La. Delta Community College returns to Farmerville

The new campus will reopen in the old Farmerville HS

FARMERVILLE, La. (KNOE)- On Friday, educators, state officials and community members celebrated the opening of the new Louisiana Delta Community College (LDCC) campus in Farmerville.

The opening took about two years and was an all hands on deck effort.

The new campus will offer a variety of courses including clinical nurse aid and manufacturing.

LDCC Chancellor W. Dennis Epps says that Delta's return is a "rebirth."

"Because of the great, great commitments of the community, the strength of the people that are here, and their commitment to higher education, we're back and we're excited to be here," Epps says.

Epps says that the new campus has led to a 15 percent increase compared to last summer.

Marion, Origin, and First National banks also made donations towards the new campus.
