Northwestern State University awarded an Nth Degree to Carolyn B. Roy, a 1965 graduate of the university who has served the community as editor of the Natchitoches Times for more than 20 years.  The Nth Degree is one of the university’s highest honors and is bestowed for going the extra mile in meritorious service to mankind.  It is presented to those whose professional responsibilities and various other roles in making the world better are carried out to the Nth Degree.

 Northwestern State presented the award during a March 6 basketball game.

 Roy began her career immediately after graduation in 1965, going to work for the Natchitoches Enterprise, which was shortly thereafter absorbed into the Natchitoches Times. After three years, she took time off to have a family that includes Mark Roy and Julie Roy Longlois, both NSU graduates.  Longlois is employed at NSU as coordinator for the Carl Perkins Programs in the Office of Electronic and Continuing Education.

 Roy returned fulltime to the Natchitoches Times as lifestyles editor in 1992 and a year later took over the news editor’s job.  Over the years, the Natchitoches Times earned several awards from the Louisiana Press Association for reporting and design and layout, the most notable of which was a second place among state publications of all sizes for coverage of the events of Sept. 11, 2001. 

 “During my tenure at the Natchitoches Times, I have had the pleasure of supervising approximately 12 NSU graduates in the news room and numerous NSU interns,” Roy said.   

 Roy is a member of the Natchitoches Rotary Club, Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches, PEO Sisterhood, Service League of Natchitoches and First United Methodist Church.
