The University of Louisiana System Thanks Governor Foster

The University of Louisiana System Thanks Governor Foster - Oct 9, 2003

BATON ROUGE, La. - Five elementary children made quite an entrance into the Board of Regents Higher Education Forum when they used a red wagon to roll a live oak tree up to Governor M.J. "Mike" Foster.

The tree, a gift of appreciation from the University of Louisiana System, will be planted on the Governor's Mansion grounds as a testament to Foster's dedication to education during his two terms as governor.

A memorial plaque to accompany the live oak on the mansion grounds reads,

Governor M.J. "Mike" Foster:

"May this tree stand as a symbol of the educational foundation on which Louisiana's future rests. As it has taken root during your tenure, may it also flourish under future administrations."
