Impact Awards

The Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) Foundation Impact Awards recognize individuals, organizations, business, and industry whose leadership efforts have been notably effective in advancing Louisiana’s education and workforce needs of our students, businesses and communities. Annual nominations are solicited statewide to spotlight the outstanding advocates for their accomplishments in addressing issues that are determined to be of importance to improving education and workforce development such as college and career readiness, college access and affordability, education reforms that ensures all workers are equipped to compete for jobs and succeed, access to career pathways that align with Louisiana’s workforce needs, leadership development and teaching excellence.

In addition to recognition, the LCTCS Impact Awards program provides a platform for individuals, organizations, business and industry with an opportunity to learn what exemplary leaders are doing by sharing the winner’s best practices and achievements. It is a great networking opportunity for developing meaningful partnerships and effective collaborations across sectors.

LCTCS Foundation and Capital Area United Way Bowling for a Cause

The LCTCS Foundation leads and inspires private support for Louisiana’s community and technical colleges to ensure excellence in meeting the education and workforce needs of our State’s students, businesses and communities.



One of the primary objectives of the LCTCS Foundation is to support our colleges as they grow their assets to support workforce development programming and the students and business these colleges serve.


A primary tool in improving faculty and staff skills and programming excellence, resulting in a better-trained workforce, a growing middle class and a more prosperous state.


The Foundation collects scholarship dollars and distributes them to our colleges so that they may award these funds directly to needy and deserving students.


Supporting a public education and engagement program and policy development to leverage a public agenda for higher education focused on meeting the needs of students, communities and business and industry.

Our colleges are changing the lives of all Louisianans and the LCTCS Foundation wants to make sure that our lawmakers and our communities know about this great work. Through our outreach programs, the LCTCS Foundation encourages and supports real solutions for Louisiana. This outreach is critical as we set our sights on Our Louisiana 2020 and the outcomes we hope to achieve.


Visitors to the Capitol Rotunda have an opportunity to engage with students from all 13 two-year colleges and industry partners. Hands-on demonstrations are also offered in more than 15 programs which are aligned to the state’s immediate workforce needs.


The community and technical college culinary arts showcase features our six culinary programs around the state and gives visitors an opportunity to savor the unique cuisine prepared by our students.
