LUS and LUS Fiber director Terry Huval has officially retired after making the announcement back in April 2018. In a press release, LCG officials say that Huval’s last day as director was yesterday, July 18. 

Huval leaves his position as director after 23 years of working for Lafayette. 

Lafayette Mayor-President Joel Robideaux stated in a press release that Huval’s work as LUS director was "outstanding," and that his leadership with the system "helped blaze the trail that has earned global acclaim."

Huval was instrumental in establishing LUS Fiber telecommunications system which is currently in its ninth year of operation in Lafayette. 

"While it’s never easy to say goodbye, I’m confident in the strength of these companies, and more importantly, the strength of the people left to continue this good work," said Huval.

As Utilities Director, Huval has served under four Mayor-Presidents and is the longest-serving director in LUS’ history. 

"While we are certainly losing a valuable leader," says Robideaux. "He is leaving us in very capable hands."
