    Dr. Lynn Gillette officially joined the Nicholls State University administrative team on July 1, as he filled the position of provost and vice president for academic affairs. In joining the team, he is filling a position that has been held on an interim basis since August 2014. Prior to coming to Nicholls, Dr. Gillette was the president of Sierra Nevada College, a private, liberal arts college in Incline Village, Nevada. Dr. Gillette was at Sierra Nevada College for about seven years, with three and a half years spent as the provost and executive vice president, and the other three and a half years as the president. Prior to that, he had a few stops along the way as a vice president at Spalding University, an economics faculty member at Texas A&M, University of Texas in Austin, Southern Methodist, and University of Kentucky, and taught in Tulane’s MBA program at their Houston and New Orleans campuses. Dr. Gillette’s love for Nicholls started with what he saw on the university’s website and his initial Skype interview. He said, “I loved everything I saw on the website. When I interviewed over Skype, the friendliness of this place jumped out over Skype. There was a hospitality and a gentility about the way I was asked these tough questions that I really appreciated.” When Dr. Gillette came in for his interview, he found two bags of gifts waiting for him at his hotel room. His…...

    Nicholls pilots were “cleared to land,” swooping in for this years’ Nicholls Aeronautical Science Alumni reunion in Thibodaux. On June 6th alumni gathered for dinner and friendship, to remember the nationally recognized program and its founder. In 1975 Raceland native and a vascular surgeon with a passion for aviation had a dream to build a program at Nicholls. For more than 20 years Dr. Phillip A. Robichaux, Jr., the founder of the Nicholls State University Aeronautical Science Program, led the program to gain national recognition within the aviation industry and among other top rated aviation colleges like Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and the USAF Academy. Commonly referred to as the Nicholls Aviation Program, it produced world class professional aviators who today are living the dream as both professional and military pilots. The next commercial flight you take may be commanded by none other than a “Flying Colonel.” Dr. Robichaux succumbed to cancer in 2006 and the aviation program is no longer offered at Nicholls. But his dream and legacy live on through hundreds of alumni and aviators who started their careers as Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Certified Flight Instructors (CFI) at Nicholls State University. Dr. Robichaux’s vision, to produce exceptional aviators with the credentials and experience required of Airline Transport Pilots, led to the development of the “2+2 Program.” The Program challenged students to complete two degrees over a four year period, the Associate of Science (AS) in Aeronautical Science, plus…...

    Ronnie Rodriguez’s journey to chief financial officer at Nicholls State University started in the UL system schools. He started his education at UNO before coming to Nicholls for a little while. During that time, Rodriguez, Louisiana National Guard, was activated to serve in Operation Desert Storm. After that, he returned to Nicholls for a semester before moving to north Louisiana and finishing his accounting degree at ULM. Following his degree, Rodriguez worked for a CPA firm in north Louisiana doing tax work, write-up work, and auditing of local government. He was then presented with an opportunity to move to Baton Rouge and work for the Louisiana Legislative Auditor’s Office. He spent about three years in Baton Rouge doing state financial audits. An opportunity to move home and continue working for the same office was presented to him in 1999, which he accepted and continued to do so until 2003. At that point, Delgado Community College approached Rodriguez to move into the business division as the assistant controller. Over the next 11 years, Rodriguez would move from assistant controller to controller following Hurricane Katrina, and finally vice president of business at Delgado. The vice president role took him to October 2014, when he accepted the role of chief financial officer at Nicholls. He said, “It was a dual-purpose. My oldest daughter is a student at Southeastern, and I knew there would be an opportunity from a tuition standpoint. I also wanted…...
