CLEVELAND, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A week of events will precede the formal installation of William N. LaForge as the eighth president of Delta State University.

The Investiture Ceremony takes place on Nov. 1 at 10:30 a.m. in the Bologna Performing Arts Center on campus in Cleveland. The week will conclude with the university's homecoming game on Saturday, Nov. 2.

U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., will be the keynote speaker for the main event. LaForge was chief of staff to Cochran during his time in Washington, D.C.
