From graduation to the Mayor’s Office: Southeastern Alumna serving as Mayor of Tangipahoa
Graduation Day for most students is a chaotic and exciting time, but for Southeastern marketing major Trashica Robinson, it was especially so. Hours after walking across the stage at Commencement last December, Robinson, 37, learned she had won the office of Mayor for her hometown, the Village of Tangipahoa.
     “After graduating I was stuck in traffic, trying to get back to the village to make sure people were getting out to the polls,” said Robinson. “When I got back, I was told that I wasn’t going to win, but it turns out those people were only looking at absentee ballots. When I found out the actual results, I was numb, but I knew my perseverance had paid off.”
     A non-traditional student who works for the non-profit organization Southeast Advocates for Family Empowerment, Robinson – along with other Southeastern students – had an admittedly rough final semester. She had lost everything during the Great Flood of 2016 and worked full-time while managing her courses at the university. It was a burden that would have broken many students, but she credits her success to her “amazing” support system.
     “I want every student at Southeastern to understand that it doesn’t matter where you come from, what you’ve done, or who you are. If you have the right support, you can excel, and your dreams can become reality,” she said. “If it wasn’t for my family, friends, and my professors, I wouldn’t have made it as far as I have.”
     Robinson credits Southeastern’s College of Business with her success in the classroom and in the real world. She said it not only gave her the technical knowledge she needed to graduate, but also encouragement and emotional support during a very trying time.
     “The College of Business is, as far as I’m concerned, the best on the campus,” she said. “They make sure that by the time you leave the classroom, you’re world-ready. Even outside the classroom they do everything they can for you. I was almost positive I wouldn’t be graduating because I was dealing with losing my home to the flood, but my professors sat down with me, calmed me down and help me figure out a plan.”
     The newly elected mayor also credits the college for inspiring her to run for office, one instructor in particular.
     “One of my instructors, Anna Bass, always shared a ‘quote of the day’ with the class before getting started. One in particular stood out to me,” said Robinson. “It was something like ‘every day we should stop and appreciate everything around us.’ One day, I did that in my community, and I decided to make the wrong things right and make the right things better.”
     “I was so impressed when Ms. Robinson brought up in a class discussion in my business strategy class that she was running for mayor of her hometown,” said David Wyld, professor of management and business administration.  “We talk so much about getting young people involved in the political process and in making real change happen in our communities, and she’s a wonderful exemplar of this. She faced long odds in her run for mayor – running against an ex-NFL player and more factors – and yet she took that brave step forward and actually won!”
     Wyld added: I’d like to think that some of what she learned in my class – how to better communicate, how to think more strategically, and how to effectively lead change in organizations – will serve her well in office. All of us at Southeastern should be so proud of her and use her story as an example for future students on how to take what they have learned here and work to make a difference.”
     Robinson campaigned on the idea of collaborating with surrounding communities and small businesses to bring her small town into the 21st century. The Village of Tangipahoa, located in the northern part of Tangipahoa Parish, is home to less than a thousand people. Because it is so small, internet providers have not invested in infrastructure there, making it difficult to connect with the outside world. Clean water and proper drainage are other big challenges faced by the community. Robinson is confident that her newfound business acumen can help create the partnerships the village needs to help her neighbors and constituents.
     “My immediate hope is that we can show our neighboring communities what we’re willing to do in order to grow, and hopefully they will help us along the way,” she said.

VILLAGE LEADER – Trashica Robinson left her commencement ceremonies at Southeastern last December to learn she was elected mayor of the Village of Tangipahoa. The recent graduate of the College of Business says the skills she learned at Southeastern have prepared her to meet the challenges facing the village.

Southeastern students to sponsor farmers markets all spring

     Tentative dates for the others are March 22 and April 5. Each will feature locally grown produce, arts and crafts, and freshly prepared foods such as honey and cheese. Vendors include Covey Rise Farms, Berry Hill Farms, and various independent artisans.
     “We want to promote supporting a local economy by promoting local farmers and artisans,” said Reconnect President Jessica Bell, a sophomore sociology major. “For us, it’s all about promoting awareness of the importance of buying locally grown food, rather than food that is grown thousands of miles away and eating sustainably.”

