|LTC campus project back on go in Ferriday|
The long wait is finally over for Mignonne Ater, dean of Louisiana Technical College, Shelby Jackson Campus, in Ferriday.
One year after the planned to ground-breaking for a $6 million project to repair and replace current facilities, Ater received word the project is finally moving forward.
"The governor (Bobby Jindal) has verbally announced his support and commitment to Act 391 and it is moving forward with the sale of bonds," Ater said. "We anticipate these bonds selling in August. For whatever reason it was put on hold and we didn't see any movement, but we've been assured that is getting ready to happen."
LTC, Shelby Jackson Campus was approved for the $6 million project in 2007 in which facilities will be upgraded. Shelby Jackson is one of the 14 community and technical college campuses to receive funds for facility renovation and expansion.
Ater said $1.5 million will be used for renovation of the current building and $3 million will be used for a new multi-purpose nursing/allied health building on property adjacent to the present facility.
The State Bond Commission approved $173 million in bonds that will provide new buildings and much-needed construction updates to facilities within the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS).
The project is expected to be completed in three years.
We will build a $1 million multi-purpose building that will include specific classrooms for nursing and allied health," she said. "Twenty out of 25 calls I get concern nursing. But it will also be a building that we can utilize for multiple functions."
"We're looking forward to meeting with the architect within the next few weeks and looking forward to seeing it come together," Ater said.
