“Dr. Elista Istre is an engaging, erudite speaker, whose lectures are both informative and entertaining. Her impressive depth of knowledge in the areas of Cajun and Creole culture, history, and music are invaluable. 
I’ve been a Road Scholar Coordinator for thirteen years and have always been delighted anytime we’ve had the opportunity for Elista to be a part of our program. The Road Scholar participants are not only responsive to her presentations (which have covered a range of topics from history to music, even alligators), but also charmed and enlightened! She is an incomparable asset.”
–Patti S. Daigle, Road Scholar Coordinator, Continuing Education, University of Louisiana at Lafayette
