Alica Brister and Tessia Tellis both will receive full-ride scholarships to CLTCC. Brister, a resident of Elmer and recent graduate of Oak Hill High School, plans to study practical nursing. Tellis is a resident of DeRidder, and she is already studying practical nursing at the Lamar Salter Campus in Leesville. These full-ride scholarships cover total program costs (tuition, fees, and books).
CLTCC received more than 40 scholarship applications. A committee made up of CLTCC personnel and business and community leaders chose the winners after interviewing the top 10 applicants Wednesday. The winners are selected based on a combination of attributes – academic performance, drive, ability, need, and desire to seek a career and technical education.
The Brian Caubarreaux “Do It Right” Scholarship was established in March 2015 by Brian Caubarreaux and Associates, a law firm owned by Brian Caubarreaux, to provide assistance to those striving for a better tomorrow. Students attending CLTCC will have the chance to “Do It Right” with a full-paid scholarship to pursue a career of their choice. Scholarship recipients must attend CLTCC and major in a Career and Technical Education program. CLTCC has seven campuses. The selected applicant can attend any campus.
