CLTCC, LSU-A partner for scholarship transfer

Central Louisiana Technical Community College (CLTCC) and Louisiana State University of Alexandria (LSUA) are partnering to help students save money as they complete general education courses while ensuring hours earned count toward a four-year academic degree.

“We are very excited about this program and the ability to partner with LSUA to benefit students throughout Central Louisiana,” said CLTCC Chancellor James Sawtelle. “Under this unique program, students can complete their general education requirements at CLTCC for a single, significantly reduced flat rate and then have the opportunity to transfer those credits to LSUA and receive up to $2,000 a year in scholarship awards from LSUA.”

LSUA Chancellor Dr. Paul Coreil reiterated Sawtelle’s sentiments.

It’s beginning

It’s beginning

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Jena and LaSalle Parish. Matthew Mitcham, with the Jena town maintenance crew, puts up a Christmas decoration in downtown Jena last Friday morning. Other decorations went up in town that day, and other towns and communities are decorated for the holidays. Many community wide Christmas events have been canceled but residents are beginning to get into the Christmas Spirit. No doubt, this Christmas and New Years will be unlike any ever witnessed, but citizens are looking forward to the end of 2020, and the beginning of a new year, which hopefully will be much brighter.

Small Business Saturday

As small businesses continue to drive the economy and provide support to many communities, they deserve our appreciation, states Walter E. Dorroh, Jr., president of the LaSalle Economic Development District (LEDD).

LEDD is supporting “Small Business Saturday” which this year is Saturday, November 28th.

First, there was Black Friday. Then, there was Cyber Monday. Now, there’s Small Business Saturday, a day for all the small businesses that fuel the economy and invigorate our community. Shoppers can show their support by pledging to shop small on November 28. If millions of people shop small, it will be huge.
