The Tallulah Rotary Club hosted guest speaker Roman McKinney, career technical coordinator at Louisiana Delta Community College, during Tuesday’s regular meeting.
McKinney, a former U.S. Army veteran who also handles recruiting for LDCC, said the college is working to spread information on its programs as COVID restrictions begin to lift and some students begin to resume classes.
“This campus is only going to grow,” McKinney said of Tallulah’s LDCC location at 132 Old 65 South. “You’re not just a number here. We have smaller classes, so the instructors know you and they really care.”
Following a year of mostly virtual learning in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, students began returning to in-person classes at LDCC in February and McKinney said the college is now preparing for the summer semester, as well as the implementation of new programs.
“The LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) bridge program is starting in the fall,” he said. “We have LPNs working toward becoming an RN. We also offer CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) courses that are eight weeks from May 24 through Aug. 4.”
In addition to healthcare-related programs, McKinney also touched on the specifics of the college’s welding program, as well as dual-enrollment opportunities for high school students.
