  • For the first time in central Louisiana history, the two student body presidents at LSUA and CLTCC have been selected to serve on their respective system board of directors in the same year.

    Richard “Ricky” Brazzel at LSUA and Shanco Williams at CLTCC work to ensure students from the entire LSU and CLTCC systems are represented on their respective board of supervisors. They help protect student interests when questions regarding funding, fees, and degree programs are brought before the boards.

    Williams is a native of New Orleans who arrived at CLTCC after a 20-year career in the United States Air Force. He is a graduate of Wayland Baptist University in Wichita Falls, Texas with a bachelor’s degree in management. He is currently studying drafting and design at CLTCC with the hopes of joining the Army Corps of Engineers Drafting Department in New Orleans as a veteran.

    Brazzel is a senior at LSUA and entering his second term as student body president at the university. He is a history major with a political science minor and intends to attend law school following graduation in May 2020.

    Both students were selected earlier this year and will serve one-year appointments.

    “It’s a major honor to be selected to represent over 50,000 students from across the system, from our undergraduate, graduate and medical schools on the LSU Board of Supervisors. It’s a responsibility that I don’t take lightly. I represent them while listening and making sure they are heard,” says Brazzel.

    For Williams, serving on the Louisiana Technical Community College Board of Supervisors means learning and understanding the process of how the colleges strategic business gets formulated and carried out to where those decisions impact two-year technical colleges across the state.

    “Being elected to serve on the LCTCS Board allows me to interpret data in order to make informed decisions and vote with the students best long-term interest in mind,” says Williams.

    Williams was elected to the board as one of two student positions from the membership composed of the student body presidents of the community college system. The process is similar to Brazzel who was elected to the LSU Board of Supervisors by the council of Student Body Presidents, a group of all public university student body presidents from across Louisiana.

    Both the LCTCS Board and the LSU Board of Supervisors are composed of members from throughout the state who are appointed by the governor with Senate approval.

    “The board consists of amazing leaders from across the state and at the highest levels of their individual professions with a love for the state and LSU. It’s a blessing and an honor to have the opportunity to build relationships with them and learn from them,” says Brazzel.

    Of course, both Williams and Brazzel also have to continue to lead their respective student bodies while serving on the state level at the same time.

    Williams says serving as student body president at CLTCC means being there for the student community at all times. “Being student body president is advocacy on behalf of students for all things pertaining to student actions and being the first line of contact for resolving or elevating issues to the administrative channels,” says Williams.

    Serving as a two-term SG president at LSUA, Brazzel says his focus is the ensure that there is a bridge between students and administration and that the student voice is heard.

    “My goal for this year is not only to advocate for students, but also to empower them. I want students on campus and across the state to realize they don’t have to wait on the men and women in government positions to make a change. Students have the ability, if unified, to initiate the change they want to see,” says Brazzel.

  • LSUA’s online English program has been recognized by bestcolleges.com as one of the best programs of its kind in the country.

    “The LSUA online program in English went from being unknown to being ranked 20th as one of the best online English program in the U.S. It is a tremendous achievement and testimony to the high quality of the faculty who teach at LSUA. The LSUA faculty care about their students and are there throughout their college careers,” says Dr. Holly Wilson, chair of the Department of Arts, English, and Humanities.

    The 2019 rankings reflect the most recent data available from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and College Navigator, both of which are hosted by the National Center for Education Statistics.

    “Recognition by bestcolleges.com is a tribute to the collective effort to sustain an online degree program that fosters independent learning and is responsive to and supportive of a variety of students,” says professor of English, Ginger Jones. “However, without the training and assistance of Director of Distance Learning Teresa Seymour, Educational Technology Specialist Keyra Wagner, and Online Scheduling Assistant Brandi Coody, we could not have achieved this recognition.”

    LSUA online English format prepares students to pursue careers in teaching, editing, communications, or writing. Students enjoy a comprehensive education along with a thorough understanding of English principles, literature, and comprehension.

    Online classes begin every seven weeks. If you would like more information, please visit lsua.edu.

  • LSU of Alexandria is launching a new accounting degree in August announced Dr. Kent Lachney, CPA, Coordinator of Accounting, for the LSUA Department of Business Administration.

    Now students in central Louisiana and throughout the state can earn a Bachelor of Science in Accounting in both a traditional and 100% online format. “The degree equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary for successful completion of the CPA exam and for entry into public accounting, industry, or governmental/non-profit employment,” states Dr. Lachney.

    “An accounting program which prepares students for the CPA exam is much needed in central Louisiana,” says Business Administration Chair Dr. Randall Dupont. Studies show that the central Louisiana region needs approximately twice as many accountants than are currently employed by area businesses. In addition, the Louisiana Workforce Commission has rated the field of accounting as a 5-star occupation for its high pay and stability.

    The new degree follows the department’s recent announcement of accreditation. In June, LSUA received a 10-year internationally-recognized accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). “This accreditation certifies LSUA’s business program meets the highest academic standards,” says Dr. Dupont. The new accounting degree in combination with accreditation means LSUA offers an excellent educational opportunity in central Louisiana and for working professionals online.

    Dr. Lachney states, “Accounting graduates can pursue a variety of paths after graduation.” Most seek careers in public accounting (including auditing, tax preparation, and business consulting) and private accounting (including financial accounting, management accounting, and internal auditing). Some graduates continue their education and earn a Master of Science in Accounting or Master of Science in Business Administration, with or without a concentration in Accounting. Others attend law school, he says.

    Dr. Lachney and faculty have done an outstanding job in developing the curriculum, says Dr. Dupont. “Dr. Lachney originated the new degree after seeing the need among area employers. With his professional experience and CPA credentials, he was able to develop a student-centric program that will prepare students for a successful career in accounting and, at the same time, meet the needs of organizations for degreed accountants.”

    Dr. Lachney expects the new accounting degree to attract both on campus and online students to fill the workforce need and provide high paying jobs in the community. In addition, working professionals who already have a bachelor’s degree in business or non-business programs can enroll for classes to meet the education requirements to sit for the CPA exam.

    In anticipation of the new program, the business department launched an Accounting Club this past year. Dr. Lachney, the club’s advisor, explained the purpose of the Accounting Club: “We strive to bring professions in a variety of fields and career stages to campus to show students the possibilities that exist following graduation. So far, guests have included local CPAs in industry and public practice, an FBI special agent, and other accounting professionals.”

    The new degree combined with accreditation solidifies LSUA as a premier destination for a quality education in business and accounting. For more information on the accounting degree at LSU of Alexandria, please email Dr. Kent Lachney, CPA,, at klachney@lsua.edu.
