College Day at Shreveport Job Corps Center

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – Today, students at the Shreveport Job Corps Center talked to admissions counselors from area colleges.

Four year schools, two year schools, and vocational and tech schools were all on hand to answer all the students' questions.

"It's important to us to ensure that we focus on those institutions that are local to this area, because too many of our young people leave this area," said Lionel Fraser, Shreveport Job Corps Center Director.

"And the more we can connect them to the local area in the training they receive, the more experienced our workforce will be."

The Job Corps Center's College Day wrapped up Wednesday night with a Greek sorority and fraternity step show.
