RUSTON, La. (AP) — Louisiana’s governor will give a speech about ethics next week at a state university.

Gov. John Bel Edwards’ speech will be carried live on Zoom at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Louisiana Tech said in a news release Friday.

He will be the 15th speaker in the William Ardis Marbury, Jr. and Virginia Lomax Marbury Lecture Series, hosted by the school’s College of Business.

“Leaders across our world have experienced unprecedented challenges throughout the pandemic, with daily, if not hourly, decisions being made that affected employees, companies, the economy, and society at large,” said Chris Martin, dean of the College of Business. “This is a unique opportunity for our students to hear Gov. Edwards’ personal experiences surrounding ethical leadership and decision making in the midst of crisis,”
