons attend the "Authors in April" event to benefit our Pioneer Heritage Center, celebrating its 40th Anniversary during the 50th Anniversary celebration year of LSUS.

Thanks to Director Marty Young, Lead Patron Ms. Bobbie Cates Hicks, Authors Committee Chair Elizabeth Davis and the many other volunteers and supporters who helped to make this such a wonderful event.

Primarily thanks to the efforts of Professor Kenna Franklin, yesterday LSUS had over 75 participants, mostly students, in the Walk for Humanity 5K walk/run or 1 mile walk. A great turnout for a wonderful event supporting the Institute for Global Outreach. Some of the LSUS participants in the picture.

This morning we gathered in purple for our 50th Anniversary picture (taken via a drone) and then we celebrated the success of our Men's Basketball Team getting into the semi-finals of the NAIA tournament. Great seasons by both our Men's and Women's teams. Pilots Proud!

Yesterday the Shreveport Rotary Club provided a scholarship to an honor student from the six areas colleges and universities. The LSUS recipient was Briauna Chambers, a graduate of Byrd High School. Briauna plans to go to Tulane University to graduate school upon graduation from LSUS. Pictured with me is Red River Radio/KDAQ GM Kermit Pohling. Congrats, Briauna. Go Pilots!

Thursday evening LSUS won both our basketball games, Go Pilots. AD Lucas Morgan and our coaches also recognized our Student Athletes with a 3.00 or higher GPA for the fall semester. I love how many great students play for the Pilots AND how successful they play. Come to the basketball games today (Saturday). Women at 2:00, Men at 4:00 p.m.

Yesterday there was another joint meeting between administrative and faculty members of LSU Health Shreveport and LSUS to talk discuss strategies and processes to better link our two institutions concerning students, academic programs and joint research activities, especially involving students. Students having the opportunity to engage in research with faculty clearly differentiates our mission and role in serving students within this region.

02/10/2018

Wednesday began with Kasie Mainiero, Principal of University Elementary School, Ginger Gustavson, Principal of Captain Shreve High School, Angel Martin, LSUS Director of Student Activities and me beginning our day with KSLA Channel 3 promoting our upcoming joint 5K Run on February 24.

The Louisiana Biomedical Research Network annual meeting was at LSUHS this past week-end. Both Professors Brian Salvatore and William Yu made presentations and there were eight poster presentations by LSUS faculty/students. Brian’s presentation was Greek to me but I greatly appreciated learning about the extensive role of students. I missed William’s presentation but Julie Lessiter told me that it also was very well-received. Amanda Lewis told me that a total of seven patent applications have been made associated with the research by Brian and team.

Tomorrow our Nation will celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. LSUS will be closed. It will be an opportunity to reflect on his messages of peace and non-violence, racial equality and justice for all. One of my favorite Dr. King quotes: "The time is always right to do what is right."
