A Mississippi State University graduate, Elizabeth has reported on the Louisiana Legislature and state politics since 2013. She previously covered Missouri politics for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Mississippi Legislature for the Jackson Clarion-Ledger.

Elizabeth's reporting on Louisiana politics has over the past year taken her to Iowa to follow Gov. Jindal's presidential campaign; to Cuba to report on the state's efforts to strengthen trade relations; to Washington, D.C., to cover the battle for disaster recovery aid following this year's catastrophic floods; and to many, many festivals across the state to see candidates on the campaign trail.

Elizabeth is married to Ross Dellenger, who covers LSU football for The Advocate.

Current Topic

     03/18 - Making Schools Safe

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion?
The school shooting in Broward County Florida that took the lives of 17 people has reignited the debate over how to make our schools safe. Energized students nationwide are calling for restricted access to certain guns. Congress is considering broader background checks and age limits on gun purchases. President Donald Trump is most enthusiastic about training school staff members to carry concealed weapons.

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion? How would gun control proposals affect the 45% of Louisianans who own guns? What mental health services are available to prevent teenagers from acting out violently? What increased security measures should schools take and how much will they cost? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Making Schools Safe” airing Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and WLAE in New Orleans. (Taping Tuesday, March 27.)
