McCollister named to LSU board
Gov. Bobby Jindal is expected to announce this afternoon four appointments to the LSU Board of Supervisors, including Rolfe McCollister, the publisher and CEO of Business Report. Two current members of the board—Stanley Jacobs, of New Orleans (1st Congressional District), and Dr. John George, of Shreveport (4th District)—will be reappointed. Also joining the board will be Ann Duplessis, of New Orleans (2nd District). This will not be McCollister's first stint serving on the LSU board, having served from 1988-92 under Gov. Buddy Roemer. "I am honored by the appointment and the opportunity to again serve my alma mater and our state," says McCollister, who will represent the 6th Congressional District. "I feel the LSU Flagship and System are critical to Louisiana's future." Jindal will name three additional appointees, representing the 1st, 3rd and 7th districts, at a later date.
