Sutton selected as Southeastern Alumna of the Year
Michele SuttonThe President and Chief Executive Officer of North Oaks Health System has been selected as the Southeastern Alumni Association 2019 Alumna of the Year.
     Michele Sutton, a 1984 and 1988 graduate of Southeastern, will be honored at the Alumni Association’s annual awards evening this fall as part of Southeastern’s Homecoming Week.
     “With Mrs. Sutton’s guidance, the North Oaks medical staff has grown from 100 to 400 plus providers,” said Beth Carney Ebberman, president of the Alumni Association. “She has also played an integral role in development of the strategic plan to initiate the health system’s recent $250 million expansion project, electronic health records, many new product/service lines, and designation of the medical center as one of five trauma centers in Louisiana.”
     Sutton earned both a bachelor’s degree in marketing and master’s degree in business administration from Southeastern. She began her tenure at North Oaks Health System in 1988 as community resources officer and was promoted to executive vice president and chief operating officer in 2006. In 2012, she took on the additional responsibility of administrator and chief executive officer for North Oaks Medical Center. The North Oaks Board of Commissioners appointed her president and chief executive officer of the health system in January 2017.
     She is a previous president and vice president of the American College of Healthcare Executives’ Southeast Louisiana chapter and led the merger of both state chapters. She also serves on the American Hospital Association’s Foster G. McGaw Committee and is a longstanding member of the Louisiana Hospital Association, where she has served on numerous committees and is a member-at-large for the association’s board of trustees, its political action committee board of directors, as well as its trust fund’s board of directors.
     Sutton gives back to her alma mater through the Alumni Association, for which she is a lifetime member, the Lions Athletic Association, for which she is a board member, and Southeastern’s FeLions, of which she has been a member since 2003.
     Through its Annie Awards endeavor, the Greater Hammond Chamber of Commerce bestowed upon Sutton both an Outstanding Woman in Business Annie Award (1999) and a Legacy Annie Award (2018). Other honors include recognition in 2007 as a “Woman of the Year” by “New Orleans CityBusiness” and as one of the “Most Influential Women in Tangipahoa Parish” by “The Daily Star.” She was also the recipient of the 2007 Golden Pelican Marketer of the Year Award from the Louisiana Society for Hospital Public Relations and Marketing.

Employees invited to Appreciation Luncheon
In celebration of their dedication and service to Southeastern, all faculty and staff are cordially invited to attend the Employee Appreciation Luncheon this Wednesday, May 1, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
     Held in the Mane Dish, located on the second floor east entrance of the Student Union, the lunch is free to all employees who show their Southeastern ID card. The event is sponsored by Auxiliary Services, Aramark, Liberty National, Southeastern Human Resources, TIAA, Valic, VOYA, and United Health Care. Each employee will also receive a free Southeastern t-shirt.
     Additionally, Southeastern Athletics is showing its appreciation by offering complimentary tickets to the Lions baseball game versus McNeese on May 1 at 6 p.m. Employees will receive two free tickets to the game with their faculty/staff ID. Tickets can be picked up on game day at the ticket booth; however, to avoid lines, tickets may also be obtained at the Athletics Office prior to game day this Monday or Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Southeastern Channel named best in the nation
For the fifth time the work of students at the Southeastern Channel has been named best in the nation.
     A national first-place award for “Best Comedy Video” as selected by College Broadcasters, Inc. was recently presented to the Southeastern Channel, Southeastern Louisiana University’s cable television station, at the 2018 National Student Production Awards presented at the National Student Electronic Media Convention.
     The student comedy show “College Night,” produced by Jordan Reid of Luling, earned the first place honors. The episode can be viewed by clicking here
     The Southeastern Channel also had four additional productions place in the top four in the country as National Finalists out of over 950 entries from colleges and universities across the nation.
     “Mandeville Beach,” a news story by Amanda Kitch of Covington produced for the student newscast “Northshore News,” won second place in the nation for “Best News Reporting Video.” In 2017, Kitch won first place in the nation in the same news reporting category. The news story can be viewed by clicking here.
     The March 8, 2018 episode of “The Big Game” student sportscast, produced by Freddie Rosario of Luling, won third place in the nation for “Best Sportscast Video.” Andrew Scherer of New Orleans, Dylan Domangue of Houma, and Richie Solares of New Orleans anchored the winning episode. Other key contributors were reporters Wesley Boone of Alexandria and Schuylar Ramsey of Springfield. The sportscast can be viewed by clicking here.

