Taylor Porter Partner and Executive Committee Member Preston Castille, who serves as President of the Southern University Alumni Federation, was interviewed this morning on NBC's local affiliate, WVLA Channel 33, to discuss the 2018 SU Alumni Federation Conference, to be held July 19-22, at the Watermark Hotel in Baton Rouge.
With this year marking the biennial conference, the Federation, which includes thousands of members across the nation and abroad, is hosting several events that celebrate tradition, innovation and achievement.
“This year’s conference is packed with substantive and timely speakers and panel discussions related to Southern University and the surrounding community,” said Castille. “We will focus greatly on the University’s new Imagine 20,000 initiative to grow student enrollment, improve our infrastructure, and expand Southern’s footprint in Baton Rouge. We also look forward to showcasing some of the capital city’s fantastic attractions.”
Activities include campus tours, professional development workshops, the inaugural “40 Under 40” awards ceremony, and the “Circle of Achievement” gala featuring national media personality Roland Martin. Among speakers and facilitators for the three-day conference are Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome and Kim Hunter Reed, Louisiana Board of Regents commissioner.
