TUESDAY: Dr. Katara Williams, Collis Temple Jr., Dr. Rochelle Head-Dunham & David Precise
The Assistant Commissioner for Public Affairs at the Board of Regents, Dr. Katara Williams, joins Jim to talk about Louisiana Online - a fully online degree program. She says anyone could take these courses (provided you are accepted to the University), but this offering aims to target those people who may have started college but didn't finish for whatever reason. Dr. Williams says these people may be working so these types of degrees can be obtained from home with the stroke of a keyboard. You can get more information by calling 225-342-4253 or visit LouisianaOnline.org.
Also Former LSU basketball star Collis Temple Jr. chats with Jim to talk about the racial controversy surrounding Clippers owner and billionaire Donald Sterling. Should he be removed from the NBA family after tape was released of him making insensitive remarks towards minorities? Temple Jr. was the first African-American LSU basketball player.
Dr. Rochelle Head-Dunham, with the DHH's Office of Behavioral Heath, and David Precise with the National Alliance on Mental Illness, come in studio to talk about House Bill 1155.