     A pair of public service announcements produced by Southeastern Channel students also won National Finalist recognition. “Proud Dad,” produced by Jeremy Gaines of New Orleans, and “Don’t Procrastinate,” produced by Jennifer Doss of Mandeville, placed second and fourth in the nation, respectively, in the “Best PSA Video” category. “Proud Dad” can be viewed by clicking here. “Don’t Procrastinate” can be viewed by clicking here
     “These awards show that students at the Southeastern Channel produce top quality on a national scale in a variety of different shows and programs, from news and sports to entertainment and PSA’s,” said Southeastern Channel General Manager Rick Settoon. “I’m so happy that they’ve once again received this amazing national acclaim for their creativity, talent and hard work. They couldn’t be more deserving.”
     “College Night” is a Saturday Night Live-styled sketch comedy show written, produced, directed, shot, edited and performed by students. In addition to Reid, other key contributors to the first-place episode were Boone, Kitch, Gaines, Mason Dauphin of Luling, John Sartori of Mandeville, Alliyah Sims of Kentwood, Tyler Rogers and Ryan Harrison of Baton Rouge, Mallory Milton, Tyler Guidroz and Colton Vickers of Ponchatoula, and Courtney Bruno, Jeremy Rhodes, Hope Ramirez, Josh Hodgeson and Dustin Arroyo of New Orleans.
     The winning episode features comedy sketches ranging from a parody of Reddit’s “Roast Me” about students at the Southeastern Channel to a parody of the television show “Chopped.” The show also includes sketches about moviegoers who annoy and offend each other prior to a movie, a young lady jilted by her boyfriend who resorts to garish lipstick and eating ice cream, and a skit about students on a summer vacation who venture into an abandoned warehouse in the woods.
     “Everyone created skits they considered entertaining, so there’s a little something for everyone,” Reid said. “We had a funny group of writers. Because we worked together nearly every day, I think it was easy to find our strengths and discover how to work effectively together. That camaraderie made College Night successful, and I’m sure it will carry through with future episodes.”
     A Southeastern graduate in communication with a focus in TV, film and video, Reid now works as news producer for KATC-TV Ch. 3 in Lafayette (ABC) where she produces the 5 p.m. newscast. As a student worker at the Southeastern Channel, she produced the national award-winning student newscast, “Northshore News.”
     “I not only produced the show, but also served as a camera operator, editor, and even anchored a couple of episodes,” Reid said. “That experience gave me a head start to working as a news producer. I know how to work a camera, love directing, and know how to edit. I am fortunate enough that I was able to continue learning about my field with hands-on experience at the Southeastern Channel. That’s something that not every student can say about their college education.”
     “College Night” can be seen on the Southeastern Channel at 9:30 p.m. on Friday and Sunday nights on Charter Spectrum 199 in Tangipahoa, Livingston, St. Tammany and St. Helena parishes, and on demand at thesoutheasternchannel.com. The Southeastern Channel has now won nearly 400 national, regional and local awards, including 17 awards from the Emmys.

It is the fifth time that the Southeastern Channel has been named first in the nation by College Broadcasters, Inc. Four other Southeastern Channel productions were National Finalists.

