The Central Louisiana Technical Community College (CLTCC) Huey P. Long Campus Forest Technology program is pleased to welcome Drax Biomass as an industry partner. The program is celebrating its one-year anniversary and recognizing Jay Evans, procurement site manager for LaSalle Bioenergy (Drax Biomass), for his assistance developing the Forest Technology Program. Evans is a member of the Forest Technology Occupational Advisory Committee which consists of industry leaders that guide the program toward producing students capable of performing jobs that industry needs.

“It makes a lot of sense for businesses and educational institutions to work together to design training and curricula for students who will be entering the workforce,” Evans said. “By sponsoring a class by Landmark Spatial Solutions that allowed all students and both Forestry instructors to receive additional training using T-Cruise, Solo Forest, and Arc GIS, students will leave CLTCC with an understanding of the latest technology in field of Forestry that is second to none.”
