Scores of faculty and staff members, community leaders and family members of the late Michele Dantin Guidry, former instructor of accounting at Nicholls State University, gathered for the dedication of the new Michele D. Guidry Executive MBA Classroom at the Nicholls College of Business Administration on Wednesday, March 16.
Funded via a $50,000 commitment from Guidry’s husband Jude, a $10,000 commitment from the Nicholls Foundation and approximately $11,000 in additional private donations, the classroom accommodates 20 students in a boardroom environment. Suitable for case discussions, seminars and lectures, the room encourages interaction among students and professors via state-of-the-art, user-friendly technology. Teaching tools include a viewing monitor that allows interactive writing and recording on the screen, ceiling-mounted surround speakers and a high resolution projector. Nicholls maintenance personnel built the classroom. Pictured from left are Guidry’s children – Thad, Taryn and Trisha – her husband Jude and Dr. Shawn Mauldin, dean of the College of Business Administration.
