Ms. Jana Lucky, a lifelong Northwestern State University Demon who bleeds purple and white, was honored by her university community Thursday, June 15 at a reception held to recognize her service to NSU upon her well-earned retirement.
Ms. Lucky started her remarkable 31-year tenure at NSU as a student, earning her bachelor’s degree in 1992 and her master’s degree in 1998. She began her NSU career as a recruiter and over the years has held several positions in NSU’s Admissions and Recruiting areas. Prior to her retirement, she served as NSU’s Director of Enrollment Management and Coordinator of University Events.
NSU is a family affair for the Luckys. Both her sons followed in her footsteps by attending Northwestern State University. Her daughter-in-law is also an NSU alumna, and her 6-month-old granddaughter will no doubt be wearing purple in a few years.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal extends its best wishes to Ms. Jana Lucky as she ventures into this new phase of her life. She will be a tough act to follow!
