FERRIDAY – Today, Governor Bobby Jindal marked the opening of a new student service facility at Central Louisiana Technical Community College’s Ferriday campus. The Jindal Administrated supported a $5.2 million investment to build the new facility.
The new facility is made up of nearly 40,000 square feet of instructional and student service areas. The facility also features a large auditorium space capable of holding campus events and student activities. The new facility will serve students taking courses in programs such as nursing, business office technology, welding and building technology.
Governor Jindal said, “Investing dollars at Central Louisiana Technical Community College and throughout our community and technical college system was one of my first acts as Governor. We made a commitment to improve the campuses and learning environment for students to help Louisiana continue to have the most highly-skilled workforce in the country. If we continue to train the best workers in the world, that means we can continue to attract companies who want to invest in Louisiana and create opportunities for our people to pursue their dreams here at home.”
Since 2008, the Jindal administration has supported more than $700 million dollars in critical higher education infrastructure investments across the state. This total includes general fund and capital outlay investments, including more than $225 million for Louisiana Community and Technical College campuses.
