NSU to honor Carley McCord with scholarship

NSU to honor Carley McCord with scholarship

Carley McCord

The Northwestern State University family came together in grief following the tragic loss of alumna Carley McCord, a wellknown sports journalist and digital media reporter who was one of five people killed in a plane crash in Lafayette Saturday, Dec. 28. Friends remembered McCord as a remarkable and involved student who stayed in touch with her NSU family and was a devoted Demon supporter.

McCord, 30, earned a degree in journalism at NSU in 2011. As an undergraduate, she worked in NSU’s Recruiting Office for four years where she was a Student Ambassador and gave tours to prospective students.

“She was driven, energetic and was out to set the world on fire,” said Jana Lucky, NSU’s former director of Recruiting, now director of Enrollment Services. “Carley was very determined, but also kind and genuine. She was well-known in sports media throughout the state and always used the hashtag #womeninsports. She was a loyal Demon.”

Each January, the Index takes several issues to provide a year in review for the events happening in the previous year. 2019 was a year of extreme elation for many, but times of mourning and reflection for others.

We hope you enjoy our second part, which covers the middle of the year.

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

WATCH OUR ECONOMY

We get caught up in the news about politics but we should never lose sight of what is really going on with our taxpayer dollars in Washington. Congress left town for a few weeks to wrap up the year and they spent a lot of money that bears watching. Before departure, lawmakers spent $1.4 trillion in discretionary spending for the rest of the fiscal year with little debate or objection. A bipartisan deal on the budget was supposed to give Congress time to negotiate 12 individual spending bills, but, as usual they couldn’t agree so they piled it all into two bills, totaling 2,300 pages on Monday. A day later they added a list of tax subsidies and by Friday it was law. Congress can act real fast when it is greasing its own wheels.

Patchwork

Our last camping trip with the Camping Cursillistas was to beautiful Lake Bruin on the Mississippi River, south of Vicksburg. It was in early November, when we loaded our campers and headed from Many, Slidell, Lake Charles, Haughton and beyond.

Usually, we camp at Indian Creek in Woodworth, but Judy and Irby Gamble invited us to camp on Lake Bruin, where they have a wonderful camp/home. (Gamble coached Tiger football in Many many years ago and hails from Marthaville.)

We all arrived at different times…. some in their usual campers and some in new ones. It was like old home week on the lake!! We took turns providing the evening suppers, but enjoyed eating inside two nights at the Gamble’s abode! Irby fried catfish one night and if we weren’t enough, they invited other nearby Cursillistas that we knew, so we could visit with old friends.
