KSLA News 12 Editorial: July 28th-Bossier Parish Community College

Posted: Updated:

With all the changes Bossier Parish has seen over the last few years, none have been more impressive than the renaissance of the Bossier Parish Community College campus.

t's not your father's trade school. The campus is beautiful and the coursework is breathtaking in scope. BPCC's new visionary leadership has helped turn a community college into a force to be reckoned with.

In fact, for the third year in a row, BPCC ranks among the top five fastest growing community colleges in the nation.  

Why is it so successful?

In the words of Chancellor Jim Henderson, they have "purposely created programs aligned with needs of employers and employment opportunities for their students." A great example of that is the brand new $22 million manufacturing training facility now being built on the campus. The new space will allow workers to train for jobs in manufacturing, energy and construction. What's happening at BPCC is truly remarkable. 

I'm James Smith.
