UT Tyler Holds Luncheon For Louisiana Students

UT Tyler had some colorful food on the menu today. The school held a luncheon for Louisiana students who are now attending UT Tyler because of Hurricane Katrina.

Coaches and staff joined the students for a little gumbo and a relaxing time by the pool. "They've done so much since we got here," says John Bernecker, a manager of the University of New Orleans girl's basketball team. "They've all looked out for us. It's been kind of homey with everybody coming together to help out everybody from New Orleans."

The students hope to find out when they'll be able to return home soon. About 75 Louisiana students and staff were on hand for the luncheon, which was sponsored by the Alumni Association.
