Dr. Jenkins also discussed the LSUS Commitment Plan from the LSU System and the new degrees that coming to LSUS. Three individuals were honored with the Loyalty Award which is presented to retirees who have contributed significantly to LSUS - Dr. Vince Marsala, Chancellor; his wife, Carol Ann Marsala; and Jackie Reed, former Assistant to the Chancellor.
