Before becoming President at Delta State, President LaForge traveled to Poland to teach short courses at John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin — or KUL as it is widely known. It is the home university of the late Pope John Paul II and a source of great pride for both Catholics and the people of Poland. It is a great partnership for Delta State University.
Delta State is collaborating with KUL in an international exchange program that promises to broaden the university’s reach and opportunities globally. Delta State had the privilege of hosting guests from John Paul II University on campus to share with them some of the university’s unique programs and to introduce them to the outstanding students, faculty and staff at Delta State.
Joining President LaForge are Paulina Liszka, member of the Law faculty, and students Julia Dabek, Monika Jurek, Magdalena Kaczorowska, and Alicja Wozniak.

Also on campus this week, Delta State will honor two long-time employees of Delta State. On Friday, there will be a retirement reception for Dr. Myrtis Tabb, who has served the university for nearly 20 years, most recently as the Associate Vice President of Finance and Administration. This special reception is set for 2 p.m. at the BPAC. On Saturday, the university will dedicate Blansett Hall in honor of Dr. Wayne Blansett, Vice President Emeritus of Student Affairs, who served the university 40 years before retiring earlier this year.
