Northwestern State University has named Lia Henton manager of the university’s Cenla campus in Alexandria. Henton will work closely with students, faculty, staff and Cenla Campus Executive Director Jason Parks to continue the collaborative work taking place within the Cenla community and beyond.
“Our campus is excited to have Ms. Henton join the NSU Family,” Parks said. “We will work diligently to continue excellent service to our students while maintaining our level of commitment to our community and business partners.”

Henton is excited and honored to be serving NSU Cenla as the campus manager. She enjoys helping people accomplish their goals, and she is looking forward to serving the students, faculty and staff at NSU Cenla.
