LIVINGSTON - The Livingston Parish School Board has agreed to give 12.3 acres of undeveloped land to the state in exchange for a community and technical college.

Under the terms of the cooperative endeavor agreement, the school board will transfer a tract of land behind the Livingston Parish Literacy and Technology Center in Walker for the construction of a Northshore Technical Community College campus.

Livingston Superintendent John Watson said Thursday the parish has been working for over a year to get a future NTCC site

The National Center for Higher Education Statistics has determined Livingston Parish was ripe for a new college campus.

NTCC Chancellor Will Wainwright says the study determined the area would benefit from training in fields like health science, advanced manufacturing and nursing.
