OCTOBER 15, 2012

 

   The Ville Platte Chamber of Commerce today (Monday) heard from Dr. Natalie Harder, the new Chancellor for the South Louisiana Community College System.  The Coreil Campus of La. Technical College has been merged with other Acadiana Technical Colleges into the new South Louisiana Community College System as of July 1.
