Racca Made a Difference

When I opened up the Jennings Daily News epaper on Sunday morning Aug. 16, 2015, the first thing that I noticed was a picture of Steve Racca. I had never heard of nor met Steve until I started teaching in Hackberry, LA, at Hackberry High School. When I found out that Steve was originally from […]

When Rome would conquer another people or country, they would then colonize that conquered land. They would make that new […]

ULL pres. thanks legislature

when the session adjourned, the state’s higher education budget for the new fiscal year, beginning July 1, was essentially the same as that of last fiscal year. While work remains to be done to get the state’s fiscal house in order, it is important that we thank members of the Acadiana legislative delegation, particularly those […]
