MONROE, LA – The third cohort of Reginald F. Lewis Scholars were pinned during the annual Universities of Louisiana Black Male Summit, held in New Orleans on June 21-22, 2023. Two students from each of the nine University of Louisiana System schools were presented as members of the third cohort.  

Representing ULM in cohort three are Myles Goldman, a sophomore majoring in History, and Edward Williams, a sophomore majoring in Accounting.  

The scholars were ceremonially pinned by UL System Board Chair Liz Pierre, UL System Board President and CEO Dr. Jim Henderson, and UL System Vice President for Advancement Dr. Claire Norris.  

“These Reginald F. Lewis Scholars are poised to become the next leaders of our great state and beyond,” said Dr. Henderson.  

The Reginald F. Lewis Scholars Program of the University of Louisiana System improves the college experience for black male students in the system. The Reginald F. Lewis Scholars Program provides a three-year curated educational experience focused on three key areas–academics, social advancement, and community service. The program seeks to recruit black males and provide educational programs, mentoring opportunities, and co-curricular experiences to improve outcomes.
