CCE Alumni Spotlights

LSU College of the Coast & Environment alumnus Kevin Fitzwilliam is relentless in the pursuit of a "greener" Mardi Gras. While Fat Tuesday has always been associated with excess--and excess trash--this environmental sciences graduate has built a business around eliminating plastic waste from this time-honored celebration and lifting Ugandan women out of poverty in the process.

Dean Chris D'Elia and LSU alumna April Ellis discuss her time at LSU's College of the Coast & Environment and how it shaped where she is today.

This June, LSU alumna Camille Salters (nee Golden), who earned her master's in environmental sciences in 2013, was promoted to Associate Principal Owner of Pickering Firm, Inc., a full discipline firm that specializes in facility design, civil engineering, surveying, transportation, and natural/water resources.

LSU's College of the Coast & Environment, or CC&E, serves as a critical source for employers throughout Louisiana and the world to recruit knowledgeable and passionate scientists and employees that are in high demand. Katie Bowes (LSU '18) developed an exceptional understanding of the connectivity of wetland and marine science as a result of multiple hands on opportunities she took advantage of while earning her degree from CC&E.
