Gallot wants to build a library that's more technology driven and has less books.

Gallot is excited about this project and explained it's importance to the school's future.

Legislators nodded with approval, but with limited money for new construction, it's not certain Gallot will get the funding.

Governor Edwards himself says the state has limited funds
for construction, which could make the road of success
more difficult for Gallot.

Gallot says in spite of the odds, he is still optimistic
about the future.

"Our model is a model of growth right now, so that's what we plant to do with he school's new nursing program and with the library we're building, says Gallot. "It will be cutting edge and unlike any other around here."
