Dr. Gayle Flowers, Vice Chancellor for Economic & Workforce Development at Bossier Parish Community College and Shreveport City Councilman Michael Corbin talk with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the need for workforce education and training to help Louisiana attract new business and industry to the state.

Flowers tells KEEL listeners about the courses for students of all ages currently offered at BPCC, courses that not only educate, but train students for jobs vital to the 21st century economy.

Councilman Corbin talks about the priorities for improving the area jobs outlook, specifically the old General Motors plant and how a trained workforce is a necessity in wooing an industry to fill the abandoned facility.
