Ville Platte Rotary Club visits C.B. Coreil Campus for their meeting

   The Ville Platte Rotary Club held their weekly meeting today (Tuesday) at the C.B.Coreil Campus of South Louisiana Community College.  The guest speakers included Carlene Jones, campus director, Darren Glover and Rev. Matthew Alfred. Coreil is one of ten campuses operated under the S.L.C.C. system.

   Carlene Jones announced the school is ready to begin a new CDL program for truckers. The school is teaming up with trucking companies who are willing to pay for the student loans once the students pass their CDL course of instruction.

   The school is also preparing to begin a Certified Nursing Assistant course for local students.

    Jones said her school is working with local industry such as Ville Platte Iron Works and Schlumberger to help train workers for good paying industry positions.

    Last year, the school had a student enrollment of about 100 students. The school offers courses of instruction such as welding, business and general studies.

    The Coreil Campus speakers were the guests of Rotarians Vic Slaven and Annette Johnson.

     In other business, the club welcomed two new members to the group: Renee Brown of the Evangeline Chamber of Commerce and new Parish Library Director Margaret “Margie” Mealer.

   Mayor Jennifer Vidrine announced that Domino’s Pizza will be opening a restaurant in Ville Platte in December at the corner of LaSalle and Tate Cove Road.
