From 1968 until 1989, Dr. Dan Kyle taught thousands of students about ethics, governmental auditing, and service while at LSU. Dan served two terms on the University Senate addressing academic problems on a university-wide basis. Conservative, independent, and honest, Dan�s reputation at LSU was about to go statewide.
In August of 1989, corrupt politicians were introduced to a worthy adversary who was willing to pursue a change and correct illegal practices.
