Northwestern State University President and First Lady Dr. Chris and Jennifer Maggio hosted the Walter Ledet Coffee Club for breakfast Thursday to share information on projects in which the university is currently engaged and initiatives that are on the horizon. The Coffee Club is comprised of about 35 retired gentlemen who meet daily for coffee, fellowship and discussion of news and current events. Many have ties to NSU as alumni or as retired coaches, faculty and/or administrators. The Coffee Club began 25 years ago when the late Walter Ledet, a long-time coach and administrator at NSU, encouraged his friends and fellow retirees to meet regularly to stay active and engaged with NSU and the Natchitoches community. The Coffee Club, which usually meets at Merci Beaucoup, often invites guests to speak to the group on civic or community matters and is annually treated to breakfast at NSU.
