ALEXANDRIA, La. (CLTCC) - The Rod Brady Campus of Central Louisiana Technical Community College (CLTCC), located in Jena, is among several Louisiana community and technical colleges selected for CMT’s "Empowering Education" tour in Louisiana.
CMT and Louisiana’s own country star Courtney Cole will soon travel in the first-ever statewide “Empowering Education” tour. CMT revealed dates for a series of eight free concerts today via Facebook, which officially kick off March 5 in Bossier City.
The tour is hosted in partnership with local education and nonprofit groups Louisiana Community and Technical Colleges System (LCTCS) and Louisiana Calling.
The tour was first announced last fall, and is part of a larger initiative that seeks to bring awareness to educational opportunities and increase the number of work-ready residents in the state.
The CLTCC Rod Brady concert is scheduled to take place Wednesday, March 7 at Jena High School. Other area high schools also will be able to attend, including LaSalle High School, Georgetown High School and Harrisonburg High School.
Jena native and local artist Adison Morea also will perform.
“There’s nothing I love more than being on the road, so to do it in my home state for education is truly incredible,” said Cole. “If I can inspire just one person to follow their heart and make their world better, then we’ve accomplished what we came here to do.”
Tickets for select dates are FREE and available to general public, and can be reserved beginning on Wednesday. For more information, see the attached link.
