School Notes:

Louisiana Technical College, Young Memorial Campus, began in Morgan City as an extension of Gulf Area Vocational School in Abbeville. During the period from 1959 through 1965 when the existing physical plant was dedicated, classes were offered in such facilities as an old building that was once a bakery shop and a corrugated metal building that was erected on the waterfront in Morgan City. The East St. Mary Chamber of Commerce adopted as one of its main projects the goal of building a spacious, modern facility to house the new school. With the support of the members of the Chamber of Commerce and many other community leaders, the Louisiana Legislature in 1960 passed Legislative Act 112, which authorized the establishment of a vocational school in Morgan City and which provided implementation for the school. The building that houses Young Memorial Campus was dedicated in May, 1965, and the new wing was added in 1976. In 1995, the Louisiana State Legislature officially changed the school's name to Louisiana Technical College, Young Memorial Campus. Young Memorial's main campus is located at 900 Youngs Road in Morgan City. This campus is located in St. Mary Parish, but it serves citizens of Assumption, Lafourche, Terrebonne, and St. Martin parishes. An additional campus was established at 1401 Cynthia, Suite A, Franklin, Louisiana, August, 1997. For over ten years, LTC Young Memorial's the Commercial Diving Program is one of the only programs of its kind in Louisiana and in the United States. It has trained 750 students and they come as far as: Spain, Costa Rica, Canada, South Africa, Australia, France, Great Britain, Egypt, Romania, the Russian Republic, Colombia, and Trinidad. Presently, Young Memorial graduates are working as Commercial Divers around the world. The Accrediting Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE) accredits each individual campus of the Louisiana Technical College.
