Kix Brooks Honored by His Alma Mater

Louisiana Tech will bestow its Tower Medallion, the university’s highest honor, on Brooks & Dunn’s Kix Brooks on Saturday (May 18). The medallion represents “excellence in professional achievement, humanitarian and community service, and service to the college,” says a college representative. Brooks graduated from Louisiana Tech with a speech degree in 1978. “I loved college and everything it had to offer,” says Brooks, a Louisiana native. “I learned a lot of things that actually prepared me for the real world. Let’s be honest: it’s the subtle things you learn that make you more competitive and responsible.” 05/17/02
