The Northwestern State University Demons kicked off their 2011 football season last Thursday night with a win against Delta State - 24 to 23.

Now I have to admit something to you. Shhhhhhh ....don't tell anyone!
But ........I am not a football fan...........! 


BUT I AM a HUGE fan of NSU!  It is the college that the majority of our family has attended. So....why was I seated in the prestigious "President's Box" last Thursday evening for this kick-off game? Well, as you see from the pictures - there were "half-time" activities which were to honor my daughter, April Giddens!

Congratulations to NSU for their win in their first game of the season! And also to April as the Louisiana 2012 Teacher of the Year. I loved having the opportunity to attend the game and join with April's peers and others to honor her achievements.  Because April is not only a graduate of NSU, but she also taught at the NSU lab school for several years, Northwestern State University is extremely proud of their former student!  And so am I. 

News from NSU Website:  Northwestern State University honored Louisiana Teacher of the Year and alumna April Jessup Giddens during the Delta State – Northwestern State football game. Giddens, a sixth grade teacher at Natchitoches Magnet School, earned a bachelor’s degree at NSU in 1996 and a master’s in 1998. Joining in on the presentation were, from left, State. Sen. Gerald Long, State Sen. Ben Nevers of Bogalusa, chair of the Senate Education Committee; Dr. Derwood Duke, superintendent of Natchitoches Parish Schools; Dr. Vickie Gentry, dean of the College of Education and Human Development, Giddens; Northwestern President Dr. Randall J. Webb and NSU student Mariah Courville, president of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority, Giddens’ sorority.
