The 2012 Spring Open House at Dillard University was another huge success. So says Monica White, Coordinator of Campus Tours and Special Events who lead the effort to promote Dillard University to prospective students and their families.

"In the five years working here, this has been by far the largest and most successful Open House", she adds.

Dillard faculty, staff, students and alumni pooled their talents and resources to welcome close to 300 visitors to the campus on Saturday, Mar. 24, 2012. Visitors from as far away as Maryland, Arkansas, Texas, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and other towns in Louisiana had positive feedback to share about their visit and the university.

One student said on their survey, “ I have officially fell in love with Dillard.”

Dillard University thanks all participants for their efforts and looks forward to seeing future students back on campus.

Champions_Program_1The American Dream is alive and well, and Dillard University College of Business will pay homage to it as it honors local entrepreneurs Paul Flower and Dorothy Perrault at the second annual Champions of the American Dream event on Thursday, March 29 at 5:30 p.m. in the Georges Auditorium of the Professional Schools and Sciences Building. Attendance is free and open to the public.

Flower is the president and C.E.O. of Woodward Design+Build, the New Orleans architecture firm that helped build Dillard's Professional Schools and Sciences Building. Perrault, a Dillard alumna from the class of 1960, owns Perrault Kiddy Kollege, a local pre-school program with two locations in the Gentilly area. They were chosen for their success and persistence in business pursuits, their history of philanthropy, and their service as role models for the New Orleans community.

At the ceremony, both honorees will lecture on business entrepreneurship and participate in an audience Q&A session. A reception will follow in the atrium of the Professional Schools and Sciences Building.

Champions of the American Dream is an initiative of the Dillard University College of Business designed to recognize local business leaders. The event honors one Dillard alum and one non-alum annually. In 2011, Dillard recognized Beverly McKenna and Larry Lundy at its inaugural Champions ceremony.

Flower and Perrault were nominated by a committee consisting of Dr. Christian Fugar, dean of the College of Business; Dr. Walter Strong, executive vice president; Kemberly Washington, assistant dean for student programs in the College of Business; Ronald V. Burns Sr. of the board of trustees; Troy Baldwin, assistant vice president for development; and Travis Chase, senior officer for advancement services. Interim President James Lyons and the senior cabinet approved the nominations.

kiki-baker-barnesjpg-fea63eb225c37a4f_smallDillard University Athletic Director and Coach Kiki Baker Barnes knows a thing or two about leading girls into greatness. Her past achievements in school as a student athlete and her current status as head of the Athletics Department demonstrate her ability to make things happen. It's those exact leadership qualities Girl Scouts Louisiana East want her to display at their Centennial Extravaganza, held Saturday, March 17, 2012 at the Lanar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales, La.

Barnes will be part of the "To Get Her There" panel, created to motivate girls on setting and reaching goals and aspirations. Along with University of New Orleans Dean of Engineering Dr. Norma Mattei, University of New Orleans Women’s Basketball Head Coach Keeshawn Carter, Owner of the Omni Advertising Agency Dee Clubb, and Chief Operating Officer of Quaternary Resource Investigations Cheryl Wells, Barnes will share her story on achieving her own goals and encourage other young girls to do so as well.

As she enters her sixth year as Athletic Director and Head Women's Basketball Coach for the Dillard University Lady Bleu Devils, Barnes brings experience and hard work to the university campus. The dynamic leader has been selected to participate as one of ten minority coaches in the Black Coaches and Administrators' (BCA) 2008 Achieving Coaching Excellence (ACE) Program. Barnes also is one of two African-Americans named to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) newly formed National Administrative Council (NAC). Barnes is also President of the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference (GCAC), a position she has held since 2009 and is the first African-American to be given the title.

Barnes set many goals for herself as a student and continues to do so today. She was a standout basketball player and track star for the University of New Orleans (UNO). She currently holds UNO's triple long jump record. Before being recruited by UNO, Barnes led the South Plains College Lady Texans Basketball Team to a 23-7 record while leading the team in steals and seconding in scoring.

Her educational background includes an associate's degree in telecommunication from South Plains College (1995), a bachelor's degree in communications from the University of New Orleans (1997), and a master's degree in communications with concentration in Public Relations from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (2001). Not one to rest on her laurels, she continues to set goals for herself and is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in educational administration at UNO.