“Back the Blue” raises money for Southeastern Police Department
Kappa Alpha Order fraternity at Southeastern held their 2nd annual “Back the Blue” event to support the Southeastern Police Department.
This year the event raised over $2,600 donated directly to the University Police Department.
     The members of KA accomplished this by the sale of raffle tickets to the community. The items raffled included an iPhone X, a Yeti ice chest, and two tickets on the suite level for the LSU vs. University of Florida football game next fall. Numerous gift cards and certificates were donated for the silent auction.
     The fundraiser concluded with a celebration at the Student Union, where the Police Department, fraternity members, students and local community enjoyed a shrimp etouffee dinner. The event also featured games, and a live DJ from KSLU, and a silent auction with numerous gift cards and certificates up for grabs.
     “With the support of the community, we were able to accomplish this worthy activity for our University Police,” said Event Chairman, Peyton Cooper.
     KA Alumni Advisor Gerard LaBorde said he looks forward to this continuing as a yearly event.
     “Kappa Alpha would like to thank the many generous donors and supporters that made this event possible,” he said. “Special thanks go out to Olive Garden, Lamar Advertising, KSLU radio, Michelle Gautreau, Russell Saloom MD, Hi-Nabor Foodstores, Gerard LaBorde, Dr. Amber Narro, Bridgeway Hospice, Gnarly Barley Brewing, Blackened Brew, Sweet Rolls Ice Cream, Red White and Brew, Cate Street Seafood and numerous volunteers. Special recognition goes out to KA members Preston Gautreau and Andrew McDonald for preparing the shrimp etouffee that everyone enjoyed.”

Summer Smart 

Southeastern institutes later class start times for summer courses
Southeastern is responding to student requests by modifying its Summer Smart programming to reflect later class start times.
     Now with course offerings at 8 a.m. or later, Summer Smart will continue to benefit students by reducing the net cost for a three-credit course to less than $900 and expanding high demand offerings with an increased number of online and hybrid courses. The changes in the summer semester were implemented to help students advance progress toward their degrees in a timelier manner, while reaping significant financial savings, said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Tena Golding.
     The idea of starting summer classes 30 minutes later came from focus groups and individual discussions with students, she said.
     “Many students felt 7:30 a.m. was just too early, especially in the summer, and wondered why the first class could not start at 8 a.m., the same time as regular semesters,” she said. “In addition, there was a concern for the students with child care needs. It was difficult to get children to day care and be on time for a 7:30 a.m. class. In some cases, students were paying an extra cost for early arrival at day care.”
     Before officially making the change, Student Government Association President Richard Davis, Jr. worked with SGA to survey students. The results confirmed that students overwhelmingly agreed with the time change.
     “When this potential change was brought to my attention, I worked with the SGA to create a survey that went out to various student groups,” said Davis. “Out of the 80 students who completed the survey, 96 percent indicated they agreed with changing the class start time for the summer semester from 7:30 to 8 a.m. I personally believe that this change will be welcomed by most students as they choose to continue their studies while being Summer Smart.”
     Since Summer Smart’s inception in 2017, summer enrollment has been on the rise, said Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management Kay Maurin. Last year the program enrolled 3,757 students.
     “With offering a $300 Summer Smart scholarship for undergraduates, enrollment grew by seven percent the first year and six percent the following year, equating to a 13 percent increase over a two-year period,” she said.
     Summer Smart savings result in reduced net cost of attendance for typical undergraduate students. Summer semester terms range from four to eight weeks.
     Hybrid courses combine face-to-face and online instruction for students, which is embraced by traditional and non-traditional students alike who are able to schedule their time around fewer physical trips to campus, Maurin added.
     The early deadline to apply for summer semester is May 1 with an application fee of $20. Students may also apply during the late application period that concludes June 1 with an additional late fee of $50.
     For more information on Southeastern’s summer sessions, visit southeastern.edu/summersmart or contact the Office of Records and Registration at records@southeastern.edu.

