The Lafayette Oxford University (LOU) Excel by 5 Coalition was also honored as Kathy Sukanek, Executive Director of United Way, received the game ball from John Hartwell, Senior Executive Associate Athletic Director. Sukanek was chosen by the Coalition to receive the game ball. United Way is serving as the lead institution in LOU’s effort to seek certification as a child friendly community through the Excel by 5 Program.