Southeastern celebrates 2017 Women’s History Month
The Department of History and Political Science will coordinate Women’s History Month throughout March with a series of free presentations.
     “Women’s History Month will feature a variety of interesting topics that focus on an interdisciplinary approach to women’s history,” said William Robison, head of the Department of History and Political Science and coordinator of the series. “We are pleased that colleagues from other institutions and departments are joining us in providing a diverse program throughout the month.”
     All of the programs are free and open to the public and will be held in the Student Union Theatre.
     Robison will open the series at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 7, with a lecture that bridges Black History Month and Women’s History Month. Using audio and video examples, his talk – “Who’s Got Natural Rhythm? Racial and Gender Stereotypes in the Music World” – will shatter common stereotypes about the supposed differences in the ability of men, women and various ethnic groups to play particular kinds of music, whether it be classical, jazz, blues, gospel, country, rock or hip hop.
     The schedule for Women’s History Month also includes:
     Wednesday, March 15, 2 p.m., LSU Associate Professor of History Leslie Tuttle, who teaches courses on the history of magic and witchcraft and the history of food, will speak on “Cooking with Demons.”
     “The lecture will probe the connections between the longstanding social expectation that women feed others and the fear that witches, with the aid of their demonic helpers, used food as a vehicle for harm or possession,” she said. “The logic of the connection was sustained by folk and expert knowledge about the effects of food in the body.”
     Wednesday, March 22, 2 p.m. Southeastern Professor of Political Science Margaret Gonzalez-Perez will present “Pretty Smart: Women in Science.”
     “Over the last century, enormous advances have been made in science and technology, and the women responsible for many of these achievements have gone largely unnoticed,” she explained. “Female physicians have developed treatments for cancer and revolutionary heart surgery. Women chemists have decoded molecular structures and expanded our knowledge of genetics, while female biologists have identified significant developments in our environment that impact human society. Women mathematicians are even responsible for helping develop the space program. Using the power of their intellect, these women not only overcame the scientific challenges of their disciplines, but also overcame the societal restrictions placed on women in male-dominated fields.”
     Tuesday, March 28, 12:30 p.m., Southeastern Assistant Professor of English C. Denelle Cowart will address “From Fascist to Duchess: The Tangled Relationships of the Mitford Sisters,” discussing ways in which the lives of six aristocratic British sisters, spanning the years 1904 through 2014, were interwoven with many of the most important events of the 20th century.
     “Two of the sisters were indeed Fascists and were close friends with Hitler. Another migrated to the United States, where she first became a member of the Communist Party and later a muckraking journalist,” Cowart said. “The oldest was one of Bright Young Things of the Roaring Twenties and later a bestselling novelist, while the youngest became Duchess of Devonshire. All the Mitford sisters were gifted writers, and their published works, as well as their letters, tell a fascinating story of their interactions with each other as well as with famous figures ranging from Winston Churchill to John F. Kennedy.”

Students visit Chick-fil-A in Atlanta
A group of Southeastern students and recent graduates traveled with Career Services staff to the Chick-fil-A Support Center in Atlanta, Ga., Feb. 23 – 24, to attend a recruiting open house.
     Recipe for Success, the inaugural event hosted by Chick-fil-A, introduced attendees to the company’s employment opportunities and provided a look into its corporate culture. Students and alumni participated in campus tours, interactive panels, and presentations focusing on career preparedness and job success. Southeastern was the only school from Louisiana invited to attend the event. Students and alumni majoring in business, communications, and technology had the opportunity to explore specific departments of interest – marketing, supply chain, information technology, and financial services.
      “The trip was amazing. I absolutely loved visiting Chick-fil-A because I was shocked at how different the culture is compared to the stiff idea we generally have about corporate environments. It was unlike anything I expected, it was almost Google-esque,” said Ian Squires, senior accounting student and attendee.
