Baton Rouge, La. – Several members of the Southern University Ag Center’s state office swapped their dress shoes for sneakers on Wednesday, Jan. 6 as interim Chancellor Dr. Adell Brown, Jr. led them on a mile and a half walk around the rear parking lot of A. O. Williams Hall.

The group laced up their shoes as part of the Ag Center’s internal employee health initiative called, “Looking Good, Feeling Great,” which was launched on Monday, Jan. 4.

The program, which is voluntary, has been developed and executed especially for all SU Ag Center employees, regardless of their location.

Chancellor Brown and Dr. Gina E. Eubanks, SU Ag Center Vice Chancellor for Extension, will host a kick-off for the initiative at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 12 in room 191 of A. O. Williams Hall. Participants will receive health journals, exercise accessories and challenge instructions during the event.

Parish staff and other employees not located in the state office are encouraged to participate at their location and post photos of their activities on the SU Ag Center’s Facebook and Twitter pages using the hashtag, #SUAgCenterLGFG.
