Posted: Updated:

GRAMBLING, La. (KNOE 8 News) - After her official welcome by the university Thursday, Cynthia Warrick is calling Grambling her new home.

It was a packed house in the black and gold room, where faculty and staff, students, and city officials welcomed Warrick with open arms, giving her gifts and even a key to the city.

Although she's only been interim president for a short while, she's already made some major changes, including; firing the athletic director and basketball coach. But, Warrick says this is the time for change.

"They were not the only administrators to have changed. I actually changed all of the administrators, but I guess you all, because of the Grambling's athletic reputation, focused in on that. But that was just part of our strategy to definitely get folks attention the changes here change is quick, and in order for us to get the job done in a short period of time we need to put the right people in the right places," said Warrick.

Warrick says she is grateful to the university for the reception. She says she has plans for Grambling's future, including; enhancing the schools technology and infrastructure, and enrollment.
