    (New Orleans) – New Orleans CityBusiness recently named two Dillard University women to the 2014 class of “Women of the Year.” Therese Badon, vice president for development for the UNCF and Dr. Toya Barnes-Teamer are among 50 women being recognized for their career and business accomplishments as well as their contributions to the New Orleans community.

                Badon, who graduated from Dillard University in 1987 with a B.A. in Business Administration and Management, has more than 12 years experience in fundraising administration. In 2008, she joined the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), the nation’s largest private provider of scholarships and other educational support to minority and low-income students. She has held several positions with increasing responsibility including regional development director and her current position as vice president for development. Previously, Badon served as executive director of alumni relations and annual giving at Dillard University.

                “I am humbled and honored by being selected for a second time as a City Business Woman of the Year, ” said Badon. “An honor like this speaks to the personal commitment I have made in serving the community and region in which I live.  I believe that in order to truly affect change, you must be rooted in the community and working towards making it a better place for all to live, work and play.”

                Dr. Barnes-Teamer has more than 20 years experience in higher education administration. As vice president for student success at Dillard, Barnes-Teamer is responsible for student affairs, student support services, public safety as well as campus and residential life. Prior to joining the executive staff at Dillard, she served as senior vice president for academic and student affairs for the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTS) and has held positions at Loyola University and the University of New Orleans. She earned both a B.A. degree in Visual Arts/Communications and M.S. in Guidance and Counseling from Loyola University in New Orleans.  Barnes-Teamer received her PhD in Higher Education Administration from the University of New Orleans.

                “I am thankful and appreciative of this recognition by New Orleans CityBusiness, said Barnes-Teamer.  “It is humbling to be among such a special group of women, many of whom I've admired close-up and from afar. I extend congratulations to all honorees.

                Both women will be honored during the 16th annual “Women of the Year” luncheon on Nov. 14 at the Hyatt Regency hotel, where an overall “Woman of the Year” will be announced.

    For a novice, it can be intimidating to invest money. There's the anxiety that comes with taking risks and knowing you may not get all of your money back. But arguably, what's even more intimidating is the investing jargon. There are a lot of buzzwords financial advisors and veteran investors use, like expense ratio and asset allocation, that are important for average investors to understand, yet the language can be a barrier.

    So if you'd like to invest but feel like you're visiting another country where your money may not be welcome, maybe you just need to learn the language first. This isn't a comprehensive list by any means, but understanding these terms may make you feel more confident about investing.

    Asset allocation. This is just a fancy phrase for your investment strategy. There are three general categories where you're going to put your money: cash, bonds and stocks, says Kemberley Washington, an accounting professor at Dillard University in New Orleans and a certified public accountant. "Cash," she says, "is the least risky and would provide the least amount of return … Bonds are generally riskier than cash but less risky than stocks."

    WDSU6 VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

    Brown... The unarmed black teen shot and killed after a confrontation with a ferguson police officer earlier this month. Following the funeral at a st. Louis church, a procession took place to a cemetery where michael brown was laid to rest. On a campus of students who say they identify with 18-year-old michael brown... A moment of silence for the tragic loss. As the teen's family laid him to rest... Dillard university paused to pray for peace. Wdsu's casey ferrand shows us why for one student... This was a chance to join with friends and family in missouri. On the first day of classes here at dillard university, students gathered at the flag pole praying for peace in honor of mike brown, an 18 year old who will not have the chance to go to college. 10 We pray for the families and the children who have been slain by gun violence. A sound that's heard in every city. A sound that's heard loudly in ferguson, missouri... Which is only miles away from the suburb where dillard senior quentin worth grew up. He left home to return to campus the day michael brown was shot and killed by an officer. I felt it here because i have younger siblings and they have to grow up amongst this type of police brutality and things of that nature also i've had to look back on my past experiences with police in st. Louis. He's only been able to watch the unrest and violence from afar... Keeping in touch with family through hourly phone calls. I couldn't do much from here but my family is out there protesting and i'm worried he says he's seen the tension between police and young men in st. Louis grow in recent years... He was even pulled over by police this summer. It's just a lot that goes into the aggression between the young males and the police. It's a lot of division between the two sides. Monday, quentin joined with students at dillard... Hands up, don't shoot. Hands up don't shoot as they call for justce and pray for peace. We shall overcome the activities that have been occuring haven't been i assume what the family would want. All the riots going on in ferguson. We don't need that we need a time of peace. We need a time for justice. We need a time for accountability. On a campus of mostly black students... These young people understand that on any day... Ferguson missouri could easily be new orleans, louisiana. As a black male we are labeled, and it frightens me sometimes but you just have to be motivated, you have to pray, you have to remain calm and just do the right thing. Officials say there are about 12-hundred students here, 30 percent of them are black men. On your side casey ferrand wdsu news.
