Ben and Larke met in the fall of 1998 and dated throughout their years at Nicholls State University. Ben was a member of Phi Kappa Theta Fraternity and Larke was a Delta Zeta. The two enjoyed many socials together and have met life-long friends from their years spent at Nicholls. It is undecided which one pursued the other more, but the couple married in 2003 and both pursued their professional goals together. Today, Ben is the Director of Governmental Affairs at Omega Protein, recently acquired by Cooke Aquaculture. Larke is a Louisiana licensed attorney who manages Crosby Learning Solutions, an ABA Therapy Clinic. They currently reside in Fulshear, Texas with their two children Pierce and Stella. They are proud Colonels, who love coming back home. Ben and Larke believe that Nicholls provided them both with solid foundations for success. Go Colonels!
