Walter Dorroh, president of the LaSalle Economic Development District (LEDD), addresses a roomful of attendees for the monthly LEDD board meeting on September 10 held in conjunction with a celebration luncheon for the ACT Work Ready Communities Program Launch at Jena Town Hall. The program, which matches employers to qualified job applicants, is a new opportunity for local employers and citizens alike, and the parish is set to soon join an exclusive number of communities across the nation to become a Certified Work Ready Community. “LaSalle Parish was accepted into the ACT Academy in March 2015 along with several other parishes in the region,” LEDD Executive Director Cynthia Cockerham said. “The certification is recognized nationally as a powerful workforce development tool as well as an economic development tool.”
