UL System president will speak at Press Club on June 10

Jim Henderson, president of the University of Louisiana System, will be Monday’s Press Club of Baton Rouge speaker. Henderson will address the state of higher education and efforts to boost graduation rates in Louisiana, where fewer than one in four adults has a college degree. Press Club meets on Mondays in the East and West Baton Rouge Room at the Belle of Baton Rouge Hotel, which is located at 102 France St. Parking is free in the garage off Mayflower Street. Lunch, which is served at 11:30 a.m., is $15 for members and $20 for nonmembers. The public is invited, but only members of the Press Club and the news media are allowed to ask questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
