Schriever, LA – On June 6, 2018, the Fletcher Foundation was awarded $8,200 by Bayou Community Foundation for Commercial Vehicle Operations (CVO) program at the Fletcher Thibodaux facility on Tiger Drive. The funds are to assist with the purchase of a new trailer for the program.

In July 2017, Fletcher Technical Community College started the process for realignment with South Central Louisiana Technical College – Lafourche Campus (SCLTC). At that time, SCLTC’s Commercial Vehicle Operations program became a Fletcher program under Workforce Solution Division a non-credit program. This July the realignment will be completed between Fletcher and South Central Louisiana Technical College – Lafourche Campus. The Thibodaux facility on Tiger Drive and the Galliano Service Center in Galliano will become part of Fletcher Technical Community College.

Fletcher Foundation Executive Director, W. Chandler LeBoeuf, submitted the grant request to the Bayou Community Foundation on behalf of the Commercial Vehicle Operations (CVO) program. The Bayou Community Foundation is the only charitable foundation solely focused on building and sustaining the communities of Lafourche Parish, Terrebonne Parish, and Grand Isle.
