MONROE, La. (AP) - Jackson Parish, whose residents have had to travel outside their boundaries to access Louisiana Delta Community College, will soon have its own campus.

Delta Chancellor Barbara Hanson tells The News-Star (https://tnsne.ws/1AueEBb ) the project was made possible through a 2013 law handled by hometown state Rep. Jim Fannin, R-Jonesboro, who is chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.

She says the law allowed for the sale of more than $251 million in bonds to provide 29 community and technical college facility projects throughout the state.

She says the Jackson Parish campus will be located in a former factory in Jonesboro following a $3 million renovation.
