SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY AT SHREVEPORT LOUISIANA HOLD ITS FIRST FALL COMMENCEMENT On Saturday, December 12, 2009, at 10:00A.M., Southern University at Shreveport Louisiana (SUSLA) will hold its First Fall Commencement in the Health & Physical Education Complex, 3050 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. The addition of a Fall Commencement to the academic calendar allows students who have completed their coursework in the fall the opportunity to receive their diplomas as soon as they have satisfied graduation requirements. The 2009 Fall Class has 83 graduates. "This is a momentous occasion for the entire campus community. More of our students are completing their program matriculation at the end of Fall Semester and we want to reward them accordingly as they have worked very hard and diligently to obtain their degrees and certificates," says Dr. Ray L. Belton, SUSLA Chancellor. The Honorable Patrick O. Jefferson, Southern University Board of Supervisors Member, will be the Keynote Speaker for the occasion. Atty. Jefferson is a native of North Louisiana. He joined the Newell Law Firm in September 2005. He has since helped to bring a sense of energy, vitality and enthusiasm back to the area by primarily practicing law in the civil area but he also does criminal defense. Patrick, by virtue of his association with New Orleans and South Louisiana, practices throughout the state. He is also an elected official as he serves on the Bienville Parish Police Jury District 2, having been elected in October 2007. He is a public servant who not only serves his constituency but also advocates zealously for the clients he represents. Atty. Jefferson is married to Erica and is the father of two girls, Erin and Krystal.
