We were excited to join LSU Family Association as soon as our oldest son, Reid, began attending LSU. It provided us an important connection to our son’s college experience since we live 600 miles away. Shortly after, we wanted to be more involved and volunteered to serve on the Family Association Council. After three years, and now with our second son here at LSU, we now co-chair the Family Association Council and love being involved, providing guidance and leadership to the Association while doing all we can to provide an outstanding experience for our LSU students. Our favorite time of the year is the fall, when we award the annual Family Association scholarships to deserving students. Fall is also when we get to travel to Baton Rouge and cheer on both our sons playing football in Tiger Stadium, or meet them on the road at each and every away game! GEAUX TIGERS!!

After volunteering for the Parent Panel during Family Orientation, we realized that we really enjoyed connecting with the parents of new students. We were able to empathize with their concerns and give them assurance based on our own personal experiences. When we could not answer a question, we could turn to the Office of Orientation, Parent and Family Programs and get the information needed. We wanted to be able to reach more families, so the Family Council was a natural fit. We have met many wonderful families and look forward to meeting many more. We are proud LSU Parents and we LOVE PURPLE and LIVE GOLD!

Jason works at Phillips 66 in Westlake, LA as an analyzer/instrument supervisor, and I am a seventh grade math teacher at Moss Bluff Middle School in Moss Bluff, LA. We have two daughters attending LSU. Mary Beth is a senior majoring in biology, and Haley is a freshman majoring in business. As first year members of the counsel, we excitedly joined the counsel to stay connected to our children’s educational experience here at LSU. For the pasted three years, we have made lasting memories at the Family Association fall and spring weekends. At the family weekends, our oldest daughter, Kara, and her family as well as grandparents, aunts, great-aunts and great-uncles have all been given the beautiful tour of LSU, have heard the fun facts around the campus, and have experienced a game in Tiger Stadium and at Alex Box Stadium! We truly appreciate how LSU makes all members of the family feel like an LSU Tiger!

We joined the LSU Family Association Council in the fall of 2013 when our son James was a freshman.
We have always enjoyed being involved in our children’s school experiences. The Council affords us the opportunity to participate on an in depth level on campus.
It is very gratifying to serve on the Emergency Relief Fund committee and to be able help students in need. Our favorite part of the year is attending the Family Association Scholarship breakfast were we meet the outstanding recipients and their families. The Council is a wonderful way to connect with other families and the administration at LSU!
