  1. I would like to see Chris Maggio appointed , he has put his heart into everything NSU. In my opinion it needs to be a home town person.

  2. As a person of Creole descent and with the understanding that NSU is home to the Louisiana Creole Heritage Center, I think it would be a mistake beyond words to not choose Chris Maggio. I’ve served in Iraq with one of these gentleman, and he is the closest runner-up. Many of the others are very much looking for promotion, while one had questionable grades to be honest.