Counseling Center to host seminar on recognizing underground drug activity
Southeastern’s Counseling Center, in conjunction with the Tangipahoa Reshaping Attitudes for Community Change Coalition, will host a seminar on how to recognize the signs of underground drug activity in area communities. Scheduled June 26 in the Southeastern Teacher Education Building, the free seminar will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with attendees obtaining lunch on their own.
     Internationally renowned drug and alcohol expert Jermaine Galloway, also known as “The Tall Cop,” is returning to campus to train local law enforcement officials and Southeastern faculty, staff and students, said University Counseling Assistant Director Annette Baldwin. Galloway will share his experience and knowledge about the world of the drug subculture through his program “High in Plain Sight.”
     “Those taking part in the training will see first-hand examples of drug-related apparel, complete with stash compartments, marijuana edibles of all kinds and physical and emotional indicators of drug use,” said Baldwin. “Officer Galloway’s program ‘Tall Cop Says Stop,’ was created from his more than 15 years of experience specializing in underage drinking and drug enforcement as an Idaho law enforcement officer.”
     Baldwin said the seminar is open to the community and is designed for parents, educators and school administrators, prevention and treatment providers, law enforcement personnel, counselors, probation officers and coalition members.
     Topics to be covered include alcohol and drug clothing, signs and symptoms, alcoholic energy drinks and alcopops, non-traditional alcoholic beverages, synthetic drugs, including opioids, popular party drugs, e-cigarettes, inhalants, concentrates, and over the counter drugs.
     Baldwin said attendees will also learn about alcohol/drug containers and concealment methods, drug paraphernalia, drug-related music and groups, new alcohol/drug-related technology, youth party tendencies, party games, and social networking sites.
     “We are glad to partner with TRACC on this project,” Baldwin said. “The university has had representation on the TRACC Coalition for the past ten years. The coalition is working to improve the safety and quality of life for the citizens of Tangipahoa Parish by recognizing substance abuse as a serious social and public health issue and addressing the dangers and risks to our youth.”
     The workshop features more than 120 visual aids, Baldwin added. As part of the seminar, Galloway will conduct a “community scan,” that involves visiting convenience stores and other retail locations to maintain up-to-date knowledge of the local drug culture.
     Although the workshop is free, registration is required through Tangipahoa Parish Prevention Safety Coordinator Katy Ernest at Kernest@tangipahoa.org or https://conta.cc/2Dg4hZI.
     For more information, contact Baldwin at 549-3894 or go to www.tallcopsaysstop.com.

 

STEM awareness increased through ‘Brain Food Truck’ 
Area students now have the opportunity to feed their minds with hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities through a new “vehicle.” The Tangi STEM Coalition, of which Southeastern Louisiana University is a member, developed the “Brain Food Truck,” or mobile STEM lab, to increase accessibility to STEM activities for youth in underserved communities.
     Areas to be served by the new mobile STEM lab include Livingston, St. Helena, Tangipahoa, Washington, and St. Tammany parishes, said Southeastern Assistant Director of Math Science Upward Bound high school program and project co-chair Wendy Conarro. The purpose of the truck, she said, is to present enriching STEM activities by providing content for summer camps, after school and Saturday programs.
     “Thanks to the dedication of many volunteers and donors, the Brain Food Truck was introduced to the public at the 2019 Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival, where Hammond High Torbotics Team members took a break from preparing for World Competitions in Houston to serve up STEM activities to families,” she said. “On the menu were Strawberry DNA extraction, building and testing magnetometers and Keva Plank contraptions, commanding a Dashbot, and creating paper circuit art.”
     To help supply the Brain Food Truck, Southeastern Instructor of Industrial Technology Ed Rode led a work group of student volunteers during Southeastern’s The Big Event to assemble shelving to store supplies for over 40 STEM activities.
     “We would not be this far along without the expertise of partners such as Mr. Rode who took the lead in assembling the intricately designed shelving provided to our project by the Nebraska Children’s Foundation, which has 20 such trailers rolling through their rural communities.”
     The Brain Food Truck was funded by United Way of Southeast Louisiana, Intralox/Laitram, and Ponchatoula Kiwanis in honor of late engineer, Lee West. The project was also made possible by dozens of volunteers and hundreds of volunteer hours over the past nine months, Conarro said.
     “Events such as the Strawberry Festival and the upcoming Hammond Community STEM Cafe will give us time to test the system while also providing enriching activities at a few local events,” said Troy Williams, project co-chair. “Ultimately, the Brain Food Truck will bring tested, standards-based, student-centered activities to communities who lack such opportunities.”
     Conarro said the Brain Food Truck is being piloted this summer, after which they plan to secure funding for a fleet of mobile STEM labs to serve the Northshore region.
     For more information or to make a reservation for the Brain Food Truck, visit www.brainfoodtruck.org. Priority will be given to communities currently without summer STEM enrichment opportunities, Conarro said.
