The following is a statement from Dr. Joseph Savoie, University of Louisiana at Lafayette president, on the death of Judge Kaliste J. Saloom Jr.:

“We have lost a community icon.

“Judge Saloom was a walking encyclopedia of University and community history.

“He not only knew the facts of history, but the nuances behind the facts.

“He was an integral participant in the development and evolution of the University, and while his presence at University events will be missed, his legacy will be remembered and cherished.”
