Welcome New Rotarians

By Van Reech

The regularly scheduled meeting Of the Mansfield Rotary Club on 4/27/22 at the Mansfield Female College Museum admitted two new members.  Rotary President Dudley Glenn inducted Assistant District Attorney Lisa LaBrono Burson and District Judge Nick Gaspar. 

Guests attending were Ms. Kelli Fisher, the new Director at the NWLTCC.  Ms. Fisher told the Club that the Technical College is now SACOS accredited which means that graduates can further their education by transferring their credits to a traditional college or university.  This is a Big Deal which moves them out of the “Trade School” classification!  You can contact her at the Mansfield Campus 318-872-2243.

Another guest at the meeting was Mr. John Barr, an Associate in U.S. Senator Kennedy’s Shreveport Office.  Barr told the club that he was available to the public for help them with problems they might have with the Veterans Administration, Social Security or other government agencies.

The Mansfield Club meets every other Wednesday at the Mansfield Female College Museum.  Instead of catering the Rotarians have a “Sandwich Bar” where they make their own sandwiches.  They offer the traditional favorites and sometimes feature exotic makings such as this week’s specialty, Hog’s Head Cheese.
