LCTCS and SkillsUSA?

Pertinent to Louisiana SkillsUSA and the Louisiana Community and Technical College System

In the LCTCS board meeting of July 1999, the Academic Affairs Committee recognized by unanimous resolution all Louisiana SkillsUSA members, both professional and students who achieved national merit. In the address to the board regarding the program, Mr. Rabalais explained, "SkillsUSA is a program that is responsive to business and industry by promoting occupational and leadership skills and other assets such as employability skillsin students in order for them to make a smooth transition from school to the workplace."


During its meeting of February 9, 2000, the Louisiana Community and Technical College Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to encourage LTC faculty participation in student organizations, conferences, and activities, and to have Supervisor Jared Lord formulate a letter to the Directors of the LTC campuses expressing the Board's support of the SkillsUSA program.

On motion of Supervisor Christopher, seconded by supervisor Trist, the committee of the Whole unanimously voted to encourage LTC faculty participation in student organizations' conferences and activities and to have Supervisor Lord formulate a letter to the Directors expressing the Board's support.
