Lions Lend a Paw for Flood Relief
Before the start of the fall semester, Lions volunteered over 1,000 much-needed hours of manpower helping with the regional recovery effort following the historic flooding that devastated much of south Louisiana. Communication professor Amber Narro and a team of faculty and staff help organize the overwhelming volunteer efforts from students and the community. Teams of students, student athletes, and members of many student organizations went out to over 60 homes to assist with cleanup using supplies donated by the community.
