LaForge to get back in office after vacation accident
Published: July 21,2013
CLEVELAND — Delta State University president Bill LaForge says his doctors have given him a clean bill of health, and he will be back at work next week.
DSU spokeswoman Michelle Roberts said Friday that LaForge will attend a Delta State alumni meeting next Thursday in Jackson, then will return to campus in Cleveland.
During the July 4 weekend, LaForge suffered a subdural hematoma — a gathering of blood on the brain’s surface — while at a South Carolina beach with family. Roberts says while LaForge’s injury was not major, he went to a local hospital when he continued to suffer headaches and pain.
In a letter to Delta State friends and colleagues Friday, LaForge says he has been “blessed with great care and a remarkable and quick recovery.”
