After much hard work and preparation for the work force, Northeast Louisiana Technical College students went out with a bang at NELTC’s graduation exercise.
NELTC held convocation ceremonies for all six of its campuses on Dec. 8 at the Monroe Civic Center. Students from Bastrop campus, Delta-Ouachita campus in West Monroe, North Central campus in Farmerville, Northeast campus in Winnsboro and Ruston campus came together to celebrate the completion of their technical college careers.
A 6,000 square foot building with multiple occupants, including a 2,000 square foot flea market, was partially lost due to a fire that occurred shortly after midnight today.
Eric Brazzel, public information for the Ruston Fire Department, said firefighter received the call at 12: 18 a.m. that smoke was coming from the back of a building located at 1414 West California Ave.
