@McNeese November 21


My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: McNeese State University

Location: Lake Charles LA

In a couple of days I will be deep frying 10-12 turkeys for family and friends. I owe a big debt of gratitude to a Lake Charles, Louisiana native named John Holmes who taught me how to do it.

I met John and his wife Mandy when I was coaching at Winthrop University. More about my friend John can be found from a previous post of mine from February 2015.

Lake Charles is home to what is now called McNeese State University. Founded in 1939 as a part of the Louisiana State University system, McNeese was first known as Lake Charles Junior College. The following year, the school changed its name to John McNeese Junior College to honor John McNeese, a renowned Southwest Louisiana educator and the first superintendent of schools in Imperial Calcasieu Parish.

The engineering program began in the fall semester of 1939 as a two-year pre-engineering program, which coordinated with the four-year engineering program at Louisiana State University.

Today the McNeese campus, located in Lake Charles, Louisiana, consists of the 121-acre main campus, the 503-acre Farm, the 65-acre Doland Athletics Complex, and nearly 1,600 acres of donated farm property used for research, farming, and ranching.

The university has between 7500 and 8,000 students.
