Up to 50 South Louisiana Community College (SLCC) students soon may receive tuition assistance to become certified utility line workers due to an expansion of a program created by the Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC), its Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDBs) and other affiliated utility employer partners.
