There is probably no better friend of LSUE than Mary Werner, chairwoman of the LSU Board of Supervisors.
Werner is a frequent visitor to the campus for its major moments such as graduations, which is canceled this spring.

In 2016, Werner launched her campaign for Public Service Commission member, a race she lost to Mike Francis, of Crowley.
